Regarding the JD post, I agree with the main point. The government has no business sticking their nose into what businesses do with SHAREHOLDER money. Including buybacks. What’s next? Dividends under attack?
Actually the Schumer-Sanders op-ed does criticize dividends too. 🙄
I’ll bet all those underfunded public employee pension funds don’t agree.
I’m just wondering if anyone here got wealthy or had their income inequality reduced because of something the government did for them - or was it because you invested your own money?
