I have just had my interest 'tweeked' by recent articles reporting that the top 100 Canadian CEO's had already earned more than the national average workers salary by 10:21AM on the 2nd of January 2008; so, have you identified 'ethical investment funds' that are linked to salary caps? I have recently retired after 10 years in the financial industry and 30 years in government and have never met anyone who is 'worth' more than 10 times what I am worth (let alone 365 times) - so, Im thinking it is time to redirect my retirement savings. During WWII there were a lot of business executives described as "dollar a day men" - they either put their day jobs on hold or found someone in their company to act on their behalf while they worked for the common good/national interest - are there company executives today who link their paycheque to their worker's salaries and business bottom line so that suppliers (local, in-house and foreign workers and the investors/shareholders alike) truly feel the benefit of a 'trickle down' economy?
