    Simply put its not the governments fault the rich are getting richer. Not entirely anyway. You want to balance the wealth, stop giving your money to big corporations. Support your local businesses. This isn't complicated.

    There is a bit of that, however, a lot of law facilitates the support of corporation over small business. There's so much entanglement of State and Corporation that the Corporation benefits heavily from lax oversight, to continual tax payer subsidies and tax incentives. Small business doesn't get everything that corporate gets, the playing field is not level (as it would be in free market), and it is facilitated through power of State.

    Regardless of that, you have the choice in who you give your money to. These corporations wouldn't have anything to tax and it wouldnt matter if people simply used their money more responsibly. Small businesses cannot compete with these big businesses because big businesses outsource, employ slave wages, abuse employees, water down products ect. But we as consumers give them all our money and force any company that wants to compete to do the same thing. Its not the government, it's us. As long as consumers reward big businesses for these tactics they are going to continue to do them. No matter how much you, me, OWS, teaparty or any one else doesnt like it, as long as we all keep funneling all of our money to these organizations they aren't going to change. Money matters. Not words.

    You act like we all make conscience choices when buying. At no point have I ever chosen to support Monsanto, but I have probably given them far more money than I care to know about.

    So its Monsanto's fault that you refuse to support your local business and instead CHOOSE to give money to them? Nice job with accountability there buddy.

    If you want to see class warfare, watch Fox talking heads and poltiical entertainers. No one is more emersed in that battle than they are.

    But it makes for an easy talking point for the intellectually challeneged.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh you mean when they talk about the "leeching" class (or whatever they call it)? Can you remember what they call poor people? I can't off the top of my head but it relates to them leeching.
