Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


What will happen if the blue wave became real?  Perhaps Democrats like Senator Elizabeth Warren are giving the nation a clear clue.

Let’s change the compensation structure for the CEOs to say that the CEOs will not be permitted to juice the [stock] price, and then once they juice the price, make a quick sale, make a bazillion dollars, and keep emphasizing the incentives,” she said to CNBC.

The Massachusetts Democrat introduced the Accountable Capitalism Act, which would require corporations with more than $1 billion in annual revenue to obtain a federal charter.

But if passed, couldn’t those capital requirement levels be later changed?  So all others should be watching this too.


The video discussion posted above shows the pros-can-cons to this concept.

But a simple thumbnail analysis is this.  Should a bill like this become law, it could well drive capital off-shore all over again.
