Corn Products Grows Profits

Sep 19, 2011

Corn Products, the big company in Argo, Illinois is buying back its own stock. This is the mark of a company with plenty of profits, which it doesn’t want to put into more investment, but instead returns to the stockholders.

The money is there to create jobs. But the owners stop new investment and don’t create jobs.

This capitalist system itself is bankrupt.
