I would not have bailed out the banks directly and heres why!
the american bailout was $12.1 trillion comitted, but $2.5 trillion ACTUALLY spent, so ill go with the money used.
now i was going to divide by popualtion, 300 million. but, that wouldnt be fair, as newborns, toddlers, etc and people with dozens of kids would
benefit a hell of a lot more.
so to be fair, ill divide by taxpayers which is 140 million.
2.5 trillion divided by 140 million = $18,116.
so there you go, 18 grand to every taxpayer, and it has to be deposited into your BANK ACCOUNT, so defacto bailout of the bank, with your money, in
and i guess that would boost the economy because you can go out buy a car, support local economy and keep local jobs, pay off a chunk of your mortgage
Also you have minimum wage, like us here in u.k. yet i think we should have a MAXIMUM wage also. wages have gotten so large and obscene that they have
become socially detrimental. heres my thinking...
Barclays bank boss bob diamond, is paid £27 million pounds in one year, and a lot of bankers are paid similarly large amounts. considering they are
doing a terrible job, its annoying yet the because of the high wages paid in the PRIVATE sector the PUBLIC sector then has to accelerate its wages to
keep up with them.
Research by the TaxPayers' Alliance shows the number of local authority chief executives earning more than £100,000 a year has risen by 27% since
FIVE senior figures at the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority are among those highlighted in a “Public Sector Rich List” which showed they were
paid more than Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
The list shows that 806 executives working in 350 public bodies, including Whitehall departments and nationalised industries, collected more than
£150,000 during the 12 month financial period. And at least 350 executives in hospitals and primary care trusts were paid more than £150,000, nearly
80 of them exceeding the PM’s salary.
and it gets worse, while the average joe pays higher taxes, takes pay cuts to keep his job, and infation eats at the rest of what you earn, all this
is going, with private AND public sector now fuelled by your INCREASING taxes.how can it be justified socially?
if the prime minister is the leader of the country, why are local council bosses, hoswpital managers, or bankers being paid more than the big bosss
so id have a maximum wage set out out at no more than the pm gets!
