I think this just shows the “big CEOs” don’t hire, nor listen to any economists, and they are shitty economists themselves. Republican economic programs invariably tank the economy. Sure, you get more of that sweet, sweet inequality. But that doesn’t boost your profits.
You know what boosts your profits? When everyone can afford to buy your products. Remember the 1950s? No you don’t. The 1950s saw the lowest inequality in history, and corporations made vast profits.
But it’s more fun to think you’ve got it all figured out, and get busy punishing the poor.
