    It is the wealthy that provides jobs, ever heard of anyone working for someone that is poor..?

    old wealth, always stands on the backs of the poor while pissing and saying it’s raining and claiming they need another tax cut or they will cut some more jobs.

    Actually, it’s the wants to be wealthy that provide most of the jobs, as we’re told that most businesses are small businesses and that, in aggregate, they provide most of the jobs. So I guess the answer to your question would be yes.

    Yes, a lot of jobs are provided by small businesses that are struggling and making no excess profits for the first few years. The owners may not be destitute, but they’re not exactly rolling in dough.

    Don"t think real clearly, do you?

    It is middle class consumer demand that creates jobs, not rich people.

    Corporate welfare, highest capital gains tax in the world, but so full of loopholes, that the truly rich pay zero or get the government subsidies, while hard working people cannot suport even themselves on their wages, let alone raise children—America! What a country! Yeah and you can employ hundreds and make millions, and still be called “small” business. What a farce. Business does not create demand, people do.
    Do not assume that I am a raging socialist. Capitalism has its useful efficiencies. People who work harder or smarter, of course should be rewarded! But the playing field needs to be leveled. A plutocratic aristocracy is the last thing any of us need, including the rich. Elizabeth Warren is right. No one builds it by himself. Maybe if we spent a bit less on killing people and spreading hatred toward ourselves, and instead allowed our children to reach their potential, this country could become a decent place to live, and truly be the shining city on the hill for the rest of the world, instead of the home of Hollingsworth Hound and Lucky Ducky.

    A certain amount of wealth is a necessary (but not sufficient) prerequisite for creating jobs. The guy who invented the railroad (not shown here) actually created the wealth but probably had to borrow to build the prototype and create the first few jobs. The guy who bought that idea and used it to scam the government out of millions of acres of land may have had to borrow as well but at least he created a lot of jobs. The guy who inherited the accumulated wealth of entrepreneurs and taxpayers alike may incidentally create a few jobs but it seems like a misuse of semantics to call that productivity.

    The job makers are not the rich nor their immense corporations. It is the small start up companies that do that. Just them.

    Compared to the rich we are all poor. Compared to the super rich we are bothersome ants that need discipline.

    Also the attrition rate for start ups is terrible. About 50% on average fail by the second year.

    Good news even in Heaven there will be slaves and servants. Also no family ties or families at all.

    The key word left out is the word ‘inherited’ – read Thomas Piketty’s book on ‘Capital in the twenty first century’

    the more wealth that is spread among the population, the stronger our economy and from that the stronger our country. Unlike know when a few of the super rich own so much and control more of our govt, military and our economies while fewer and fewer get more and more of the wealth. We are already in the 2nd Gilded Age. Comfortable yet? It will continue till there is no Middle Class. Just like it was before 1945.

    @androgenoide

    All of the Barons had govt help in one form or fashion. They could not have done it entirely on their own.
