“This is strictly a business decision”
Tim O'Reilly

My only major complaint with the image you create is that you seem to believe the only people driving stock prices to increase are money managers and corporate leaders. Money managers are managing money for funds that are what make up pretty much everyone’s mutual funds, ETF’s, and pretty much every other common investment vehicle used to create retirement portfolios today. Your average retiree needs that stock price to go up to keep their paychecks coming.

I just thought it should be highlighted that it is not nearly as clear-cut as you’ve portrayed it. Unfortunately, those you portray as parasites are also what keeps many who no longer generate income afloat.
