A rich person's income increases according to how many jobs he creates. "Creating a Job" consists of finding a boob who accepts $1,000 for increasing your own wealth by $2,000.

Unrelated and applicable only in anecdotal exceptions. In general, each job in the US creates wealth for the employer, in excess of the income that is returned to the workers. Very few corporations actually lose money, and if their balance sheet shows no profits, it is because the money they have made has been ineinvested into infrastructure or something, which increases corprote wealth.

Well that is pure hysterical speculation, and you avoided the actual question.

we are running out of rooms.
Keep in mind that only a fraction of the 197 million square miles of land can support human life. Not many people can live above the Arctic Circle, or in the middle of the Sahara desert. This stresses our poor planet's ability to support WAY TOO MANY FRIGGIN' people even more.

This is one reason (of several) why I am blissfully childfree.
