I strongly disagree with this point. One of the problems that I see with
the "liberalization" of economies that have been forced upon every
country in the world is that there is no liberalization of labor
movement. It is crucial for the balance of a liberal system that not
only capital and goods flow universaly but that labor follow it.
Let the workers move to where work is. The US won't let that happen
because wages will drop enoumously, but hey! it's just what happens with
the price beans when a country enters world markets, except is goes
up...no one is complaining about that here.
The European empire has adopted this rule for the closest colonies.

Agreed. Progressive income tax. Another good solution is increased
liability proportional to salary because so many CEOs make so much money
and leave the company broken.
