How much is capitalism booming? This much. Corporate profits are at record highs. And that means that megacorporations are literally making so much money that they have nowhere left to put it. Not a single place. It’s not just that they have nothing to invest it in. It’s that after buying jets, lavishing their CEOs with hundred million dollar packages, and building gleaming billion dollar headquarters, they still can’t find anything to do with all the money they’re making. Hence, there’s only thing left they can do. Give it back to shareholders. So share buybacks are skyrocketing — at precisely the same time that suicide rates are.
