I’ve attended the Occupy Ottawa protests for the past three days. I don’t know if I will get a chance to go today. One of the issues that is on people’s minds is, understandably, enormous executive pay, bonuses, green parachutes, etc. CEOs are living the high life while the peasants are scratching around in the rubbish.
People at the protests say we need to get rid of the free market because it has led to the enormous wealth disparities we see today, demonstrated most notably by sky rocketing CEO salaries.
Their conservative opponents argue that CEO salaries prove that CEOs provide a necessary social function, and that the free market is only doing its job.
Molyneux proves both sides wrong.
