well I mean when I say "create a climate that makes it advantageous" for our corporate overlords to do exactly what is the most profitable for them, that totes means that the government forced the poor widdle corporations to run laughing all the way to the bank.
First let's not forget that government's most recent implementation of a 'rising tide lifts all ships' policy (ironically such as the one posted in the OP) was to artificially store liquidity in the housing market to disastrous ends (and windfall profits to banks and wall street in general).
The ensuing recession has offered no shortage of opportunity for the corporation to rape the common man.
The job market is flooded with overqualified geriatric worker
s wiling to work for a fraction of their worth. Thanks to near zero interest rates, they'll take any money they can get for their highly developed skills. And they do. Meanwhile, younger workers in the heart of what would be the skill-developing portion of their careers are missing out and will never be as competitive as their older peers.
Meanwhile the government is enslaving the young working class
all the while making it harder for them to break free of their chains.
This in turn has caused a baby bust
that is further narrowing the middle class and decreasing working class opportunities.
I'm sure I missed a few other hundred ways that the government is oppressing the young and working class.
But hey, it's probably just those greedy old CEOs that are just stealing from us, because they're evil and sh
it and there's no larger forces at work here.
Let's just agree that the federal government is largely comprised of rich people that are interested In getting richer to varying degrees, while still maintaining just enough public goodwill to get re-elected.
