Paul, Jared, you obviously didn’t read or think about the comment. Businesses that look beyond quarterly profits tend to create strategies and plans for yearly, five-year and decade spans. They try to avoid being “bad news.” They don’t get CEO’s pushed out of a job because of protests. Good business isn’t a “dictatorship of the proletariat” or “government control,” it’s a way of making long-term success despite an occasional bad quarter due to losses or costs anticipated in certain quarters. The lack of long-term thought turned Xerox into a dollar-stock while IBM pivoted to the internet and is still a major player.
Soap boxes are for the extremists, the “true believers.” I hope you’re enjoying your soapboxes.
