So I'm having a conversation with my mom about the state of the economy and credit and all that good jazz. I've had this conversation with her before, about 4 years ago when I had mentioned that the average executive's pay was about 300 times more than the average employee pay and that this was going to be a problem in the future. I was shot down immediately. She had spewed all kinds of stuff straight from Papa Bear and Ann Coulter and whoever else, saying that executives travel around the world meeting clients and potential clients, and they have more risk in that they're held responsible if something illegal happens under their noses, yadda yadda yadda.
Fast forward to yesterday, wouldn't you know it, but the big problem with our economy is executive pay run amok.
Why do I even bother talking?
