    plundered by the upper echelons.

    Why would anyone invest in a company run so poorly for the benefit of a few at the top? Who would volunteer their hard earned dollars so that they could be passed off to an overpaid failed executive? This is the real mystery. Why do average Americans "invest" in such smoke and mirrors? Those at the top make money, the brokers make money, the rank and file investors and employees- not so much. From what I can tell, they don't even appear to pay dividends (correct me if I'm wrong).

    If a company doesn't pay dividends then IMO, what someone is "investing" in is simply public perception of a stock and its value and potential future performance so that some day in a misty future you can sell the stock to a 'greater fool" and make a profit.
