here was a video i cannot now find, which explained how market economy works. according to it, if one gets a loan to buy a tv, it’s not very good for economy, because when he has to return money, he does not buy other things, and that’s about stagnation. on the other hand, if one gets a loan to buy a tractor, he makes business, produces goods with it, and it’s good for economy.
now i think: if i get a camera and make photos, i produce something, which not only i don’t intent to sell, nobody ever needs to buy. (: i do it for my own pleasure, so it’s like i got a tv, and watch it. or i have to make very high quality photographs, become a professional and enter the market. which is not my dream.
what else do i like? writing software, (not that i’ve written a lot of useful things) and i license it under free licenses usually. if i write free software, then it’s probably good for economy, if some business uses my free software. even if i don’t get paid. right?
so in order to be useful for economy i have to write free software which not only may, but will be used. am i right? in order to be good for economy efforts i have spent are not enough. they need to have resulted in “product” and it has to be used somewhere by many.
