Granted in the long term, the expectation is any excess business income (profits) will go to the people in dividends as well as reinvest in the business (which grows stock price and is eventually returned to the shareholder anyway), but in the short term it does matter as it's personal cash flow we need to look at.......
After a very long day, this is all I read, redundancy alert, life has to much reading and fine print for me to take the time to read all that.
Not to mention, I have no clue what you're replying to..."all income"?..."individual income"? - What post of mine are you responding to?
Is this another "median isn't an average" moment?
That said, the
shareholders, aka "investor class", are largely the top 1%.
I suspect in referencing "personal cash flow" you're breaching the topic of velocity/ money supply.
For my take on the topic,Google "Marriner Eccles poker chip
Then, for fun, look at some consumer debt charts over the last three decades.
