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.

No the essence of that game is that each institution (company) will always need to prove itself by showing it is serving its customers.

It is a 'good' thing that companies fail and collapse.
It means they are not serving their customers and their failure means someone else can come in and do that job.

This is far better than other systems which try and reform institutions as the self-interest and competence of those in the institution are always a barrier.


If Microsoft falls, it is a good thing.
If it reforms and does well, it is a good thing.

It it doesn't reform and is protected by government somehow, then it is not a good thing.
