Corporate profit near all time high
Corporate profits are near an all time high.
Quarterly corporate profits have reached 1.6401 trillion dollars or 5500 per person in the US. Corporate profits have grown for 7 consecutive quarters since 2008 Q4.
The large amount of corporate profits can make you question the rising inequality in the United States that goes with it.
Also, if you begin to think about investments open to corporations: dividends, capital investment, or job creating hiring. Obviously the return on people is lower than the return on other investments. So the questions is how to alter the equation.
The Evil Black Economist proposes a job subsidy similar to the R&D subsidy that corporations enjoy. Perhaps not a 100% write off but something similar.
