So are you saying you agree with the way things are run in the financial sector? Wall street, big banks, bailouts (using tax payer money) for those banks, currency wars etc.?
It might be "machine efficiency" for the individuals who have already hoarded some wealth. BUT it's making it more and more difficult for the regular Joe Shmoe to take care of the wife and kids. Joe works his butt off, 80 to 100 hours a week and it's still only just enough for them to get by, meanwhile there are CEOs and other execs who work 20 - 30 hours a week but are raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars salary. You don't see anything wrong with the disparity here at all? Is this just "the nature of capitalism" and Joe Shmoe wasn't in the right place at the right time and his fate is a result of such?
I'm just amazed anyone other than the super rich at the top see this as a sound economic system...
