I would think that I produce a positive image with clientel at my office. I am one of the first people seen and keeping the atmosphere light and easy makes clients time here much easier. By doing this positive feedback and thereby word of mouth help give us a positive reference when and it a friend or family of a current client needs us. In the end my job and others are preserved and we are able to expand our services to new areas. This is as good as I can describe a Capitalistic attitude for me.

cap·i·tal·ist

1. A supporter of capitalism.
2. An investor of capital in business, especially one having a major financial interest in an important enterprise.
3. A person of great wealth.

You make the mistake of assuming that one who is a "Capitalist" actually produces anything.


No, I do not make such a mistake. However, you're pointing out these three definitions greatly advances the purpose of this thread. And I do not accept any of these definitions except perhaps 2. The investor may not be the producer, but the investor may fund the producer/inventor.

(Just like I do not accept the Supreme Court ruling that "Corporations are people.")

Blooming "capitalist"...I suppose you intend to use the divi from your
shares to support your retirement so that your not state dependent on support.
Giving you a sense of independents that allows you to sleep peacefully at night
knowing that along with your rightfully state and company pensions your not
going to be a drag on society or your family. How dare you maintain this
independence through thoughtful planning of your finances all those years ago.
Other than this, "got any good share tips" Chris.......
