    Big companies give business to small companies, independent contractors, employees, etc. as well as offering massive value to their customers... Big companies - are kinda like roads - they are part of the underlying infrastructure upon which the economy and country depends to function. They are the foundation you build new and greater things on top of.

    I understand people not liking being small and subject to shifting winds though. Sometimes the actions of a big company are like a storm or an earthquake, blowing away the lives of ordinary people.

    The thing about shareholders / banks, is really just that without them, you can't get anything big off the ground. No matter how great your ideas, you're usually stuck without the funding to make those things happen.

    The investors don't contribute a huge amount apart from money (they have already earned), but then they also only get a small-ish chunk of the profits (unless the business only happened because of their money)

    ... Right now, I'm working on a project where a bunch of friends are pooling together their money to do a startup. Even if they do no work, they do deserve a share of the profits (So you see... my responsibility is to the shareholders - not to people that may one day be hired for a salary that they agree to.. Not unless they contribute more than the worth of their salary and thus deserve more in return)

    Well, that thing was humorous and kinda retarded.

    How do share holders help the economy? Well, initially the people who buy shares help fund the company's initiatives and ability to serve other people (and thus make money from them)... in return they get a share of profits... so the system facilitates the creation of new services and allow companies to be competitive (and a company that's not making more money is obviously not paying people)

    If you buy shares, you get rights to future profit that the other guy would've gotten, freeing them to invest elsewhere or possibly get out of a jam... and that use of money to get whatever they need will pay for other people's work and thus their lives.

    As for republican thought, US companies usually aren't doing all that well these days, but their survival is necessary for not just their employees but also ask the companies that provide services to them (and thus their employees)

    ... if you create a small business, you're often not going to get good money from individuals, your survival often deepens on finding clients / companies that can consistently afford to give you decent amounts of money (life tends to be hard if you don't have recurring revenue streams)

    ... Anyway, people with money have always had more influence (which kinda also often means that they have created value for others on a higher level than the average person to have made that money)... but anyway, it's more a problem with the democratic system... you need to get a lot of people behind you and teaching them also costs a lot of money. Doing stuff that will make people like you, often also takes money.

    (Drama)

    I've only been in Las Vegas for about 12 hours so I don't know the buildings there, but that pic is looking out of the crown of the Statue of Liberty.

    in an earlier post you mentioned trying to start a free form thread...I think they don't work is because the limitation sweetens the prize and forces a choice, sometimes I just don't respond, this synchronicity thing is a welcome mutation
