Goldman Sachs thinks they've spotted an economic anomaly – and they're warning it may force the firm to redefine the nature of capitalism itself.

In a research note, produced by a team of analysts and released earlier this year to clients, the firm highlights the fact that profit margins in the United States and elsewhere are historically high and that they may remain that way for a long time – especially when it comes to companies engaged in mergers, acquisitions, and stock buybacks.

Why?
