Why So Many Jobs Incentives
When the market wants something with this economic system, hire someone to do it. There is no worry about money and how much a new worker, a new project, a new program, or a new process will cost.
The problem will eventually come to actually find someone to hire.
Hire program managers to create programs. The program managers hire project managers to create projects according to the scope of the program. Project managers hire executive staff for logistics, human resources, and all other executive administrative functions. The administrators hire the lower echelon workers.
Need more nurses? Hire and train some. Need more engineers? Hire and train some. Need more low-skilled workers? Hire some. Need more workers of any skill level, trade, or profession? Hire and train some.
Another way to look at it:
As describe by First Month on my site, I expect people are greedy and will completely bare the store shelves. Stores will send huge orders for products.
Now, I admit a weakness and lets be cynical (and a little absurd sarcasm).
Sales departments dont care about large volume of sales orders because without profit theres no reason or incentive, cynically, to increase production and hire, expand, etc., none.
But then, Im a manager of a government program and receive tripling increases in work. Why create new government jobs with no profit incentive? My pay wont increase if I hire someone to do this work nor do I care about its completion. My pay wont increase if I personally do this work, either. Ive no incentive to care whether this work is completed.
Im a production manager and see these orders. I dont care because I dont own the company and without profit theres no reason or incentive, cynically, to increase production and hire, expand, etc., none. My pay wont increase if I hire someone to do this work nor do I care about its completion. My pay wont increase if I personally do this work, either. Ive no incentive to care whether this work is completed.
Incentive? I dont pay for water in my apartment. So, I dont care if I EVER shut off water flow in my bath tub or sinks! I dont care! I dont pay for it!
Really? (Absurd, cynical sarcasm, here)
The operation of a business, in the system and really, in the present money-rationing market system, is to provide for the customer. "Pull" orders increase demand, then commands expansion, & a decrease commands idling or liquidation of unused resources. Intraprenuers and entrepreneurs see niches and exploit them. The gift and promise of this system is that if a venture fails, the entrepreneurs arent financially ruined. The cost, is a nick in the aggregate economy; everyone pays an opportunity cost. Then capital is acquired by others and used.
In summary, businesses operate to meet customers wants. Also, socialist programs are created and expanded to provide services for people - serve the customers.
In the system, it makes no difference whether its government, NGO, or entrepreneurial. Let it to be entrepreneurial - less bureaucracy that emphasized "lean" or streamlined management.
Some of you are entrepreneurs, including myself. Why do you do it? Is it because of greed to make billions in 10 years and sell it all off and never work again? Are you working 20 hours a day so you can loaf? I dont think so. Im an entrepreneur because I LOVE WHAT I DO! I also want to live a little better - make a living. The money alone isnt enough and isnt for me. What about you?
