If I were to list by bottom three trades I'd include fx traders. They strike me as operating right at the sharp edge of capitalism, profiting from instability. But they do put forward a strong economic case in that they're correcting imbalances which could be left unchecked and would ultimately destabilize economies.
Beneath them I'd have consultants, particularly estate agents and recruitment consultants. They add little and the self-serving tactics they employ at a time when people are at their most sensitive are nothing short of callous. Fortunately, their 'services' are being replaced through the web and they're now optional and possibly will become a thing of the past.
But right at the bottom of my list are <snip> domain name resellers. They add nothing and they simply stand as an obstacle to the economic flow. Even those who laud capitalism recognise there needs to be something going back into the system. But domain name resellers just take.
How can we flush this rubbish out?
