Do you believe America is in a decline due to corporate greed?
The average CEO of a large U.S. company made roughly $10.8 million last year, or 364 times that of U.S. full-time worker.
These are U.S. companies either sending American jobs overseas, or choosing to employ cheap overseas labor, instead of American workers. As these CEO's salaries go up, we are losing jobs and the cost of products are going up as well.
Here a list of such companies http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/lou.dobbs.tonight/popups/exporting.america/content.html

So silly for folks who aren't 'rich' to resent the folks who are. Instead of focusing on everything one doesn't have, one should focus on a plan to get themselves to the next level. If someone is not happy/comfortable with their financial situation, then there are so many opportunities to advance in our country. There are those who are struggling with job loss from the economy, and they are the exception IMO, but for those who've just never been wealthy to chastise those who are is just self-loathing and despicable. Why should someone who has more money be forced to give it up just b/c someone else whines that it is 'unfair'. Ugh, grow up. FYI, I came from nothing, moved out at 16, put myself through H.S., put myself through University, worked my a** off, and STILL don't have a mansion, sports car, or a hefty bank account. The path I chose was one that doesn't make a ton of money, but I am not going to pound my fist

If you don't like corporations, don't eat at chain restaurants.... But then you will have more unemployed across the nation. Don't shop at Wal Mart, Target, Kohls, JCPenney, Macys, etc~and they can go out of business and lower to middle income people won't have a cheaper more affordable options. Don't drive a GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, etc... Don't put gas in that car... Do you see how this works??.... Consumers prefer a more affordable options.. DEMAND built big corporations. Those options stemmed from consumer demand... Do you understand supply and demand? So, what would you do~ when these options are no longer available? If these Co. were to go? Will you feed, clothe, and provide for those who are no longer employed by a big corporation? Will you care for those who have benefited from a large company(consumer/employee)? Or will you look to the government to care for them?

delilahsmom1177 So, by your explanation because I sold the business that I worked 13 years to build for a nice profit~ someone like you should dictate how much I give to charity, how much I put back into the economy? (ie building a new house)
