Professionals - goods or services

Posted on: April 7, 2009 12:16 pm
 

 

I am curious how many men have transacted the goods and services of a professional. What were the reasons? Basic need met without the entanglement of relationship building or copious drinks into the late hours at the bar. Perhaps there was a thrill seeking energy rush of doing something both illegal and socially taboo. Maybe it was a dare from a peer or even the ritual deflowering of the male into stallionhood.

No prude am I gents. I am not judging, just curious. I have never needed to transact pleasure in the simplest terms of cash for act.

So you may be wondering why I care about the goods and services of a professional. Seems an odd question. The answer is I want to understand the many avenues of the goods and service industries. To be clear there are goods producing industries and there are service providing industries. The goods on a professional are limited to what she is born with or can have surgically enhanced. She cannot produce more goods than herself so this is not a growth industry in that sense. As a service provider she is only limited by time how much growth she can provide to the industry - pun intended. So which industry is more important - the goods or the service? One could argue both are important. Without the goods the service is rather empty. Without the desire to perform the service, the goods are not worth as much. So what is the correct ratio of goods to service?

If we have 100% goods and 0% service we have a beauty pagent but little else. If you have 0% goods and 100% services you have something closer to virtual sex or imaginary like the proverbial damp dream. I imagine you should have roughly 40% goods and 60% services in an economy. Seems like a good mix. Pretty package with reasonable appointments and larger willingness to transact.

In 1945 the United States economy was 42% goods producers and 58% service industry. In 2007 the economy was comprised of 15% goods producers and 85% service providers. Steadily we continue to move our manufacturing offshore and replace those jobs with service jobs that pay less. How much longer do we drive in this direction until we become a virtual economy, a wet dream where nothing is produced of any value?  Maybe the Obamanator will consider this fact as he continues down the path of killing off the manufacturing sector with Cap and Trade and other draconian measures designed to make the US a Utopia where you don't have to work, don't have to pay your bills, everything is shiny and clean and everything is provided for you.....sorry, I got a little witchy there at the end.

Just a question.

Happy Tuesday.  Man I dislike the Tarheels, but congrats anyway.

Professionals - goods or services

 

As it turns out I still have it:

Well, we are asking some personal and incriminating questions here aren't we.  This is a more complicated question than one would think.  There are prostitutes, and then there are prostitutes.  Aside from you stereotyped, street walker/call girl, there exists another class of prostitute.  Ones that are high priced, educated, intelligent, and offer more services than a roll in the hay.  These are true professional escorts.  Professional in every sense of the word, they understand their role, read up on whatever knowledge may be required of them, and do the job requested of them.  They offer a service for times when such a companion is desirable, without any attachment.   A service that goes beyond the simple physical act, but certainly includes such acts.  Is there a market for such a profession.  You bet.

Now, as to the have or haven't and what people would employ such an individual.  There is an obvious demand, otherwise there would be no supply.  What kind of person would.  We see it everyday reported in the news.  From common Johns on the street busts, to professional athletes, politicians, top lawyers, business execs.  Many of the elite of society. 

As for the larger question, manufacturing is currently dead in the U.S., and will remain so as long as the current system is in place.  The American working class used to have one parent, usually the male, work a manufacturing job, and with it support the family, own a car and a home.  No longer.  Today, that same family needs to see the spouse work at least part time.  When you break down the budget, that entire second salary goes entirely to the collection of the various taxes levied on the American family.  Our government has quite literally taxed the working class right out of existing.  Add the globalization Washington has pushed on us, and we see muscle jobs shipped over seas because foreign labor is far cheaper.  Americans have not lost labor, it was taken from us.  Americans have been forced into the service field because labor jobs have been shipped out or the salaries of which have been driven down to the point that they are no longer able to sustain a family.  Those Union Labor jobs that have hung on, have seen their respective field corrode to the point that the industry can no longer support the wages that once made these jobs desirable.
