This is kind of a skeletal outline for some sort of possible future blog post.
Value creation – necessities: food, clothing, shelter
Value creation – in-between necessity and luxury (automobiles)
Value creation – scalable luxury goods (movies, televisions to watch them on)
Supply chain – transportation, wholesale, retail
Value transference – finance, marketing
Labor-intensive luxuries – food services, other personal services
Helping occupations – education, health care, social work
What do you think?
