The Conservatives committed in 2017 to a major independent study of whether share buybacks inflate executive pay or reduce investment. The result: they don’t. Good to see evidence-based policy vindicated instead of Labour’s knee-jerk left-wing populism.
This study finds that share buybacks are NOT associated with lower business investment, as many people claim.
New government commissioned study finds share buybacks aren’t used to inflate executive pay and don’t crowd out investment.
