    Call me selfish but if i was to start a business, to minimise cost i would not have more 5 employees and instead have machinery.

    Wouldn't you agree that it is better to manufacture and produce goods in large quantities by paying for a machine than to have many workers.?

    In this case, I believe the secondary sector is the most important than tertiary for providing jobs as it minimises cost to pay for employees wages.

    Well there's some things robots can't do that humans excel in. This is probably because we have a conscious. I wouldn't want a robot for a psychiatrist. People might also complain about the lack of human rights.

    I meant in the context of the economic structure,as it's the source that channels raw materias to goods and sends them to the tertially sector,therefore it must be the most beneficial sector to concentrate of if one was to start a business.

    It keeps the cost of production low as it uses machinery.and it is always reliable to work compared o employing workers in the tertiary sector?

    but again, it may cost more to run machines than to pay humans minimum wage. and machines aren't always reliable. They break down and may need repaired by a human which would cost yet more money.

    If you think its cheaper to have machines make trainers than Bangladeshi children then you're very mistaken...
