As a trader, I’m sure you’ve been pressed with the question, what value do traders bring to society?
Over the years I have heard arguments for both sides ranging from “a trader provides liquidity, they transferring risk from farmers, to trading is a zero sum game and adds no value to the greater economy.”
Before I put together my post on what a trader brings to society, I thought I’d get some insight from you, a reader, and fellow trader.
What value do you think a trader adds to society, if any?
I hope to spark some lively discussion with this topic so leave your thoughts below, I look forward to reading everyone’s comments!
