Wealth Shift: The Decline of Ethics in America

Preface

Although many of the topics that I discuss in Wealth Shift have begun receiving media attention lately, virtually no one has drawn an accurate line between cause and effect. We see the smoke and feel the tremors, but the volcano is still very much in place – worse than ever and ready to erupt again at a moment’s notice. For example, nobody seems to be able to identify what is wrong with the current state of executive compensation. One side argues “excessive” while the other side argues “reasonable”, when the real problem is one of structure.

While my first attempts to pull these concepts together in some sort of written format occurred sometime in the mid-1990s, since then, I have come to realized that certain aspects of Wealth Shift tend to mutate and evolve such that footnotes to the material are required.  For this reason, I have decided to present Wealth Shift in the following format so that I can continue to update the information as often as necessary for it to remain timely, immediately relevant, and, best of all, free of all monetary constraints.
