Think for a moment how your family life would be different if you had the $25,000 income or the $11.9 million.

Where would you live?

What changes would you make in your lifestyle?

Would you support a proposal for a "living-wage" law that would lift families above poverty level (now estimated to range from $8 to $10 per hour depending on regional economic conditions?

Would you support the proposal from groups like Responsible Wealth to set a maximum ratio between CEO and worker earnings?

Explain.

Sure... People need to make at least $15.00 to survive in this country.

Sure why not. CEO are making way too much money and when the company fails they already socked away tons of money anyway....

Explain.
CEO and Board of Directors are just window dressing and the workers are the one busting their behinds..

I am just kidding .. tongue in cheek.. it is probably could be true.. ALl of it.

That's a pretty DENT survey ... Think about it.
$25,000 a year barely making it in these days and age. That's about 1700 a month after taxes.
In the meantime $11.9 million will be equivalent to about $500,000 spendable a month.
Can you compare it? NO~

Where would you live?
All over, whenever I feel like it where ever I want to go.

What changes would you make in your lifestyle?
Quit the flicking job and just buy a motorhome or a learjet man~

depending on regional economic conditions?
Depending on regional economic conditions, that the answer.

Would you support the proposal from groups like Responsible Wealth to set a maximum ratio between CEO and worker earnings?
CEO usually spent years and years working their behind off builidng their businesses before they get where they are. Shouldn't they have a fair share of the fruits of their own labor?

Explain.
I just did.

To be very smart and sensible, I would pay off all the debts. Investment in long term savings, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real estate. Set up trust funds for my family.
Buy a vacation home. Buy a dream car. Invest in a small business that is fun and profitable.

Where would you live?
Snow country cabin, ocean front beach house,
a cottage in the middle of the vineyard in the winecountry.

What changes would you make in your lifestyle?
See above plus no more boss, no more 9-5.

Depends.

NO!

The USA is a democratic society and a capitalist system.

----------------------------
The General Theory of the New Capitalist System

The concept of the new capitalist system draws its origin from John Locke's theory about the «Birth of Society and the Origin of State), and it may be summarized as follows:

(Neither the church, nor the state, nor society, is entitled to bar the way of any individual in his efforts towards benefit and advancement. Complete liberty must be easily available to each individual so as to enable him to utilize his natural propensity, quality and competence according to his own leanings and proceed further according to his own ability. Society itself cannot render any real service unless everybody in it is given the chance to enjoy unlimited liberty in all spheres of life. He should also be entirely free in doing the type of work he likes; he should be free from all types of official, religious, moral, legal and social restriction».

This theory linked private ownership with liberty, considering it as a basic part and proof of it - indeed, as its bastion. That is because man was born, in a natural state with basic rights - namely the right to live, to be free and to own property. The state, in that case, is nothing but a result of a contract signed by the people in an attempt to find out agreed means to serve and protect those rights. Any authority which violates that contract has no foundation, every individual, in an attempt to defend his liberties and basic rights, should oppose and revolt against such an authority.
