Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown has a plan for helping American workers: prohibit “excessive” buybacks and require companies to offer each employee $1 for every $1 million spent on stock repurchases.

His plan fails for three big reasons:

1) It is a classic example of government overreach.

2) It is difficult to define which companies and employees are subject to this law.

3) It ignores basic economics.


Brown believes that too much money has been spent on corporate buybacks and not enough on the employees. He used the example of JPMorgan ChaseJPM, -0.18%   to explain how his legislation works: the bank bought about $20 billion of its own stock in 2018, so each of its employees should get a dividend of $20,000.
