„In an April study, the international Monetary Fund concluded that the share of national income paid to workers has been falling since the 1980s across advanced economies. Even in the emerging world, some countries, most of all China, have seen meaningful declines in this ratio as well, even as poverty has been significantly reduced. That means wages haven’t kept pace with gains in productivity, as economies says they should, and that a greater amount of income is beeing earned through the use of capital. In other words, investors are winning out over workers.“
