“The average worker makes approximately $50,000 per year. The average annual compensation of the thirty highest paid CEOs is approximately $47 million per year. (I don’t believe this disparity was ever this great even in most dictatorships!) You will hear many politicians argue that government should not interfere with the ‘business judgment’, of our companies and, therefore they cannot pass laws to encourage ‘income equality.’ This is completely untrue – the sad fact is that the government has actually passed many laws that have brought about ‘income inequality.’”
Comentário: É uma grande verdade que grande parte da desigualdade económica é o resultado da acção governativa, neste aspecto estou completamente de acordo do o Carl Icahn. A solução, porém, não deve ser mais Estado, deve ser afastar os Estados da economia.
