To the editor:
Yes, I know the typical response that we desperately need the “skills of all these wonderful, gifted, talented people.” I consider this a time to totally rethink our approach to economic growth. The “survival of the fittest” is a good Darwinian term for how capitalism works.
We all now have seen that this sector of our economy does need some regulation. Greed has become the top priority for too many. This is not the way “the fittest” should be measured. If they produce a better mouse trap, then let the market reward them, all of them (workers included). But in too many cases, “the fittest” have become those who can manipulate the market to their advantage. And they have strong lobbies.
Let those who care about the economy sign on for a moderate salary and earn their right to financial support.
