The masses are in charge of the economy

The masses are in charge of the economy
The state of an economy depends on the masses and not the government as the government usually make rules but its the masses that have the final say. And, in today's world it would be good to note that most crisis occur as a result of the belief that the economy is controlled by the government. The majority always carries the vote so only they actually control state of the economy. Agree or disagree?



I agree

The masses are in charge of the economy of any country because it is a country's labour and work force, the masses determine the worth of a country because if a country cannot have enough production and sales it will reduce feed and a the standard of living will decrease. The masses may be told what to produce by people in power but they cannot be force to produce it, if can be seems or noticed how when there is an increase in unemployment in any country they is an inflation but when employment is night it increase both government earning and country's wealth.

Yes I totally agree

The good and the bad of any economy is dependent on its masses, be it the rich or poor masses they are the ones their actions and reactions would definitely determine the nature of any state economy.

So therefore, I to totally agree that the masses are in charge of the economy of any state. They are the ones that buy stuffs, demand goods and services and pay for them, which gives money to the government and the economy as well. If they don't invest in the economy, it's definitely going to mar the success of such economy.

The wealthy are.

I wouldn't say the masses are in control but the wealthy are, who also have a large (if not total) control on the government. The wealthy are the ones dictating what the "masses" want and buy (whether you know/realize it or not).

I strongly agree with you, I took my time to considered the market structure and I realized that if you really want the best , you need cash. The best was always reserved for the rich, sellers gave more attention to them, and from my observation from a governmental visit I found out that people couldnt express the wrongs they are suffering from. They just praised the government more than they deserved.


The world is experiencing a tide when it comes to governance, in the middle east the level of violence there is insinuated by the rich, the poor don't have much of a choice, and the rich constitute to a large degree those who are the government. The level of peace , tranquility, turbulence experience in such places is as a result of those in authority and not the minority. Majority of the crisis are sponsored to satisfy the lust of very few who are privilege to be in power. If the masses actually had the power they wished for ,then the world would have been a better place, because majority want peace, a few won't let it be. In Europe it is believed that the votes count, but the influence of wealth and people in governance infiltrate the system a turn things in favor of those who are already in authority, so the game end up leaving the whole discissions in the hand of the government. The economy is controlled by power and wealth and it turns out we have those who fit perfectly between the two in government, so the economy can imaginarily be in the hands of the masses but practically in the hands of the government.

The mass generates money, however, the mass does not control the economy. Let me illustrate this. Who generates income for a company, yes the workers, who controls the money, yes, the boss.

I agree with you that it is solely dependent on the masses to get things working in the economy. I mean I always look and smile when some government officials claim to be in control of the economy. If the people decide to boycott economic plans of the government, there is nothing the government can do make these policies work, so power is truly in the people to effects changes in the economy.

The masses are not in charge of the economy. If that were so, many countries would have attained progress just because the masses of people exist. Instead, it is the economic policies of the government that will likely control the direction of a country's economy. Bear in mind that the masses won't have the money and purchasing power if they are not deriving income from an employment or a business. In other words, the masses are dependent on the economy, and not otherwise. A government that adopts an isolationist stand, for instance, will likely find its citizens massively unemployed and requiring support to live.

I have to agree with this even if I am not an economist. The masses comprise the dominant number in society which gives them the power of consumption. Let’s say the masses will not patronize a product then that product’s manufacturer may go bankrupt. I am talking of ordinary merchandise though for the rich has the power of consumption for quality and signature brands of products. Maybe we can say that the masses are not exactly in charge but maybe the better description is they have the strongest influence.

Yes i think the masses are in charge of the economy since it is them that do most of the buying and selling and if they decide to go on strike for a week it will affect the economy of the whole country.
