Can anyone make sense of this chart? It appears that while the nation was slowly murdered, gasping, heaving coughing blood, the corporations were swimming in money, partying on the Titanic as it were. As the nation dies, the fortunes of the corporations go through the roof. It appears that the corporations are getting rich as they slowly murder the country. The more the sickens and dies, the richer the corporations get.
But can someone explain what’s going on. Why did the collapse of US exports lead the soaring of corporate profits. There appears to be a connection. What is it? Offshoring?
