I was discussing this with two of my Libertarian/Conservative Fools/friends. We were talking about employment rates. One of them had said that without entrepeneurs and investors willing to take risks, there won't be any businesses for people to be employed at. I said that no matter how many entrepreneurs and investors you have, businesses exist and grow because of customers buying your products and that creates the need for employees. I got the written equivalent of a puzzled and uncomprehending look.I can start a business without much capital. I could start making sandwiches to sell to my coworkers. I could take in laundry. I could paint portraits. Do wedding photography. Give people rides in my car. I can think of hundreds of things I could do, and call it a business. But it won't be a successful business if no one buys what I'm selling.Frydaze1
