    and neither was your comment. do you actually have an on topic point or are you content to simply disagree with everything I post? (aka trolling)

The best thing I can think of, so far, is some sort of ratio'd limit to salary. Sure, you can make $30 million a year, but you can earn up to, let's say, 50 times your lowest paid employee. That way, if you want a raise, guess who else gets a raise? That way, personal income is never limited, but it cannot be earned off of the backs of others.

    I know I'll get hammered for that opinion, but eh, that's just my opinion. Every job in a company is important, or else that job wouldn't exist.
    Today is a great day to prove my point of where the problem lies.

    Bernanke comes out today saying that the Fed is going to make money even cheaper.

    Fed, Five Central Banks Cut Dollar Swap Rate - Bloomberg

    Who is benefiting today? The markets.

    INDU Quote - Dow Jones Industrial Average Index - Bloomberg

    Did the workers at Target get a raise because they are going to need it.

    Oil above $101 on central banks's liquidity plan - Yahoo! News

    Fundementally are things getting better? That is, the markets are rising but is it because of the things that will creat employment? No.

    News Headlines

    Read this headline. The things that would actually create real growth has been revised downward with wages following. Shouldn't the markets react negatively to this? No, they are rejoicing because Bernanke is going to continue creating inflation.

    There is your problem.

    You have a way of making sweeping statements and then qualifying them after I challenge you. We're a good team.
    Like when you stated that increasing wages was completely dismissable to prices rising?

    No, I was a business owner that had to actually figure out how to pay my employees, pay taxes, while at the same time keep prices low enough to attract business.

    But I guess in your mind a person sitting in a classroom chair knows more than a person that actually does it for 30 years.

    So you're saying that every time you had an increase in labor costs, you always raised prices?

    Of course. Not immediately, but rates increased annually each year to keep pace with salaries. All professional firms do the same.

    Are you that clueless??

    So you never ever adjusted any other costs down, whether or not your labor costs went up? All increases in costs always led to price increases?

    And did you lose business due to the price increases?

    And why did you raise salaries in the first place?
