    Reduce staff, raise production…on paper.

    Stock prices go up as the company goes in the toilet.

    Stockholders cash out…layoff any remaining workers
    and start a new company.

    Let me hear one more word out of you, Bob Cratchit, and you’ll celebrate by losing your situation!

    There was a Twilight Zone episode about workers being replaced by machines … with the boss chuckling gleefully about the money saved … until the last robot replaced him!

    Wherever you work, there’s differing situations on each side of The Wall.

    odd. I was pretty happy with the stock market going up.
    Of course, I have been investing for my retirement since the day I started working.
    I suppose if I had spent the last 25 years hoping the government would take care of me, I’d think the stock market was just for rich people.

    “odd. I was pretty happy with the stock market going up.

    If you’ve made money in the stock market as a small investor over a 25 year span, you’ve had some luck on your side. People who have had layoffs or health issues probably weren’t lucky enough to play at the Wall Street Casino.

    Most of the rest of us are busy working & living our lives. Staying on top of just a few stocks is a another job.

    Freedom to succeed in life, whether that success is material wealth or something else, also means the freedom to fail. Those who have succeeded financially in the USA have been able to do so, because they were skilled at producing goods & services. Or they were skilled at managing and acquiring companies that provided goods & services that people were willing to pay for. That is what capitalism is all about, creating the right conditions for people to succeed.

    In order for the vast income you speak of to be distributed more or less equitably, would involve taking away that freedom, and replacing it with government agencies to take from the rich and give to those that are poor. But even if that were to succeed, and history shows it is not, we are faced with the fact that a large proportion of the poor in America got that way because of lifestyles that wasted what little money they had. You may give a poor man $100,000, but chances are, in a few short years he will squander the money. Redistribution of income has never worked, and it WILL never work, look at any Socialist or Communist country.
