Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect evaluates a policy paper issued by Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio wants capitalists and shareholders to focus more on real investment and less on share buy- backs. The Senator is not clear on how to get there from here. And he does not seem to want more public investment. He voted for the 2017 Republican tax cut that gave tons of money to rich people, owners, and investors. That handout has not done much to change behavior or raise the kind of investment that is needed to provide good jobs and to do important work for the environment and infrastructure.
