Why do people care about their credit scores?
So the banks will think highly of them.
Why do you care what the banks think of you?
Because you need a loan?
Because you don't make enough money to provide for your family?
And nobody gets raises anymore?
What's up with that?
Do you care what mass murderers and pedophiles think of you too?
What if the banks had something like credit scores to maintain with John Q. Public?
That would be funny, huh?
You know, some people don't struggle to pay their bills.
They don't have to worry about money.
Do you know why?
It's because they are "talented," silly.
Wall Street Pay: A Record $144 Billion
"Firms surveyed said it is too early to comment on 2010 compensation levels."Really? Is it too early? It must be noontime somewhere.
"Many firms say that if they don't adequately compensate employees, they risk losing top talent."
Oh oh oh, so it's talent?!?
And all this time we thought it was pure psychopathic greed.
The pay numbers show that firms, benefiting from low interest rates and strong international markets, continue to base their pay on economic and market conditions rather than the level of pressure coming from regulators in Washington and overseas.Oh ok, so economic and market conditions must be good then? And the pay reflects that? Economy good, market conditions good, therefore pay good? Is that the argument?
Aside from this small problem here...
And aside from all this here....
Let’s look at it this way; imagine you live in a large house and you have several roommates to help pay the rent. Some of your roommates are, unfortunately, starving “artists”, or freeloaders, and do not contribute their share. In order to survive, they begin leeching off the people who carry their own weight. This is Globalism, or interdependency.Now, any sane person would either go find more responsible roommates to share a financial situation with, or, they would move out on their own and become independent. According to globalists though, you are not allowed to move out on your own. You are not allowed to become independent. Like a landlord that has the ability to keep you chained to the property, you live on his real estate or none at all. You must stay trapped in that house, in that financial situation, with a bunch of man-child reprobates, and make it work, for the rest of your life. Why must you do this? Globalists never fully explain, but apparently, it is the “natural order of things”, and isolationism is “bad sportsmanship”.
So, you are stuck in this house of shame. What are your options?
A) Threaten lazy roommates with financial reprisal, withholding funds, goods, etc. (This is what globalists call “protectionism”.) However, if you don’t pay your roommate’s end, you don’t meet the rent, putting the whole arrangement at risk of collapse, dragging everyone down into an abyss of homelessness and doom.
B) Become a freeloader yourself. (This is basically what the U.S. and many other countries have done or are in the process of doing. Why support yourself when you can just borrow and spend to your heart’s content. As long as your roommates keep shelling out the dough, you are good to go. They could go protectionist, though, and stop shelling out the dough. Then what do you all do…?)
C) Assassinate roomies, bury in floorboards, keep stuff for yourself (Shooting wars and violence erupt all the time because of trade disputes).
D) Continue on as the dupe who pays for everyone else. (Nobody does this for long, including countries. Eventually, they’ll turn to options A,B, or C…)
Under forced interdependency, the only person that comes out on top is the landlord. Everyone else becomes equally poor. The illusion, again, is that we must remain interdependent. Why not become self sufficient as a country, and refuse to play the game at all? Why not leave the dysfunctional house, flip the landlord the bird, and build your own home that actually works? Because a bunch of banking elites might label you “isolationist”? Who cares! The alternative is a planet of parasites feeding off each other in a progressively destructive and imbalanced global dystopia. Sometimes, people just don’t get along. Forcing them to predicate their very existence on each other against their will is not a recipe for peace, or economic stability; it’s a recipe for disaster.
We deduce that their pay really is based on economic and market conditions.
