2. Good luck with that...
As long as CEO's continue to "make" 100x+ the salaries of their average worker...
As long as companies prefer to make money in the financial casino rather than from what their core business is...
As long as American companies continue to ignore American workers in favor of cheap labor abroad...
As long as American companies dole out stock options as if they are worthless pieces of candy....
As long as American companies ignore innovation...
As long as American financial markets place greed over value....
As long as idiots continue to play the market shorts and longs instead of investing in value...

...I'll pass. They stole my 401k. They are thieves. Fuck 'em.
