    Now that is something I have never thought about. The only issue I can see is that the Post Office is already so busy and the increase in patronage would almost certainly mean hiring new employees which they are not fond of doing. Also, the desire for the public to work at the Post Office would likely decline in my estimation due to the general consensus of retail work being extremely undesirable as a career path.

    Reading this startling fact makes me think “Wow, we must be close to a revolution” but then I remember that the poor people who would lead and attend this revolution cannot afford to miss work to accomplish it.

    I know exactly why he doesn’t give his stock away. He would forfeit his controlling interest in his own company. One could argue however that since Facebook is now public that no one person actually owns it but one could also argue that it is counter productive to make a company public and retain a majority stake in said company. On a more personal note, I really hate Facebook and everything it represents. Where I come from it is a platform for promiscuity, blind partisan political grandstanding, electronic fistfights and ever cheapening business advertisements.

    Trickle down doesn’t work. It only increases the wages of company executives. Put simply, the more money put to the bottom line will end up in executive level bonuses and stock dividends. When a company does well, the last thing a company is looking to do is increasing wages because whatever the real cause of increased profits, the company will default to “why would we increase wages when we did so well with them at their current levels?”
