Dow has been extremely high for this 2 years.
And, there is NO trickle-down effects.

So, American-stock-prices must crash now.
All economists, includiong left and right, must be fired.
Economists are useless.

Even left-economists love high stock-prices and wall street.

Expantion of Amercina-ecomy is proved to be wrong.
The U.S. must contract its domestic-demand now.

You are to blame.
You failed to show results.

The assertion from left-economists that "Economy is depressed" proved to be wrong.

The assertion from right-economists that "trickle-down effects will happen" proved to be wrong.

You are wrong.
We Americans need Heavy-Industry and Labor-Unions in the U.S. for Americans.

Or, you must show results.
You have failed.

But, in fact, Big-Mac-set(? Quater pounder set??) cost $7 or $8 already.
And, where is the profit from such high-price-menu?
Even, companies make money, all those money goes to Wall Street.
(And, I think that you said that you hated Wall Street.)
(You accused Obama that Obama was a supporter of Wall Street.)
That's wrong!
Americna-workers deserve much higher wages.
First of all, on the contrary.
if you drop the price of a menu from $5 to $1,
you cannot eat frive "$1 sets".
You are destroying companies and workers.
Sorry, I made typos.

<quoted text>okay you're right. None of them would want a raise, this is crazy. Sure.
People who have the knowledge, skills and abilities to operate a fortune 500 company are few and they are in high demand. That's why they command such a high salary.

People who have the knowledge, skills and abilities to flip hamburgers at McDonald's are a dime a dozen. That's why they command nothing more than minimum wage.

There's a reason Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers earn more money than almost every other pro football player - because they have knowledge, skills and abilities that very few others have, and they are paid accordingly.

Should those top paid players all take huge pay cuts so a 3rd string lineman can get a raise from the NFL's league minimum pay? Of course not, and neither should you expect a highly educated, highly skilled corporate executive to take a huge pay cut so a handful of floor sweepers can make an extra buck an hour.

If the minimum wage workers want a raise, let them acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities that command a higher salary. They have opportunity to do so. It's their choice.

And if they want to be a CEO, they can work their way up over the course of their careers, or they can risk everything they have and open their own business. I bet if they did that, they'd learn a thing or two about purchasing goods and services, including labor, based on market value.

What is "operating a fortune 500 company"???
Even if I admit that "operating a fortune 500 company"??? is difficult,
today's CEOs donot operate well nor corectly.

If the CEOs say the CEOs are "operating a fortune 500 company",
then those CEOs must export their companys' products from the U.S. and get market-share in the U.S. and in abroad!!!

Those CEOs are only selling off their companies in pieces.

Even you or me can do cutting workers and downsizing the company.

But, those CEOs can NEVER do increase exportation from the U.S> and get market-0-share in the U.S. and in abroad.

Those CEOs are useless, stupid, lazy, imcompetent, rich-boys.
Fire those CEOs.

If those CEOs say those CEOs can do anything,
then show us the results!

Those CEOs must export their companys' products from the U.S. and get market-share in the U.S. and in abroad!!!

Those CEOs NEVER deserve their salaries!
And, Economists, media, and Universities are colluding with each-other.
Economists, media, and Universities are colluding with those CEOs.

They are NEVER capitalists.
They are the supporters of fuedal-society.
And, the U.S. got independence from fuedal-society.
So, they are violating American-constitution.

<quoted text>Mr. Wolf, I would like to ask you a direct question, and if possible I would like a direct answer. How much do you believe these fast food workers should make(a dollar amount), that you would find reasonable.
That's a tough question. Maybe they could meet somewhere in the middle, at about 10 or 11 dollars per hour. Fast food profits are higher than ever, while their employees have to scuffle to survive. That is not the America I want.

<quoted text>right, huge corporations can't afford to share any of their billions of dollars in profit. Get real. They already play by a whole new set of unfair rules as far as smaller restaurants go. As a share holder in McDonald's and Pepsi(they own taco bell) I can tell you that they could give every employee a raise and not raise their prices much at all.
They could, but they're not going to. It's all about their wallets. McDonald's employees are a dime a dozen.

Thanks. But I bet you would be suprised that many fast food workers make that much. I know this because, I have family members in their teens that work for both Wendy's and Taco Bell. One has worked for a little over a year saving for college and she makes $9.75 and hour.

Cancer-treatment may need high-wage-surgeons.

Life-prolonging treatment or nursing-care donot need high-wage-surgeons.
Life-prolonging treatment or nursing-care donot need even nurses.
(I have NO intention to insult any one of American-elders.)
(I have NO intention to insult any one of American- nurses.)
(I have NO intention to insult any one of American-care-staffs.
(I love the U.S.)
(I love Americans.)

Today's U.S. is not carrying out radical-reforms.
Today's U.S. is only postponing radical-treatment.

So, today's U.S. doesnot need high-wage-CEOs.
You are deceieved.

Radical-reforms donot mean cutting the weak of society in the U.S.

Radical-reforms do mean cutting Military-Budget, increasing exportation and reviving Heavy-Inbdustry.

In order to win a war, you may need excellent-commanders.
But, in order to lose a war, you donot need excellent-commanders.
Even stupid-lazy-rich-dull-boys can lose a war.

And, now, the U.S. is losing a war.
The U.S. is losing Exportation-war, trade-war, Heavy-Industry war.

You donot need such those lazy-stupid-high-wage-CEOs.
You must fire them now.
