Because some rich person wants to help the needy?
Think again.

The Profit motive--pure and simple.

A person with money wants to increase that money.
They start a business.
They get the cheapest labor possible.
That is why there have to be incentives to hire Americans.

Most businesses are started because people want to be independent, to be free of bosses, masters of their own fate, in charge of their own destinies.

As the old saying goes, "If I have to work for idiots, I might as well be self-employed."

My point is that giving tax cuts to the rich as an incentive to create businesses is a political ploy.

in business school, the answer is to make a profit.

Trickle down economics is not the answer. Deregulation does not always work,
What works?

We must raise taxes. Medicare and Social security tax caps need to end.
Total wages need to be taxed. If a $25,000.00 a year employee can afford them, then why can't a $300,000.00 per year employee pay?

I think lots of businesses are created to help. That's where mine came from (and Shelagh - yay!). People who want to get away from their boss and think it's easier to do it on their own catch what Michael Gerber (author of the E-Myth) calls entrepreneurial flu or something like that - it seems like a great idea until they realize that they have to deal with most of the same things their bosses did.

I really like working for myself because I have control over so many things, and I am accountable to me, which I like. I do not make the world's greatest employee because I get really fed up with politics, fragmentation and frustration in corporate and academic work, and I tend to tell people (nicely of course, but they get told all the same). They don't like it much, but it's honest. Now that I am getting older I have a lot more latitude to pick and choose who I work with and I really like that too.

They need to raise taxes here to may for things too, although people will probably revolt. I can hardly stand how high our taxes are while corporation get away with paying next to nothing. Grrr. Now I've got started...
