Can you site an example of where the market overpays for one person and unpays another? Why is that the case?

And I notice you don't bother to tell us why that is the case.

It's government intervention in the market, failure to enforce immigration laws and a failed education system that doesn't use the free market. The disparity is the result of failed socialist policies, not a free market.

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen

It is self evident!! The

It is self evident!! The hard working unskilled person deserves much more! And the over the top executive much less!

There is not enough "food" for all, so countries are in a fierce competition for attracting investment! Of course  government intervention in the market plays a role! Some governments don't give a fuck about their people! And I'm also talking about the IMF and WTO when I talk about intervention!

Ah! enforce immigration laws!? This is the ridiculous, most coercive, most hypocritical side to globalization. So a company can freely roam the world seeking for a heaven for it's greed. But a single person Oh no, not a single person! The single person seeking to improve his life can't roam freely in the world!! The problem is the disparity in laws between countries, not government intervention, not free market!

If I was given a choice to choose an economic system I would choose the northern Europe one. You've said the average standard of living is better in USA than in any other country! No! I would rather live in: Norway; Denmark; Germany; Sweden; Finland; France; Switzerland; Luxembourg; UK; Netherlands; Canada... the only problem with these countries is the cold Sticking out tongue

What's with the "pretends"? I'm not sure if I should be offended by that or not.

Probably shouldn't; it's the internet, I didn't insult you personally, etc. However I left most of my train of thought behind all this earlier today.

My gripe is with the individuals and organizations you stand behind -they are certainly pro-coercion. That's all..

Good to know. I'm still confused about which individuals and organizations I stand behind. Please let me know which organization agrees with me so I can give them money. I find precious few people in the country who agree with me and even fewer still who are politically active. You threw out Scott Walker in the other thread, but at best I supported him in general principal on one issue. That is a far cry from endorsing him.   

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

Koch Industries, Scott Walker. All because they advanced a "union-busting" legislation that has only a small part of it about unions. This is going to be a lot of fun once it gets to judiciary levels. Unions can be very expensive though, you're right about that. They end up forcing a company to subsidize a sickly, pushing-80 something worker long after they've contributed a damn to society. If they get renal failure because of something that happened at the plant, dum-du-dumdum. Dialysis filters cost a pretty penny these days... it makes plastic surgery.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)
