Employee ownership, the wealth gap, and the current crisis

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), one of the most conservative members of Congress, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), one of the most liberal, have both introduced sweeping proposals to broaden employee ownership in the U.S. That surprising fact testifies to just how practical—and urgent—this idea is. Too many Americans have too little wealth. Just over 20 percent of all Americans have no wealth at all. Forty percent of Americans cannot cover a financial emergency with available cash, forcing them to need to borrow money, put it on a credit card, raid their retirement accounts (if they have one), or other less than optimal choices. Only about half the working age population has retirement savings of any kind.
