Tell us how CEOs making money is causing the down turn in the economy. Don't you think that Government interference is actually the cause of the bad economy or haven't you been paying attention. The reason capitalism doesn't seem to be working is because this country isn't capitalistic anymore, it is fascism at its finest.
Over regulation, over taxation and stupid rules such at Nafta have brought our country to it's knees, not capitalism.
One thing I do notice, when God was instructing the ancient Israelites was that wealth was not meant to be a permanent institution. At the Jubilee, all debts were cleared and all wealth was supposed to be relinquished. A person was free to create as much wealth as they could, but, if it had been obeyed, there could never be a continual concentration of wealth.
Now personally, I don’t care if somebody drives a fancier car or lives in a bigger home or has a much bigger wallet than I do. But I cannot help but wonder if a society can remain stable, if any small group within it is capable of gathering wealth to the point where they become permanently wealthy and is capable of ensuring that the rest of society is incapable of doing the same thing.
