The reason this particular topic was chosen was due to a recent debate Ben and I were having in the...

How can a wage be determined other than by a market? Is there some inherent value in a wage we do not know about? An objective value, perhaps?

Re: Obama's Pay Cap

A higher wage offered means the market believes you have a certain ability to add profit.

Restricting higher wage earners means you will only attract those who add a related level of profit.
