    If money did reflect production perfectly it would be slightly better, though still not totally fair. The fact is a great many jobs aren't productive (just about anything in the financial sector, for example), and those that are the best compensated are often far less productive in material and societal terms than the worst paying jobs: floors need to be scrubbed, rubbish needs to be collected, but how does the world benefit from hedge-funds?
    NFs are nothing special. They're mostly just average people with average views. You won't get very far looking here.

    Wasn't looking for intense debate or allies, Chunes. Guess I just expected a bit more discussion because my views are pretty strong on this subject. Sorry if I sounded sarky, if you need me I'll be in the channels..

    Definitely not. Consumption depletes the supply.

    Had to return to link this: A Bit Rich | the new economics foundation

    Interesting report on the relative social value of different jobs, Radio 4 just reminded me of it.

    Based on his comment, I thought he was talking about using your own money to make more money so that you could consume without producing. If you are doing this, your money is producing for you.

    If you are just spending money you previously saved, then you just shifted your consumption to another period of time.

    Ocean-bound ones. The details are somewhat sketchy at the moment, but the basic idea is laid down.
