If you give money to rich people, they will hold onto it because it has no meaning for them. They hoard it, they put it in their bank to make more money because it’s a number to them- it’s a status symbol.
If you give money to poor people, they spend it. They put it back into the economy in one way or another. They have bills to pay. A person who couldn’t afford food last week can afford food this week.
The two are fundamentally not the same.
And I don’t care if not caring about investors or company owners makes me sound callous. I’d like to see them work my job for a day on the pay that I make and see how long it takes them to get fed up. They have less to lose from a company going under than I do from slowly circling the drain.
The lives of human workers are more important than people’s portfolios.
