Asymmetrical Information

I agree with all those leftist intellectuals that it's scandalous that some people should make money because they have and can manipulate information that other people don't. And thus, first things first, let's start solving the problem with the worst offenders: the information professionals. I propose that university professors, journalists, authors, talk show hosts, "artists", and other lesson-givers should be mandated by law to never be paid more than a janitor. Of course they will agree, since they are not motivated by money, this evil thing, but by the love of other people (or is it the love of "nature" at the expense of other people?)
