Corporate Profits and the Culture of Dependency

http://www.theatlantic.com/business/...conomy/273687/

Corporate profits are at an all time high. And this writer is treating it as if it were bad news.

This is the culture of dependency at work. Instead of buying stock in companies and grabbing yourself a share of those record high profits, people have to complain that companies aren't doing a good enough job passing down the profits to....their employees?

Ah, yes. The family living to paycheck to paycheck just needs to throw what little money they have into a wildly unregulated financial market where normal investors hardly ever know what's actually happening...

It's almost too easy!
