I get the impression that the vast majority of people posting on this site as to what needs to be done with the "evil rich and wealthy" and how everything should be on an "equal playing field" when it comes to business operations and the wealth generated, have never been involved in either starting up a business or managing/operating a business on a day to day basis.
I say this because a lot of what is posted on this site is just plain stupid when it comes to what a business should do or not do. Some of what is posted is off the wall, and very little of what is posted has any true credibility.
So I am posing this question because I doubt that 99% of you who have contempt for businesses have ever been involved in owning a business or managing a business, let alone putting up money to start up a business.
Now, I am not interested in listening to you rant and rave about how business have taken jobs out of this country, or how businesses don't pay a fair wage or give employees a share of the profits - we've been there and done that.
I am just curious to know and I am sure a lot of other people would like to know how many of you actually have "business experience credentials" that would give you any kind of credibility in knowning what business is all about.
