Well, maybe not in cash like piles of $20 bills, but US corporations set a record liquid assets of $1.4T, $1,400,000,000. (Oops, that’s $1,400,000,000,000.) That’s about 10% of US GDP. That makes for healthy contingency funds in case of economic collapses, but it also is the money that could keep an economy healthy through equipment upgrades, R&D, and better employee compensation. Whether that money moves or not is in the control of Boards of Directors. Will fear keep the money close? Or, will an awareness of opportunity encourage the money to move?
