The Power of Capitalism

Today, we find that Personal Income rose a large 3.7% in Decemeber. Why? 3.1% of the income was attributible to Microsoft's $3 Special Dividend. Amazing! One dividend nearly as powerful in personal income as all the tax rebates received in Summer 2001. Remember the $300-$600 checks? So, I guess what we really need to do, is find a way to get more people involved in ownership, Hmm I wonder what that could be?
