    If I pay my employees more, prices will rise. But if I pay myself more or take a seven-figure bonus, prices stay stable. It’s simple math.

    Thank you for the explanation. I do wonder how many will understand the simplicity of our system as you have so well stated.

    Too bad the panel was so small, or we could have seen the surrounding crowds of millions of people going to retailers and food joints that charge a single dollar less who also pay a lower wage. There is a greater strength in numbers, I guess. They, of course, are held blameless for the sweat shops and McBusinesses they patronize and support, because, you know, they have to get by on a minimum or a low wage. If only we could take the billions from the rich and give it away to the people so everybody could have $100 this week and then nothing tomorrow!

    So do you think the poor or middle class won’t spend that extra $100 somewhere? And that the billionaire stashing it in some off-shore bank will be a better scenario? So far it hasn’t been the case.

    Of course they will. But like Edison’s DC power distribution network, government resistance to commerce, taxes, will eat it all up before it goes very far. Tomorrow, the $100/person is $75. The next day it is $56. The next it is $42, and so on and so on. And every person has then obtained goods and services and offered no goods or services in return, just a piece of paper that represents goods and services never performed, an empty promise and a lie, suitable for the campaign trail.
