Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
but we aren't a society that put our heads together and collectively decided to pay anyone a wage, living or otherwise. The market did that and, though we may be able to jockey around a bit with it, we may be able to take from earners from the open market and pay for non-participants, it won't be until markets decide that this is economic good sense (and to some extent they are deciding that) that one should expect business to do so. To force them to do so takes away the base of productivity upon which all depend.
