with this as a jump off point
and as a side kicker to the GE thread I suppose …what are some practical solutions to this massive gap?
Could it be directly regulated? How? Could a Govt. impose a direct ratio cap between median & CEO pay? Would it be effective or would companies just split & stratify into smaller companies based on wage clusters? What might be the consequences both +ve or -ve about that?
to my mind, this ratio is right at the heart of so many problems in modern capitalist society, couldn’t we have an economic policy that directly regulates it? Surely that would be more effective than the so-called progressive income tax system we currently use
