My real fear is that we end up with a humongous poverty class, that eventually cannot be supported with the life basics, housing, water, food and medical. It's how protests, mobs and riots evolve into revolution. The amount of permanently unemployed is continuing to grow, and I don't see how forcing corporate executives to take a pay cut really helps the situation, unless they use the extra money to hire people. But since that's not really a sound business practice, it's not likely to happen or solve anything.
What we really need is new tech or housing type 'bubble', but with extended slow growth, rather than an explosion of wealth for the rich. The quandary is how to start this cycle, besides a political issue like 'green' energy. Call it new sources of energy, make it profitable enough for production jobs to be created, and not a one sided situation where only a small portion of those involved benefit.
