The “Job Creator” Fallacy
Jobs, jobs, jobs.
Who creates them? Some Republicans say the wealthy. Some Democrats say consumers. Other Republicans say it’s businesses. Other Democrats say it’s the middle class.
The fact of the matter is that there is no one job creator. Job creation is a byproduct of an exchange of goods/services. Therefore, you need all parts. The consumer, the producer, and the good/service. No one part is less important than the other.
So when we want to grow our economy and create more jobs, we shouldn’t just be looking at who deserves a tax break. Instead we need work to better aid (or remove inhibitors of) these economic exchanges.
