This post was first published in May but the message is important enough to repeat, like a drum beat, as often as necessary, between now and November, so that as many people as possible get the point.
==?Jobs are created and sustained by customers, not investors.
Nick Hanauer is rich. Here is the Wikipedia link.
He's what is called a VC, venture capitalist. Those are people who invest their own money in other people's ventures for the purpose of making more money for themselves. He was at the right place at the right time with the right products when Amazon took off. Readers can do their own homework.
As a venture capitalist this guy has probably forgotten more about making money and creating jobs than most political types ever figure out.
