Recurring Nightmares? Wake Up and Take Action

The weekly news is like a recurring bad dream that is becoming an even worse nightmare. While the investor class cheers a rising stock market, the rest of us sink. The headline that jumped out at us this week came from Bloomberg News: “CEO Pay 1,795-to-1 Multiple of Wages Skirts U.S. Law.”
