I’ve always wondered.
Economics being a phenomenon that is inexplicable (though that hasn’t stopped anyone) is scientific enough, maybe. Agreed upon mayhem, mass delusion, yet still somehow functions.
But the distance from actual on the ground production and trading of goods is so great when sitting in the corner office looking at the view punching keys and making calls that the question arises.
What does business do?
This question makes me curious enough to want to delve deeper even though obviously the corner office guys are managers and or speculators so the answer seems simple enough. However, there are entire high rise buildings full of these business folks all producing absolutely nothing while pulling down a salary and contributing to the mass delusion that is our economy.
I’ll get back to you.
