Editorial With HP's high-flying CEO Carly Fiorina departing, the company's woes are well known. But how did a firm with such a storied history and vast assets get headed down the wrong path, and what do they need to do to set their course straight?

Part of bigger problem

IMHO, this is a perfect example of a larger ill in the capitalist world. The never ending bottom line (fudge) factor, the pressure to drive the stock price higher by having bigger bottom lines every 3 months. This is pushing upper (mis-)management types to do Stupid Things. The quality of products is getting worse (cheaper) instead of better for the same price. Etc.
