    You are naive if you think that the majority of demmand is not artificially created through making sure that celebs wear certain clothes or use certain things, and by utilizing psychiatrists to get the strongest "gotta have it" response to the advertising.

    Of course you can get people to work for you, don't create new jobs and those who work for you cannot ask for a raise because there is no where else to go if you do not give one.

    I couldn't sell a vacuum tube no matter how many celebrities I buy off and how great me advertising is.

    Of course there is capital needed, but many times banks front the money or the government, that evil entity gives grants to start the businesses! How dare they!

    I suppose if you weren't such a stand up, morally straight kinda guy, you'd already be raking in millions right now with this knowledge. Of course, you probably just turn your millions in profits over to your employees. After all, they're the ones doing all the work while you're posting on debate politics.

    Sure you could, make vintage amps for guitars and pay a rockstar to use it, then kids in garage bands will buy them too.

    So now Apple, Dell, eMachines, Compaq, Toshiba, are all monopolies in the same field? Interesting.

    Those at least have an asthetic value. No one really values vacuum tubes.
