Greed always was, always is, always will be.

America counted 2.6 million jobs disappearing, and many more are on stake.
In the same time Wall Street counted the highest bonuses in history.
Even the President was outraged about it.
The gap between the wealthiest 5 percent of citizens and the poorest 5 percent has never been wider, and Americans in the middle are not much better than those just below them.
The rich got richer and the poor poorer.
That is how life goes, and greediness is something you cannot cancel.
Because it is a part of being human.
What you can do is not letting that happen, fight against it, but how?
Certainly not with higher taxes.
What history teaches is that Education, similar opportunities, fight against corruption and nepotism are good ways to let the Middle Class to reach a higher standard of living.
Which is definitely the way to produce a healthy economy.
When richness is shared, besides creating a better society, you also create a much higher number of consumers which creates a higher request of goods which gives a spring to the economy.
If you want to rescue the economy, upgrade the living standard and that will automatically create new jobs and a new future. (not in a few months of course, but it will certainly do)
