    Zycher you should be glad I didn’t have a mouth full of coffee when I read your opening line. The right led us into the worst recession in 80 years and there’s lack of thinking in THIS White House? Have you sir, at long last, no sense of decency?

    And to suggest the US has a market economy in labor is risible. The 1% have tripled their income in the last 30 years. Are they REALLY 300% more valuable than they were then?

    I’ll make sure I check the by line before I take a drink of coffee when I look at AEI from now on!

  2. Does it occur to Dr. Zycher that some employers might see their marginal cost of labor as zero if they force their salaried ‘managers’ to work longer hours without compensation?? – – – – or that three salaried workers can do the work hours that was formerly assigned to four??

    It is likely we will see even more of this when labor markets are slack as they still seem to be.
