Job Creation: The Beginning

Job Creation: The Beginning October 29, 2012

This cartoon from The New Yorker came to my attention via Facebook:

The comments on the Facebook page were interesting, with many pointing out that the perspective of Genesis is that God did create jobs for Adam and Eve: gardening.

But is it the job of God or government to create jobs for human beings? And if the human beings in question are required to work in specific jobs they cannot choose for themselves, isn't that Communism? And if it is a question of doing manual labor picking fruit for no pay, there are, I am told, plenty of such jobs around – but they are not what most people have in mind when they talk about “job creation.” 🙂
