Talking about the employers group, it is useful to differentiate between big companies based on capital like share-holder companies and the mentioned individually owned firms.
The first ones should recognise the dangers of destroying one's very fundamentals of economic acting by manipulating shares' prices for short-term reasons. This destruction becomes visible e.g. in the loss of share-holders' confidence or in the belated realisation that when capital does not render profits anymore and one has to generate products or services again, one needs employees for that. Not really necessary for long-term strategies are "visions" or some other illusions but clear images of the goals to attain.
Personal owners of enterprises obviously don't have any influence on the markets and they know best themselves, how to act profitable. Do they? - Perhaps there is a potential field of activity for associations or government bodies. The chambers e.g. could foster their information services about laws and governments could urge customers - including themselves - to pay bills in due time.

Employees do not have any but a passive role in solving the problems either: most of them are not free to spend their income voluntarily. But the "haves" among them should know that biting for more may eventually lead to loosing the ostensibly defended status. For the German social state is obliged to transfer income to "have-nots"; if "haves" do insist on their status, they simply will be made redundant to a greater extent and the ones left have to finance even more "have-nots".
Within the German framework of autonomous negotiations about wages and salaries between employers' associations and trade-unions, questions of distribution may therefore become relevant again: perhaps not only between the two parties but between the wage-earners.
