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.
