A Business Needs More

When I re-read my last post it occurred to me to touch on the concept of MORE. I ended the last post with the idea that a business must consume ever more resources to make ever larger profits and is not satisfied with a steady line.

Some would argue that a business must always demand more because the cost of materials always only increase.

Yet, this is exactly the problem. A mining company wants MORE, the raw materials foundry wants MORE, the materials fabricators want MORE, the assembly shops want MORE, the shipping companies want MORE...

When one company demands more, it affects all other companies and their workforces.

If a company were to draw a line and say, "We are satisfied with our current profit margin and will only ask for more if needed."

Unfortunately the shareholders always say "Yes, MORE is needed."
