Thanks for putting it in perspective, Dimitri. What a mess.

A good representation of how a lot of people take what they have and have access to for granted.
That aside, people are fed up with being lied to, inept greedy leaders and basicly corporate greed.
Be in it the middle east, europe, here or the USA the feeling seems to be the same, things need to change.
Simple things like CEO's willing fight tooth and nail to NOT to give the rank and file a payrise of 2 to 4 %, but are quite happy to double their own pay annually.
The polititions here are looking at doubling their own pay, must pay well to get quality apparently, I say lets look at that when the current oxygen theives have been chucked out, they definately ARENT worth double the money.
Things like wall st and the car industry showing up in private aircraft to crisis meetings while holding their hand out because they've just created the greatest downturn since the great depression, and then giving themselves fat excessive bonus's with the money they were "loaned" to get out of trouble. At least some of the "leaders" during the great depression did the right thing and offed themselves, these pricks gave themselves a pay rise when they should have copped a bullet.
Someone mentioned once "come the revolution", seeems in some places its on the way.

Corporations are usually public - the stockholders make money when the businesses are profitable. When the businesses are profitable jobs are stable and people have access to goods and money to buy them.
Corporation require other businesses to support them.
Take the seattle area:
Boeing and Microsoft employ or have businesses that supply them somewhere near 75% of the population of Seattle. Take away the corporations and we will all move back to subsistance farms working 14 - 16 hour days just to eek out enough to survive.
There is a lot of big money in corporations but it takes someone to make that money and the sales force is what does it. The top 10% will always make 90% of the money - if you dispersed all the money in the world equally today then in 5 years the distribution of wealth would be the same as it is now because most people only know how to spend money - not how to make it.
If you want to make money like the corporations then start one. Build it by spending 14 - 16 hours a day, 7 days a week making it grow and then once it has made a name for itself you can collect the big bucks and share it with all those you got to invest in it. Microsoft made more millionaires in less time than any other corporation to date.
Education about how and when to make money would solve the problem if all people were the same but some people don't have what it takes to be in business for themselves and settle for the 40 hour week that those who do.

Paul, Boeing is a guilty as most, I spent 8 years working for them over here and they changed 4 CEO's in the states and 2 in Boeing Australia here over that time for doing almost criminal acts. Seems once the pay gets above a certain level they think the law or their own companies rules and policies dont apply to them.
This would be the same company that laid off over 20,000 workers in 2001 after 9/11?
You are right though, Seattle and Washington state economy revolves around Boeing, who most of the time tries to do the right thing.
Just don't mention the cloud over the Next Gen 737 fuselage production joint frames.....
