One complex question:
One complex question that I think leads to finding an answer to the question of my epic's title is this one.
How many people with portions of their pay invested in 401Ks and union pension plans realize how their savings have enabled the trustees of those plans to make a mockery of the promise of "publicly held" corporations?Why is this question germane?
Certainly the trustees that manage that those plans are all carefully vetted corporate men and unionists (corporatists and Leftists? -- R & L Downers at any rate) respectively, who vote each other onto corporate boards of directors when each new proxy is sent out.
They drink fine wine and eat caviar at annual shareholders' meetings as they battle amongst themselves:
- what is their most favorable course of corporate and governmental directions?
- who in government are most certain to advance their goals?
- who in government is most certain to obstruct their goals?
- who on K Street is the best choice to see their ultimatums get delivered?
How did America become a corporate-fascist clone of the Soviet Union?
