People always ask me this question and I always give the same answer. It’s simple and almost mind boggling that even some Ivy League “brains” don’t understand this.
If creators didn’t create, what would consumers have to buy?
If consumers didn’t consume, who would buy the creations of the creators?
If laborers didn’t labor, how would anything get built, shipped and maintained?
Everyone is integral to the success and sustainability of the market system. The cogs don’t just help the movement, they make up the structure. Remove one and you weaken and even collapse the entire machine of prosperity.
From innovators to mass producers to laborers and billionaires, if people didn’t participate in the Market, there would be no Market. There would be no jobs, no incomes, no progress, no society.
The less people participate in the Market, the less society benefits. The more input, regardless of who and how that input comes in, the better off society is.
The Market is the chicken and the egg. It doesn’t matter who came first, what matters is that they both remain integral to the cycle. Lose one, lose it all.
