Subject: [AFEEMAIL] Financial sector profits
Does anyone know a good source for the percent of profits going to the financial sector for differing countries? I know some have written on how much of profits goes to FIRE in the US and how it has increased dramatically over time. I was looking at data for other developed countries if anyone knows.
