So, you're saying that the MAJORITY is unproductive, and they're STEALING from the PRODUCTIVE MINORITY? What the fuck are you talking about fool? Tell me, how are those "minority" so fucking productive? Signing the articles of incorporation and moving 1's and 0's between two points isn't fucking productive you moron. Who is being productive here are the workers that allow the business to make money. Nowhere is this more evident than in small businesses. I know, I've owned small businesses, starting with next to ZERO dollars, doing all the work myself.
When I was the Majority of my labor, I was most productive. When I hired on some help, I managed contracts and filed taxes, did office work for half the time. I relied on my laborers to do the productive work. That desk work is necessary red-tape, but it's far from fucking productive. Wheeling and dealing clients to get more jobs is necessary, but you're a fucking idiot if you think it's more productive that the people doing the labor to fill those contracts.
When you were an owner/manager I think you could be pretty productive, it's just that your productivity was expressed through the people below you. I've had bad management before and the result was despite doing a lot of work I wasn't really productive because the work was worthless.
When I talk about unproductive rich people I'm not talking about owners or managers from your position. I mean the people like George Bush, I'm not trying to be partisan but his legacy as a businessman was losing a lot of money, he didn't start and run companies because he was good at it, he did it because he had family connections. I think there's a lot of this going on, an upper class that have excellent high level jobs essentially handed to them that they're not really qualified for and where it's kinda hard to evaluate their value.
There's a whole other potion of the economy tied up in investment and financial services that has some productive value in directing capital to good companies that need it, but because they're so good at directing money they'd managed to direct much more of the economy than is required into their own sector. There's a lot of people making a lot of money gaming the system instead of actually helping organize the economy.
That's what I think of when I think of the unproductive rich, not the managers or owners who got their on their own work and talent, but the people who have learned to manipulate the economy to get rich without really adding anything in return.
