and this perhaps changes what metrics are crucial.

Companies that now borrow super cheap and then use the money to buy back shares or to fund R&D and capital plant that gives them real competitive value are doing their shareholders a favor.

Those that borrow to pay higher dividends and to pursue management follies will be setting their owners up for a terrible fall (no need to speak of the hapless bondholders if we shift to noticeable monetizing of debt).

ATT makes an interesting test case?
