Why is Small Business the principal job-creator in any economy, and the real “growth engine” of any strong/healthy economy? This is something which is never clearly spelled-out, not by the talking-heads in the media; not by their so-called “experts”, the charlatan economists; certainly not by our pseudo-leaders.
There is an important reason why we’re never given a clear, precise explanation of how/why Small Business is so beneficial to economies. It is because once armed with such an understanding, we would understand why literally everything these Traitor Governments have been doing to us over more than a quarter century is entirely against the interests of the vast majority of our populations, and thus against the best interests of our economies, as a whole.
Small Business is so completely benign and beneficial because of both what it is, and what it isn’t. What Small Business “is” is labour-intensive. Get a small business (or several) to perform the same service/task as a big business, and the small business(es) will hire more people to do it – but not necessarily change any higher price.
What Small Business “isn’t” is a killer of competition. By its very definition, Small Business is incapable of having any detrimental impact on competition, at all. With societies filled with right-wing ideologues, continually spouting the “capitalist” virtue of competition, one would think that on this basis alone the ideologues would prefer pro-competition Small Business ahead of competition-exterminating Big Business.
But this runs contrary to the pseudo-intellectual orthodoxy pushed on us by the principle pimps for Big Business: the charlatan economists. What the charlatans would have us believe is that because of so-called “economies of scale” that bigger is (always) better. There are several arguments to make in rebutting this simplistic pablum.
