    Interstingly, george lakoff tried to start a business to counter conservative "framing". But the dems just wanted to construct frames of their own. Its an interesting subject and imo one of the most important things our society is paying NO attention to.

    I use "production" in the context of that thread to refer to intentional efforts leading to a new useful arrangement of materials (including understanding).

    It helps to be specific in order to see the contrast:

    If I hold x shares in a company, the employees of which produce milk from inputs of grass, cows, etc., then no matter how frequently or in what number I trade shares of the company, my trades will never ever produce even a single ounce of milk. The trades don't assemble any machines or process any milk...don't package any of it in cartons or move any of it out to the stores. Due to political contingencies, my trades may lead to me expecting to receive more vs. less of the financial returns from the milk production, but absolutely none of my trades will ever contribute anything at all to the actual production of said milk.

    Hope that clears up the sense in which I use "produce."
