Business

From the Nashville Tennessean paper of Feb 26, 2017.  In the business section, "People in 'business", page 3D. There is a list of business people in, I suppose, Nashville. There was banking and finance, commercial real estate, energy and enviroment, health care, insurance, law, engineering firms, residential real estate,retailing and technology.  To me, a retired pipefitter, these seemed to be service industries that swap money and value that was created when a product was made. In order to have a good healthy economy, doesn't there need to be someone in the business of manuacturing a product that creates value?

Nope, corporate greed did it. Anyway, democrats and unions built America from the ashes of the republican and Wal Street Great Depression.

Kind of fergetting about the Buddhist bucks and sleepovers in the Clinton administration and the demoncrap party buying votes by putting people in houses they couldn't afford ain't-cha! I might also note that Wall Streeters support dems:

How foreign cash made Bill and Hillary ‘filthy rich’

RICH: Hillary flies 20 miles in private jet from Martha’s Vineyard to Nantucket

Hillary Clinton is very important, and she can’t be bogged down by pesky things such as boats or waiting.

The presidential candidate, who is endlessly trying to tell factory workers in Ohio and Pennsylvania that she’s one of them, jetted approximately 20 miles from Martha’s Vineyard — where she was last night partying with President Obama — to Nantucket for a fundraiser on Saturday.

Gifted, Stanky and Best, the question was should a manufacturing business be creating value instead of service businesses swapping money and value and not creating value. Quit deflecting and trying to change the topic.

Then your previous statement makes no sense since there was no rebuilding of the manufacturing sector:

According to manufacturing employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since Mr. Obama took office in 2009, the U.S. has lost about 303,000 manufacturing jobs. I’m not sure how one even spins that into a positive.

From Stanky,

No, Obama, you presided over a loss of manufacturing jobs, and failed to deliver on exports

The liberal spin would be mobumer wanted to give to other
countries jobs that belonged to Americans, like he gave money
from American saving accounts to illegals. He didn't want to
be the president so much as it was very necessary to have the
office to cripple the country. If that isn't apparent to some of
you, explain the iran deal. If we as a country can't defend the
world from homicidal murdering maniac ragheads and other
trash like one world order liberal commies we all die.
O'Reilly keeps saying mobumer doesn't really want to hurt
this country, that's BS and he knows it.

Well I'm not a retired pipefitter, I do lay pipe though, I figured I
could make it fit later. Still not sure what your question is if it's
about value of a manufactured product, sure as hell someone will
want a given value of it and for it.

No you didn't. The post stated that there was a lot of "people in business", but all of them were in the service industry, none in manufacturing. My question was, don't someone need to be in the manufacturing business because that creates value. Services simply swaps value.

So you're saying making a hamburger and swapped for cash is
value, but a performance bond from an insurance agency is
the only way some manufacturing is allowed to work isn't of
any value..??  
Would it be like a hand shake or maybe a thank you ..??

Well theoretically, a pipefitter is a "service industry" as well.  You are not the one making the pipe or the fitting used.  You are providing a service by utilizing that pipe, much of which was probably made in a foreign factory, to provide plumbing.  Much in the way a med tech may use instruments in the lab to provide medical information, or an auditor may use figures and numbers provided to them to assist in management.  We are all "service sector" jobs when looked at in the base premise. Some require more training or education than others due to the task at hand.
