Class war?

You should point out this is an American article about the American economy.
Also I fail to see anything class related, more big corporates vs the people.

Corporations tend to be global, and big corporations vs the people tend to be about class.

We could a post about Tesco & Sainsbury and the rest taking part in the government's workfare scheme to make it more UK relevant I suppose.

The point is, can you see who profits out of the western world's current economic crisis?

Also, what do you mean by corporate profits? Before or after R&D for example, this is a very big part of epxenditure for a number of high tech firms.

Well in a recession it's whoever has money and is in the 'black' that profits as they have the money to buy up smaller struggling 'assets' that are going cheap. Nothing new to this and not limited to the western economies either.
In the same way the people who were 'smart' enough to prepare for such a crisis, would be capable of weathering the storm and those even more 'smarter' will profit from it.

Corporate PROFITS?
I do not have a problem with any company or person who is making reasonable or even good profits, when it is used for R&D, company expansion or stabilisation and is not at the expense jobs.

When it is just so that some bod at the top can take home an outrageous bonus at the expense or instead of the above when they are already being paid more than a fair salary for what they do, that is when it becomes part of the class war.
Sad to say there is more of it about. For some time now we have being turning into a society of haves and have nots.
The question I have been asking for some time is what do the corporate co think will happen when the people at the other end are sick of paying for their snobbery.
