Right now in the US official reports and media try to claim out of psychological convenience that a little over 50% of revenue is going to labor or employees. Remember that from WWII to 1970 as part of the Social Security Act negotiations that number was locked in at 75% going to labor. Initially there wouls have been nothing going to capital but capital begged for a 40hrs vice 28 hrs work week to provide what often turned out to be its often parasitic 25%.
But the recent 2008 census survey showed that only 34% is going to staff-labor-employees. Simply for balance, to keep the peace and stability labor’s share for large firms needs to be locked in at 50%. If automation rids a firm of labor than the tax will take up labor’s share for redistribution. Labor has never been a market. People can’t sell themselves.
Allowings idiots to do what they want with money is not freedom anymore than allowing them to do what they want with bullets would be freedom. Bad actions have to get proper feedback.
