Employers Used to Believe in the Power of Aggregate Demand, What Happened?

From the Thom Hartmann Show Thursday:

Thom discusses the change in America’s business community from being good corporate citizens who saw their employees as assets to today’s atmosphere where corporations exploit whatever they can. 

Thom speaks with guest Rick Wartzman (Author – “The End of Loyalty: The Rise and Fall of Good Jobs in America”, Director – KH Moon Center for a Functioning Society, Drucker Institute, Claremont University, and Contributor – Fortune Magazine) about what caused the widespread prosperity in post war American, where it went, and who took it away.

The video is about 11.5 minutes. The exchange helped answer a lot of questions. As maybe many others have experienced here, in my working days employees went from an asset to an expense that must be controlled to the utmost.
