@Rich: Indeed, but with current working conditions some companies are providing, people aren't interested. Also, productivity is not meaningless unless you take the blueprint and turn it into a fully functional product with dedicated assembly lining. Then it becomes worthy enough to be handled by people (labour force) with adequate abilities.

There are many business models, and whether or not a business model works for a given company can be dry tested before actually using that model. If marketing standards do not allow for flourishing business then these models are at fault, not the technical aspect of the managerial aspect of the company.

Very true. Profound macroeconomic reforms have become urgent to avoid another economic crisis like 2007 crash

Rich...they will have to go up first in US and grow in proportion to productivity of employees. Only then can US have a free market economy

Rich, In last golden age called the golden era of free market capitalism...wages caught up with productivity ensuring balanced economy. However, Then taxes were high on rich...the maximum tax rate on wealthiest Americans was 92%. Today, wages trail productivity. In my upcoming book, I have showed a way to bring back free markets so that wages catch with productivity with low taxes on all Americans and with smaller government.
