I support Dodd-Frank rule 953(b), which strikes me as being all about the intersection of pay equity and investor value.

The high ratios of CEO to worker pay indicates that Capitalism is distorting, to the detriment of our so-called democracy. At the root of the matter: Is "We The People" merely an anachronism; are we not ruled by money instead, a monetocracy? 

TO adopt a filmic metaphor, we all live in Pottersville, where the vast majority of citizens are NOT represented in Washington, and where money buys leaders in the system, plain and simple.

A first step in illuminating the inequality is at least declaring how much our fat cat corporate leaders are raking in, not to mention how they are "redistributing" it.
