38. Strong Labor
A strong labor movement is critical. Very progressive taxes are critical. Trust-busting is critical. Expensing of stock options is critical.

A law in regard to the maximum multiple or the number of times more a CEO is paid above the lowest paid worker is critical.

A very substantial increase in the minimum wage is critical.

An end to corporate and personal off-shore tax havens is critical.

Corporate reform so that piercing the "corporate veil" is simple when officers and directors perpetrate fraud is critical.

An end to corporate welfare and competitive tax incentive bidding for business is critical.

The list goes on.
