The Incredible Disappearing Stock Market

The number of public owned stocks listed on US stock exchanges has declined almost 50% since 1996, with a slight uptick recently that probably won't last long. There are two main reasons for this -- private equity firms, so called vulture capitalists, putting up the money for operations like Space-X that are not subject to the regulations and required public financial accounting that publicly-held stock companies are required to provide, and even [...]
