    The military serves as an instrument of social mobility and as an employer of last resort.

    That is by design, and a good thing.

    That's a very narrow view.

    If people or groups have an interest in having a military, are they likely to attempt to create conditions conducive to requiring people to seek out an employer of last resort?

    Why so many billionaires? They can't spend it all.

    Why so many people on low incomes?

    If some company of 10000 pays their top executives a total of 200 million, that's $20000 per employee....

    Some guy is bragging to his friends he has a stock portfolio worth $80 mil. It just sits there, generating wealth. Doesn't do anything else.

    That would be enough to provide health care and jobs and medical cover to all the poor people in his city. It would also make companies more productive as they would have more workers.

    Instead, this guy has a stock fund he can feel good about.

    This is not his expense account, day to day living account, or savings account.
