The Dow Jones industrial average rose to within 75 points of a record high last week, marking what has become a "golden age for corporate profit" while millions of Americans are still unable to find work, Nelson Schwartz writes. Corporate profits accounted for 14.2% of national income in the third quarter, the most since 1950. The portion of that income paid to workers was 61.7%, close to the lowest amount since 1966.
