income gaps & Monbiot on the neoliberal con

The front page of yesterday’s Guardian featured a story, The Boardroom Bonanza on the 98 to 1 gap between executive and employee pay. I have no doubt that mention of the “R” word would carry little weight in policy discussions, but I also wonder what it will take for the people at the top to recognize that in the long run these disparities are not in their best interests. Or, am I merely naive? George Monbiot’s column puts things in perspective.
