1. People don't hire people to create jobs, they hire people to do jobs.
2. The method through which economic opportunity and job creation occurs is complicated and involves many many people, not just the person who starts or owns or runs a business.
3. Entrepreneurship is not charity, it is only a public good if the business does good work and treats it's employees fairly.
4. None of this is to say that business people aren't totally dope and don't work very hard at stressful jobs that need to be done. I'm just happy with that role being defined by more accurate terms like CEO or entrepreneur or small business owner.
I dunno...all of this stuff is complicated, but I am wary of stories with one hero. One thing I can say for sure...the people who support SciShow and Crash Course on Patreon are job creators if anyone is...so thanks to everyone who does that.
