They need our markets. We do not need them. All they do is monopolise markets and desroy opportunity. Its not just the low paid worker that suffers it is everyone. Small Business cannot compete. Fewer jobs mean's less at the top which is why you have so many college educated people working in the services industry and as janitors. This is why you have Tent Cities.
What is going to happen is we burn the whole thing down. Burn it to the ground and salt the earth. Then we will rise like a pheonix. (peacfully of course/figuratively)
And I could not disagree more. The reason people like you can point to government and scare scared American's with words like 'socialism' and communisism' is because your governments are the corporations.
They work for corporation's. Not for the people. That will end. And soon.
Ironic. You accuse me of fear-mongering while you yourself make veiled threats about coming events with no substantial proof.

Yes, the market creates jobs. But what is the market? The market is people engaging in commerce, buying and selling from each other. The difference between our perspectives is that I prefer to address the pragmatic issue that people will band together to produce more using less resources. And that is what a corporation is.
You speak against the market, not for it. It is akin to saying if we make car manufacturers illegal, we will simply build more cars.
My question was who creates jobs. Your answer indicates the free market will do so. But your explanation states that the free market is evil and will be abandoned for some better plan, apparently with government in total charge of the economy.
So no, you do not answer my question. You only confuse it.
The last person that should be explaining how captalism works is a socialist, especially a hardcore marxist!
and I do live in a world of reality.
