Capital Wins, Labor Loses, But Andrew Smithers Says It Can't Go On
That graph isn't a complete picture, though. You see that labor shares exploded during the great depression, which was not a great time to be a worker. What's important is to compare that graph along with the other current economic realities I'm sure you know, the unemployment, slow GDP growth, and stagnating wages. Those profit margins exploded while everything else in the economy went south.
Just think that my only practical alternative to Obama in 2012 was to vote for a guy who would have favored corporations more. In the midst of all the yakking about gun control, Libya, and whatever else is the hot ticket of the day, I always keep in mind that no one important seems to give a crap about this.
