Jesus fucking christ, precisely, I hire people who satisfy my requirements and I pay money to those people. Amazing! That's just amazing.
Am I doing it out of 'nepotism' or 'fraud'? No, I am building products and services that I am HOPING to sell and I am also doing some custom work for clients that I found already.
The money that I pay as salaries did not have to be paid for those products that I decided to build before having a single client outside of myself. So I am the employer and I created the jobs by hiring people and training them and giving them tasks to do and paying them money out of my own fucking pocket. Out of MY bank account into THEIR bank account for things I want them to do.
Whether or not I sell my products and services further to somebody else does NOT concern the people that I am paying to work for me, as far as they are concerned when the month is over they get paid. It doesn't matter to them if I burn the product or sell it or do whatever with it, they get paid either way.
I wish I could buy a yacht for 10,000USD but I can not. I have the 10,000USD to spend on a yacht but nobody is supplying yachts at 10,000USD. There is no fucking supply of yachts at 10,000USD.
If somebody can come up with a way to sell me a yacht at 10,000USD, guess what: they got themselves a customer, a market that otherwise doesn't exist because there are no yachts at 10,000USD.
In fact I would love to buy a yacht at 500USD. Even a more complicated question: where are these fucking yachts at 500USD? There are none, there is no supplier that can do it. The problem is lack of supply, never lack of demand.
You (or somebody) asked earlier: how come the companies are looking at 'customer confidence' numbers in the USA to figure out what to do with their stock? Well, the fact is that USA is an unproductive country and the unproductive country that it is, people in it have very limited ability to buy things. The word conman comes from confidence. The confidence trick is what is being at play here, it's not whether people have jobs and productive jobs at that to buy what they want, the question is: will they go into more debt to buy what they cannot afford?
Now, when your economy is built on confidence and specifically on confidence of consumers to go into more debt rather than on productivity - you have yourself a problem. In a productive economy it is not about confidence of a consumer, it is about employment rate. REAL employment rate, not fictitious bullshit pushed by the government propagandists. Real price of money, real inflation, real employment, real productive output.
Without a real economy all that we can talk about is confidence tricks.
Back to the question at hand, who creates jobs. Jobs are created by people who hire other people for money. Not by some ephemeral down the line client who may or may never materialise, but by the person who puts his own money on the table.
Learn something useful in your life rather than listening to garbage political propaganda of the collectivist state.
