One of my favorite economic quotes is from Nick Hanauer. It goes, "Companies don't hire when they have an abundance of profits. They hire when they have an abundance of customers".
What this quote means to me is making the wealthy more wealthy in hopes of more jobs is a fools errand. We need to put money into the hands of those who would spend it and let greater demand for products and services induce companies to hire. 9/29/2013
