Depends on how they are getting richer doesn’t it. I know of people that have gutted companies turning people out of work, or moving the factories to foreign countries with cheaper labor. More and more people out of work, and decidedly poorer.
Interesting to note these were mostly Republicans.
No, it doesn't matter. One does not have to take from another to gain you moron. The only one which does that is the government.

And your nonsense that it is all "republicans" shows how ignorant you truly are. I don't see too many poor Democrats in Congress or Hollywood.

I dont think you realize how capitalism works..
the rich get richer as a funtion of gravity...
the rich get rich off the consumption demands of the middle class..
no middle class??
less demand = many less rich guys....
but If I said the sky was blue......youd likely try to refute me on that.
Again, I lost my decoder ring.

Want to be taken seriously, try learning 3rd grade grammar.

False on all accounts. Economics is based upon limited resources of all kinds. Government employment stimulates the economy. Deficits make little or no difference until government borrowing competes with private sector borrowing driving up interest rates and inflation or until the government cannot borrow anymore.

Econ 101 is beyond the TeaTard mind.
You have obviously never owned a business.

Who got poor because Bill Gates developed Windows and made BILLIONS?

Macro economics is nothing like owing a small business. A small business is nothing like a huge publicly owned business.

My owning or not owing a business has nothing to do with
Bill Gates or Microsoft.

What a jackass!!!

It worked great in the United States during WWII and caused explosive economic growth in the 50s.

See, you never understand macro economics. Go take a class sometime, you might learn something.

It's OK that you don't want to answer the question. We understand that it would destroy your previous assertion.

Go take a class.. That is what one usually says when they don't actually know what they are talking about.

BTW, there is a reason why people who teach aren't making money doing what they are the supposed experts on.

Enjoy!

"Have you ever witnessed the anger of the good shopkeeper, James Goodfellow, when his careless son has happened to break a pane of glass? If you have been present at such a scene, you will most assuredly bear witness to the fact that every one of the spectators, were there even thirty of them, by common consent apparently, offered the unfortunate owner this invariable consolation—"It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Everybody must live, and what would become of the glaziers if panes of glass were never broken?"

Now, this form of condolence contains an entire theory, which it will be well to show up in this simple case, seeing that it is precisely the same as that which, unhappily, regulates the greater part of our economical institutions.

Suppose it cost six francs to repair the damage, and you say that the accident brings six francs to the glazier's trade—that it encourages that trade to the amount of six francs—I grant it; I have not a word to say against it; you reason justly. The glazier comes, performs his task, receives his six francs, rubs his hands, and, in his heart, blesses the careless child. All this is that which is seen.

But if, on the other hand, you come to the conclusion, as is too often the case, that it is a good thing to break windows, that it causes money to circulate, and that the encouragement of industry in general will be the result of it, you will oblige me to call out, "Stop there! Your theory is confined to that which is seen; it takes no account of that which is not seen."

It is not seen that as our shopkeeper has spent six francs upon one thing, he cannot spend them upon another. It is not seen that if he had not had a window to replace, he would, perhaps, have replaced his old shoes, or added another book to his library. In short, he would have employed his six francs in some way, which this accident has prevented."

Small minds can only grasp small concepts.

What does this have to do with the economics of a country or large corporation?

I guess it was a little over your head, based on your irrelevant response.

I guess they didn't teach that to you in "class".

Poor baby thinks Bastiat is a TeaTard.

I guess in your elite "economics" class they failed to educate you on him.

Too bad.

but im sure you had other business then.

herbert hoover was the only presdident who really agreed with you.

in response to world trade fizzling out??

he attempted to balance the budget!!

HAHAHAHA!!!!

it would be funny if your philosophy didnt lead to the great depression.!

when money is needed to get the economy going??? well need to inject it.

the idea is that growth can somehow compensate....

that is impposible if you give the wealthy a HUGE tax cut and start two unbudgeted wars....

your heard me...

TWO UNBUDGETED WARS!!
