Saw this question in an article today and thought...that's a great question, I should ask my fellow hubbers!

    Exactly. I totally agree, Anne, the free market does have limits and those limits are the exact point where the question of morality enters.

    Your 3rd point defies the laws of economics. The wealthy get wealthy by creating capital.Their wealth has no bearing on what somebody else is paid. We are all paid what we are worth in a free market.Your worth is what someone will pay for your skills

    Lostdog, You nailed it - caught Mr.Clark in a LOADED question and turned it around! If you haven't already read or heard Dr. George Lakoff, linguist from Berkeley, talk about how rhetoric affects our views, you might like to google him. Cheers!
