Revised October 30, 2013
In this article we will be covering Producers, Non-producers and Counter-producers, with the purpose of bringing more understanding on how an Economic System functions. I will be introducing a new concept on the non-producer side of the Producer/ non-producer dichotomy. This new concept is the Counter-producer. The counter-producer thrusts his efforts in the opposite direction or in conflict with production and prosperity.
The Producers are the creators of the value, energy, wealth, capital and power the money symbol represents. The value, energy, wealth, capital and power are carried with the money unit after a product is exchanged for it on the Open Market. We have covered this process of converting produced value and energy into money units in earlier articles. Value is created through the production of goods and services. Energy is created and placed into the goods and services at the time of production. When the goods and services are marketed on the Open Market the produced value and energy are transferred to the money units. During the process of Marketing, wealth, capital and power are also brought into existence. They are also represented by the money unit symbol. All of these, the value, energy, wealth, capital and power can be measured and defined in terms of money units. This is how an Economics System comes into existence and continues to thrive and prosper into the future.
The Producers create the Economic System and maintain its prosperity and growth. If all we had existing in an Economic System were Producers, we would have a very healthy thriving Economic System. We would have individual Producers, families, organizations, societies, nations, mankind and environments prospering and thriving. This is the Ideal State for an Economic System. This is a goal and a target, in which to strive for, in creating a prosperous Economic System.
However, the ideal state is seldom achieved but always must be sought after. This Ideal State can be very closely achieved but not at a 100 percent level. We must maintain the axioms of economics and strive to reach this ideal state. Along the way we will have a very thriving Economic System. It is when we fail to maintain the axioms of economics and stop striving for the Ideal State that the Economic System slides into a recession. An Economic System starts to fail or slide into a recession the moment the Producers stop striving for the Ideal State of an Economic System.
Producers lose their focus on the Ideal Economic State when they agree with becoming non-producers and counter-producers. Producers loose their focus when they agree to have or allow non-producers and counter-producers to take money without an equal amount of production exchanged for the money. Producers also go off focus when they agree to accept counter-producer destructive creations in the Market where they can be exchanged for money units.
The Ideal State for an Economic System is: When we have Producers and only Producers operating in the economic system creating money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power then we have the Ideal State for an Economic System.
As soon as we stop striving for and focusing on the Ideal State for an Economic System, the non-producers and counter-producers start to pull the Economic System into a recession. The numbers of non-producers and counter-producers start increasing in numbers in proportion to Producers. If we don’t hold this Ideal State as a goal, the counter forces against this Ideal State will overtake the Producers and reverse economic growth and expansion. These counter forces work 24/7 at reversing economic growth and expansion.
There are two counter forces at work here. The first one is the non-producer. The second one is the counter-producer. Both the non-producer and the counter-producer exert forces against the Ideal State for an Economic System. They are both non-producers but the counter-producer actively engages in destructive counter-production activity in exchange for his money.
The non-producer creates no, or not enough production for the money received. The non-producer pulls in small quantities of money to large quantities of money and at times very large quantities of money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power without enough or no exchange, at all, for it. We find farmers on welfare, corporations on welfare, monopolists on welfare, speculator bankers on welfare and the poor on welfare. We also find speculators, who don’t use speculation to further production but speculate to take wealth with no production in exchange for it, are also on welfare. These rewarded non-producers take money with no or not enough production in exchange for the money they receive. Bankers who expand the money supply are the counter-producer money supply expanders in this rewarded non-producer/counter-producer classification.
The money supply expanders literally steal the value, energy, wealth, capital and power out of the money you presently have in your pocket, your bank account and in your assets. They steal the value, energy, wealth, capital and power during the process of expanding the money supply. They aren’t placing production on the Market for the money they are removing while printing more money. So, your money value, energy, wealth, capital and power are transferred to the money expanders. The money in your pocket, in your bank and in your assets loses value, energy and power. The money supply expanders are non-producers and counter-producers. They are rewarded counter-producers. By expanding the money supply the money supply expanders are stealing energy from the Producers. They are stealing money value from the Producers. They are stealing wealth from the Producers. They are stealing capital from the Producers. They are also stealing power from the Producers. They are countering and thrusting against the prosperity of the Producers, families, organizations, societies, nations, mankind and environments.
The non-producers take more money out of the Market than they put exchange back in. They take money from the Market with no or not enough exchange for it. Some non-producers create monopolies. They dominate the supply of a particular commodity, trade, good or service and create an artificial shortage. They create an artificial shortage with the purpose of causing the demand to rise on a specific commodity, trade, good or service. This increased demand increases the price of the commodity, trade, good or service on the Market. In this case they are receiving more money units than product placed on the Market while exchanging product for money units.
The second counter force at work in destroying economic growth and expansion is the Counter-producer. Counter is the opposite direction to or in conflict with. The counter-producer creates commodities, trades, goods and services that are in opposite direction to or are in conflict with prosperity. This harms the prosperity of the Producer, family, organization, society, nation, mankind and environments. The counter-producers’ goods and services are not classified as products. The rewarded counter-producers’ commodities, trades, goods and services are destructive to the prosperity of the Producer, family, organization, society, nation, mankind and environments. The counter-producers’ counter production is harmful to the greatest good for the largest number of people. The rewarded counter-producer receives money in exchange for the destruction he is doing to the Producer, organization, society, nation, mankind and environments. The counter-producer is actively destroying Producers, production facilities and Economic Systems. While he passes off this destructive activity as production. He receives money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power for this destructive activity.
The counter-producers may appear to be and in many cases are very hard workers but their production falls short of the definition of a Product. Their production is harmful to the prosperity of the greatest good for the greatest numbers. These people work daily creating counter-survival commodities, trades, goods and services. These counter-survival commodities, trades, goods and services are destructive to the prosperity of the Producers. They not only suck money, energy, wealth, capital and power from the society with a destructive exchange but their “production” harms the Producers and all life on Earth.
The counter-producers’ counter-survival creations cause lower production levels for the Producers. This destructive production also converts Producers into non-producers. Producers lose jobs during recessions, depressions and wars caused by the rewarded destruction of the counter-producers. Producers get ill from using and being in the environment of the destructive creations passed off as products by counter-producers. Producers lose their ability to produce from lost jobs, ill health and upset in the work environment. Death may result from the effects of counter-producer destructive creations. Destructive production causes numbers of non-producers and counter-producers to get larger.
Destructive production created by counter-producers is never a good sign in a society. In a healthy, Producer Rewarded Open Market Economic System there will always be far more production jobs available then producing individuals to fill them. The only people not working and producing will be the most unable physically, mentally or spiritually. The numbers of non-producers will be so low that their counter productive impact on the Producing society will be very minimal. Charity will be able to handle them. There will be no welfare for the rich or the poor because it will not be needed. There should be no counter production or counter-producers present.
Examples of counter-producers and counter production are illegal drug trade, over-consumption of alcohol, over prescribed prescription drugs, most if not all Psycho-tropic drugs, excess national defense, crime, tobacco products, any directed effort in anyway used to block or restrict production competition such as monopolies and using destructive lies, deception and propaganda.
In Producer Rewarded Open Market Economics we can spot counter production creations and activities once thought of as products. This counter production is in conflict with or going in the opposite direction to prosperity.
Producer Rewarded Open Market Economics, in its fullest definition, is a science of the prosperity of the individuals, family, organizations, societies, nations, mankind and environments. Anything that is in conflict with prosperity or going in the opposite direction opposed to prosperity is counter production.
In Producer Reward Open Marker Economics we find the Producer thrusting toward prosperity. We find the non-producer being dead weight pulling down the prosperity potential of all Producers and non-producers. We find the counter-producer engaged in direct conflict with and going in the opposite direction from prosperity. The counter-producer attacks prosperity, covertly or overtly.
In the current economic system on Earth we find the non-producers and the counter-producers being allowed to participate in the economic system, the Market and the Money Supply. Then we wonder why the economic system keeps failing. We are allowing counter-producers to dominate it and destroy it!
The counter-producers are allowed to dominate the Market and the Money Supply. The Producers, on the backs of which all prosperity rests, are carrying the whole load of prosperity along with the non-producers and the destruction of the counter-producers. The counter-producers are opposing the Producers at every step of the way.
With this data we, the Producers, can step up and be proud and take control of the Economic system we create despite the counter production of the counter- producers and the dead weight of the non-producers.
There are working Producers creating prosperity. There are working counter-producers creating destruction and countering prosperity. There are non-producers, not working, sucking the energy out of the Economic System.
The Producers create money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power.
The non-producers suck the money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power out of the Economic System. They accomplish this by taking money without exchanging commodities, trades, goods or services for it.
The counter-producers suck the money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power out of the Economic System. They accomplish this by creating destructive products that harm the Producers, families, organizations, societies, nations, mankind, and environments.
I will end off by leaving you with an exercise. Go out and see if you can use the following data to identify the Super Producers, Producers, non-producers and counter-producers in your company or society?
Remember, the Super Producer holds the company together despite all the counter efforts put forth by the non-producers and counter-producers. At this time the Super Producer usually producers far more than he receives in money units exchanged for his production.
The Producer is pulling his weight; he is in full exchange with production for money.
The non-producer is out exchange. He is the under producer or the under achiever. He is receiving more money than he is creating in production.
The overt (easily spotted) counter-producer is another matter. He is the guy who stops production, he confuses up for down, left for right, he gets hurt a lot, he is in accidents, destroys company property, uses drugs and excess alcohol, has unusual sex practices, gets into arguments frequently. He has more than normal health problems. He looks for ways to find fault. He has to be watched continuously. He is destructive to the company and the staff. He upsets the staff and the public. This is the overt counter-producer. He creates a hostile and stressful environment. He tends to be over the top in his criticizing. He will alter and exaggerate, too the negative, the information that needs to be passed on. He is confused with priorities. He reverses priorities, taking a lower or the lowest priority first.
There is also the covert (hidden) counter-producer. He is much harder to detect. There are clues you can follow. He will us drugs, excess alcohol and has unusual sex practices. He has more then normal health problems. He excels in giving confusing orders. He will give orders and an hour later will change the whole line up. He makes a lot of confusion for the staff. He quietly creates a stressful environment. He appears to be nice and friendly but will covertly stab you in the back. He criticizes in a sort of smooth and complementary way. He will tell the producer how good he is and not promote him. He will promote a fellow counter-producer instead. He will alter information that needs to be passed on. He is confused with priorities. He will surround himself with overt counter-producers.
Here you go. I hope this helps bring about a better understanding of the Economic System.

Revised November 17, 2013
In the previous article we started to deal with the Capital Destroying Class of Capitalism. We discussed the fact, earlier, that there are two classifications of Capitalism. There is the prosperity creating classification and there is the prosperity destroying classification. The prosperity creating classification is Capital Producing Economics. Producer Rewarded Open Market Economics is a Capital Producing Economics System. Capital Producing Capitalism is a Capital Producing Economics System.
The prosperity destroying classification is Capital Destroying Economics. Capital Destroying Capitalism is in the Capital Destroying Economic System. Communism and Fascism are also in the Capital Destroying Economic System.
Capital as used in economics means; the amount of money or property that a company or a person uses in carrying on a business. Capital also means; national or individual wealth as produced by industry and available for reinvestment in the production of goods.
Destroy or destroying means: 1. to break to pieces; make useless; spoil; ruin: 2. to put and end to; do away with. Destroy means: to make useless by breaking to pieces, taking apart, killing, or in any other of many ways.
When non-producers and counter-producers take money without an exchange for it they cause the value, energy, wealth and power in money to be less. Money loses purchasing power when non-producers and counter-producers take it without an exchange, of an equal production value, for the money. Rewarding non-producers and counter-producers causes money to have less value and energy per money unit; they spoil and ruin the value and energy in money. When Banks expand the money supply, they cause money to have less value and energy per money unit. They spoil and ruin the value and energy money possesses.
The Capital Destroying Economic system is predominantly being used, today, on planet earth. This system of Economics causes wild fluctuations between prosperity, recessions and depressions in the field of Economics. Much confusion is caused when attempting to produce prosperity using Capital Destroying Economics. It is a covertly destructive and chaotic system of economics. Anytime prosperity is achieved, the Capital Destroying Economic system eventually goes into a self-destruct mode and collapses the economic prosperity.
This economic collapse is brought about by allowing non-producers and counter-producers into the Marketing system. It is caused by allowing non-producers and counter-producers into the Money Supply. This economic collapse is caused by believing we should allow rich and powerful people to take money without an exchange or not enough exchange for it. An economic collapse is also brought about by believing we need people in the emotional states of chronic anger, hostility and covert hostility running our Companies, Corporations and Political Systems. On the Planet today, people of the emotional states of chronic anger, hostility and covert hostility are mistaken for sane and able people. After all, they appear to “know,” with such “force and/or smoothness!” They appear to know what they are doing and they appear to be “right!”
People in the emotional states of chronic anger, hostility and covert hostility are destructive. They, because of their negative emotional state, are non-producers and counter-producers. Their product is the destruction of the companies they work for and the countries they run politically. They are destroyers of Capital! They hire and promote people of their own emotional state; chronic anger, hostility and covert hostility. The companies, corporations and nations that do prosper, prosper despite the counter-efforts of the leaders in the emotional states of chronic anger, hostility and covert hostility.
They prosper because they have a few Super Producers working in key positions in the Organizations. These Super Producers make production happen despite anything. They are very able individuals; they don’t let the destructive leaders destroy the Organization. They produce and produce and find ways to get around the counter-efforts of the destructive non-producing and counter-producing leaders. Usually they get promoted to a certain level and don’t get promoted any farther even though they carry the Organization on their backs. The destructive non-producers and counter-producers leading the Organizations; believe it is leading by anger and hostility that is causing the success of the Organization. When the Super Producers leave the Organization, the Organization collapses. The destructive non-producing and counter-producing leaders can’t understand what caused the collapse. They are usually clueless because they live off the back of the Super Producer. They are unaware the Super Producer was the key to the organizations success. The destructive non-producers and counter-producers have their attention on destructive activities. They don’t notice constructive activities in progress.
You can spot the chronically angry, hostile and covertly hostile person (leader or worker) by observing how they communicate and by what they do in their activities. They communicate in general terms. They are very often out sequence and non-sequitur in their discussions. They can be very literal in their interpretation of a piece of communication. They can be found involved in excessive alcohol and drug use. They can be found to be involved in unusual sex practices, such as with prostitutes and with many partners. The Producer and Super Producer will overlook and compensate for the faults of the chronically destructive leader and worker. Meanwhile the company, corporation or nation suffers and follows an economic decline as money, value, energy, wealth, capital and power is destroyed. The destructive leaders destroy prosperity.
In many Organizations on Planet Earth; when you find the Organization prosperous, you will find a few Super Producers holding it up despite all the counter-efforts of the destructive leaders and workers in the Organization. In many Organizations on Planet Earth you will find a Super Producing Leader maintaining a high prosperity level despite the counter-efforts of some destructive non-producing and counter-producing workers inside the Organization.
Steve Jobs is an example of a Super Producing Leader. The Board of Directors of Apple fired him. The company almost died. He came back and brought it back to prosperity. When you find an Organization being led by Super Producers, the Organization is usually doing very well. The trick is to get all positions in an Organization filled with Producers or Super Producers.
Over many, many years, Capital Destroying Economics has brought about much suffering and hardship for many people, organizations, families, societies and Nations. Capital Destroying Economics in its basic form rewards non-production and counter-produces. It provides for the concentration of wealth along with the power derived from wealth to be placed into the hands of a small group of non-producers and counter-producers. These non-producers and counter-producers have not created products that can be exchanged on the Open Market for the wealth.
Capital Destroying Economics provides for the transference of wealth, created by the Producers and Super Producers in an Organization. The wealth is transferred from the Producers and Super Producers into the hands of the chronically destructive leaders of an Organization. Wealth is also transferred from the Producers and Super Producers into the hands of all other non-producers and counter-producers existing in an Organization.
The concentration of Capital into the hands of a few non-producers and counter-producers has given them tremendous power. They have used this power to take over the political system. With these political systems, Communism, Fascism, Right Wingism and even Left Wingism, they establish laws that create a legal structure they use to funnel much of the Capital created by Producers into their hands.
Production is the action of doing and converting energy into a product. Marketing is the action of exchanging products for products among Producers. This is basic Marketing; exchanging products for products. Barter is exchanging products for products. In more advanced Marketing, Products are exchanged for money units. When products are exchanged for money units, money units are being used as a medium to transport value from the product. We take this one step further; we say money is also a symbol in which the energy generated to create products is transported to the money unit during Marketing.
The energy used to create the products continues to flow in a society as long as products are “always” exchanged for money units. More and more energy is being created and added to the Open Market. As this energy level grows we see money velocity increase. This increase in money velocity means money is changing hands more rapidly in the society. This energy can be felt when a society achieves prosperity. The individuals and the society are much more alive and vibrant. Non-producing and counter-producing Capital destroyers don’t like this high energy level. Producers love this high energy level, they revel in it!
When money is taken from the Market with no exchange in production, energy is being removed from the Market. When this energy is removed from the Market it gets destroyed disappears or vanishes. The money units, that are the symbols for this energy, lose value. This is where money (Capital) gets destroyed. Money velocity slows. Money value and the amount of energy in each money unit decreases. A recession starts, if ever so slightly. With the out-exchange increasing, more and more money value or money energy (Capital) gets destroyed. Money loses value and energy causing money velocity to slow. Money value and energy, as Capital, is being destroyed. All other forms of Capital start to lose value. What we are describing here is a state of Capital Destruction.
Banks expanding the money supply, speculators who exchange nothing for the huge sums of money they take are huge destroyers of Capital. Excessive military spending and wars are huge destroyers of Capital. Any out-exchange activity is a destroyer of Capital. Monopolies are destroyers of Capital. Many of the most ardent advocators of Capitalism practice Capital Destroying Economics. They are engaged, in a big way, in the destruction of Capital.
You ask, “Why is Capital Destroying Economics so destructive?” Capital Destroying Economics destroys prosperity, it eats up wealth and Capital, it consumes prosperity until a society literally dies and if it doesn’t totally die out it causes tremendous hardship and suffering.
Examples of Capital Destroying Economics at work can be found around the world and throughout history. Almost all wars are the result of Capital Destroying Economics at work. The depressed conditions of Third World Nations are traced to practices of Capital Destroying Economics. The current Great Recession of 2008 is the result of Capital Destroying Economics being practiced. Communism is a Capital Destroying Economic System developed as a solution to past practices of Capital Destroying Economics. Communism came into existence as an answer to Capital Destroying Capitalism. Desperate people under the rule of the Capital Destroying class of Capitalism agreed to accept Communism. They had two choices, death or Communism. They chose Communism which wasn’t any better than Capital Destroying Capitalism. They are still mired in a Capital Destroying Economic system. Communism is a Capital Destroying Economic System. They went from one Capital Destroying Economic System into another Capital Destroying Economic System.
Now that we have seen the consequences of Capital Destroying Economics we can see why we need to insist on working toward a pure Capital Producing Economic System. It is self evident that Capital Destroying Economics slows money velocity and destroys Capital. It also is self evident that Capital Producing Economics, Producer Rewarded Open Market Economics, increases money velocity, increases the value and energy in Capital and money and leads to abundant prosperity.
