Close, but not the whole story. The recession was not solely due to US Banks & Wall Street. I could take advantage of what you said by pointing out that Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank and Senate Banking Committee by Chairman Chris Dodd were in charge, but I won't.

What is revenue generating work??
Is it product demand.
Companies don't hire unless they have something that needs done.
This is what I just said & you said I was wrong.
My God, you are too stupid to even know what you post.
Revenue-generating work is producing a product or service for sale.

Businesses are surviving today by cutting overhead personnel to an absolute minimum, and then cutting some more.

There are many things that "need to be done", such as janitorial services, where it makes no sense to hire someone on your payroll, particularly with intrusive governmental regulations.

Development costs are to be spread over several years of production.
I know you right whiners don't get it but many people do understand or need to reduce our oil usage & greenhouse gas emissions.
As more & more electric cars are sold, production costs will come down.
Again, you demonstrate a lack of business knowledge.
You make the unproven assumption that the Chevy Volt has a future and will ever sell a significant number of units at a profit.

Someone else is likely to produce a useful electric or natural gas or hydrogen car, ending the future for the Volt.

House Science Committee Questions Existence of Meteors

Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology said today that the committee would hold hearings next week “to settle the question, once and for all, of whether meteors exist.”


“The media has been in something of a frenzy recently on this whole topic of meteors,” said chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas).“I think it’s irresponsible of them to frighten the public about something that, at the end of the day, may be about as real as unicorns.”

Rep. Smith said that he had seen recent reports of the “so-called Russian meteor” of last week, but added,“Maybe it’s the scientific skeptic in me, but this ‘meteor’ may just have been a bunch of fireworks that some Siberian fellow set off after drinking a little too much Stoli. It is winter, after all, and that’s how those folks keep warm.”
The Texas congressman said that he and other meteor doubters are worried that scientists had “a vested interest” in convincing people that meteors are real:“They want the government to spend more money on science, and, let me tell you, that is the last thing the Science Committee is going to do.”

As for the scientific theory that meteors may have killed the dinosaurs, Rep. Smith chuckled,“That theory would also have us believe that there were dinosaurs.”

So, you have no one in "your company" to sweep the floors , clean the restrooms, handle customer complaints, do any accounting, mow the grass,etc etc etc.
Floor sweeping, restroom cleaning, and grass mowing should definitely be contracted out. What do you do with the lawn care folks in the winter?

Many companies also contract out large portions of accounting and payroll functions, or centralize them in one office.

As for customer complaints, well-run companies have very few and the complaints should be handled by the person responsible for the work, particularly in service businesses. Nobody wants to talk to a complaint flunky with no authority.

Costs are driven by special gasoline blends and lack of refinery capacity due to environmentalist opposition to new construction.

On another note!
Danica gets the pole for the Daytona 500! First woman to ever achieve that honor.
If last night's race is any indication the 500 is going to be a ball to the walls hell of a race!!!!!!!!!!
People start a business because they want to be independent; they make a profit on the work performed by their employees. A smart and consciencious employer realizes the value of his employees and pays them accordinglt. A stingy employer often only gets the worst employees and mistreats them so they end up sabotaging the business and stealing from him. You have a hateful and ignorant view of the employer, employee relationship. The profit that is achieved is a group effort that should be shared with everyone.

Gas prices are currently high in California because of traditional laws of supply and demand. Supply is currently low because of lack of refinery capacity, not because of the price of crude oil. Refineries need to partially shut down twice each year to change formulations, and normal maintenance affects supply because there is no spare capacity.

Precisely.

Yet your running mate, the teacher wannabe, is accusing "the Masseys" of all the evils in the world.

Blah Blah Blah.

More proof you never ran squat.

Small businesses & especially small manufacturers do not sub out everything like you say.

They hire people to do it. People whose function does not add to the profitability.

You made yet again another stupid post & make make yourself look more foolish trying to defend it.
