    To "Fullypresent" so then I take it that you don't buy gasoline from any of the big oil companies, nor do you watch movies with big name stars, nor do you listen to music from any of the big stars. Your car was manufactured by a small company.

    You know, that when you do any of those things that you are supporting the very thing you claim to hate.

    Who cares about income inequality. What I care more about is economic mobility.

    Take a look at North Korea, their incomes are very equal, but would you want to live there?

    Yes, all the super stars out there are over paid, whatever the field they are in. People should go out and be the best they can be. At the same time they shouldn't lose a sense of the greater good of society. There isn't any society at the end of the day that can thrive and survive with ongoing extreme income inequality. Capitalism taken to an extreme is not good capitalism.

    To "Fullypresent " so, are you saying that the big name entertainers are also overpaid and greedy?

    The average CEO of all companies makes less than $400,000/yr according to Government data.

    The information in this article is only talking about the biggest companies in the world. In other words, the superstars of the business world.

    Another example of unbridled greed in our society.

    If people are unhappy with their pay they can quit and find a new job. I’m not sure why people are so surprised that their bosses make a lot more than them. To me this seems like common sense. Those with the most desirable and unique attributes that benefit a company most are payed more than others. This isn’t an issue, or a conspiracy it’s insentive to better oneself and develop marketable characteristics and talents within ourselves.
