    I can understand the whole idea of making sure CEOs don't get massive bonuses, but regulating the pay of the employees? Sorry - that's a wee bit too far to the left for me.

    Post the youtube. Neil Cavuto is the typical free market wingnut and usually I don't agree with Ben Stein, but in this heated exchange he got it right.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAEAMJ76KHk]YouTube - Neil Cavuto in screamathon with Ben Stein over our failed economy and how to repair it.[/ame]

    So I suppose frogmarching the CEOs to a wall and shooting them doesn't work for you, either, does it?

    Too bad.

    You in the investor class are probably the CEO class' most aggreieved victims, after the workers.

    When the shareholders and the workers unions finally realize that their interests are essantially the same, THEN this nation will begin to heal itself.

    I read recently that the CEOs of the fortune 500 make on average about 400 time what their line workers make. (up from about 25 times in the 1960s)

    But as long as the shareholders and workers are effectively prvented for questioning that trend to overpay regardless of oucomes, the shareholders and the workers are gonna get screwed.

    Is the above a leftist attitude?

    I actually think its a very pro-CAPITALISM attitude myself, but hey...what do I know?

    Nonsense. Edit but usual for you.

    Kenesianism: the idiotic notion that businessmen are more dangerous to the body politic than are government bureaucrats.
