Re: <nettime> Nightmare or Opening? the Soros perspective


And as historian Harold Perkin noted, most of the people we now refer to
as 'capitalists' make most of their money from hugely inflated salaries.
Whilst they may own shares, their control of capital lies in their
'control' of public companies, rather than in their direct 'ownership' of
them.
