An Idea

“If you think there's a solution, you're part of the problem”
George Carlin, comedian

Tell me where I am wrong.

If we were to attempt to bring manufacturing back into the country by offering companies tremendous tax advantages if they gave employees a living wage, capped CEO salaries at three or four hundred thousand dollars a year, and if the companies were successful and went public stock options would have to be shared equally among all employees, and tax benefits would decline proportionally.

Is it possible and does it make any sense?

Makes sense if you believe in utopia.

I have heard great things about the place, but I have not been there yet.

I do believe, I do, I do, I do believe in Utopia, to paraphrase my kindred spirit the Scarecrow.
