Wedge In Those Pay Gaps Everywhere!

Not content to grow inequality only between executives and employees, white- and blue-collar workers, and legal-financial elites and the ordinary middle-class, business leaders are driving a wedge between the CEO and numbers 2 and 3 in their own executive offices. Since there is nothing economically efficient about these incessant and widening gaps, they have to be explained through the pure self-interest of the very top people, coupled with a bizarre neo-capitalist culture in which creating inequality is a sign of one' s viritility and special destiny. See the article for the data and charts. See the image here for the symbolic meaning.

We are circling back to the beginning.
