Person 1: I have an excess of money, but no way to produce a product I have an idea for

Person 2: I have time and skills that you need to produce that product, but no money

Person 1: What if I gave you a certain amount of my money in return for a certain amount of labor at a rate that we both agree upon?

Person 2: That sounds great. With this arrangement, we’ll both be better off with each of us getting what we need

Person 1: Just to be clear, this is a totally voluntary exchange and you’re not being robbed of the product of your labor or anything right?

Person 2: Not at all. A trade of labor for wages will make us both richer and create wealth
