The poor, the producers and the parasites

I'll come back to this article one day I hope, but in light of my earlier post that created a political division, I'll state that there are 3 economic categories, rather than a false dichotomy of "producers" and everyone else.

  • the poor - in my book, the poor are always potential producers, usually poor through historical inequality.
  • the producers - the engine of an economy and the providers for the others
  • the parasites
And, you could add a fourth category for the retired, which is quite simply the pensioners.
