Microsoft In business school the first thing they teach you about CEOs is: it is the CEO’s job to increase the shareholder value of the company. Since taking the position Ballmer has decreased shareholder value, as reflected by stock price, by -56.63%. That. Is. Not. Good . . . Microsoft should be searching for a new CEO right now.

"creative distruction"... that's rather optimistic. ;-)

The essence of that game is burning debt. You make debts, you use debt to get actual wealth, you transfer actual wealth to you via proxy, you don't pay debt and promise your creditors you won't do that again (never ever !) and start over.

That's the essence of it ;-) And that works if you can steal from poor people while will turn into bloodshed if you rob your sibiling.

And about taxes, come on! ;-) Such companies don't pay taxes at all and when they are required to do that, they file for bankruptcy ;-)
