Unlevel Playing Field

by varjavand on

An average pay for the CEO’s according to this report is $7,230,000. To put it perspective, this number is about 186 times the per capita income of this country. A clear indication the playing field is tilted appallingly in favor of the big guys and the loss of economic power of middle class. The more money goes into the hands of the richest, the bigger is the probability of another economic crisis in the future.
