    CEO pay soars while workers' pay stalls - USATODAY.com

    At a time most employees can barely remember their last substantial raise, median CEO pay jumped 27% in 2010 as the executives’ compensation started working its way back to prerecession levels, a USA TODAY analysis of data from GovernanceMetrics International found. Workers in private industry, meanwhile, saw their compensation grow just 2.1% in the 12 months ended December 2010, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics


    As CEOs tell their workers....."You need to tighten your belts in these tough economic times"

    And it's the customer base that these corporations depend upon for future sales! Can those few uber rich spend the way the masses of consumers do? Can their spending drive the economy like the workers spending can?

    Concentrate wealth into fewer and fewer hands and that wealth will stagnate. The only way the economy works is the EXCHANGE of wealth for goods and services, not by concentrating the wealth among the very few.

    Look to sub-Saharan Africa for your paradigm of stagnation. The poor mine the wealth, the owners keep the wealth and the poverty grows exponentially.
