I don't know why people make apologies for a system that has no problem feeding a disproportionate amount of wealth to rich people. I have no problem with rich people earning money in a capitalistic fashion. But executive compensation is an unbelievably big problem that the right refuses to acknowledge. And our economy is never going to correct itself as long as executives are hoarding cash instead of investing into growing their companies again. In many cases, it's not the fault of rich executives -- who wouldn't want more money? In many cases, it absolutely is when they purposefully work against the interests of the company to fill their own pockets with more money.
Don't get me wrong, I don't support ANY kind of long term welfare - personal or corporate. But a company has a right to issue billions in executive incentives - it is their personal right, even if it drives them to bankruptcy. Let a company drive itself into the ground, and let's refuse to bail out the idiots instead of acting like our nation will become a wasteland when they fail.
