PROFIT MARGINS – U.S. VS EU

  • While US companies have used their growing market power for profit to raise prices, limit wage growth, and dramatically increase overall net earnings in recent years, profit rates in the EU have remained relatively unchanged for the last 25 years.
  • The fact is that in smoothly functioning markets profits are supposed to be minimal because any excess should attract competitors and force price reductions.
