U.S. corporations are sitting on over $2 trillion in cash. That's just the cash, or should I say, just the cash they've had to reveal. If corporate leaders used their cash, their operational assets, and their collective mind power to concentrate on finding solutions for the nation's problems, the national debt would disappear in short order. The sky hasn't fallen yet.
On the subject of corporate leaders' reluctance to use the wealth they accumulated from the country during the good times to help out during the good times, does this not look like a gut punch for trickle-down economics theory?
