I think the real question is

I think the real question is why are managers looking for short term profits? Why are they not incentivized to fixed the company and turn it into a source of revenue? Maybe the company was unfixable with too much bad management and/or union baggage. But once taxes and regulation are so costly, fixing a company is hardly worth it. And I can't help think zero interest rates have no part. As low interest rate encourage speculation not long term planning. Manufacturing and family owned businesses are gone because they are not profitable in this country. Let businesses keep their money and there will be far more of them and they won't have to operate on wire thin margins.
