  •  Not if it can still get them on top. (2+ / 0-)

    What the laissez-faire crowd doesn't understand is that the prospect of being on top will be enough to motivate most people, at least if "on top" is high enough.  "On top" could be a tenth as high as it is now and it'd still be a big motivator.  Would you really be less motivated to make half a billion bucks than you'd be to make five billion?  Either one is more than you could ever spend.

    The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early; don't mistake an unfulfilled dream for a lost one. A dream has no deadline!
