The late 70s saw the most equal time in British history, but since then the rich have got richer and the poor poorer.
Does anyone at all want to try and back up that assertion? That the poor in Britain are now, by any absolute standard that you want to use, poorer than the poor were in late 1970s Britain?
in the past decade the average bonus for FTSE 350 directors rose by 187% while share prices declined by 71%.
Did share prices decline by that much? Can\’t recall that they were three times higher than they are now. Not that I pay much attention to share prices mind.
