25 Jobs That Wouldn’t Exist If People Were Actually Decent To Each Other

It seems a bit paradoxical, but a large part of our economy (a good thing) is built on the fact that we are quite poorly behaved towards one another as humans (a bad thing). Without getting too deep, it is probably worth pointing out that if we weren’t so nasty towards each other, there wouldn’t really be any need for an economy in the traditional sense of things or for many of the jobs out there because we would probably all just share everything. We know, that’s communism and there’s no room for that in these parts. Well, yeah, it’s true. Communism gets messy, but that’s not because communism is flawed. It’s because we are flawed. It all comes back to people and how we treat each other.

Most developed economies are built around the fact that people are selfish and not very nice to each other. They harness that very effectively and turn it into something that is beneficial to all of us. That is the magic of capitalism. It somehow manages to bring something good out of something bad. So, without being any more philosophical than we have to be, these are 25 jobs that wouldn’t exist if people were actually decent to each other.
