Default Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece

I feel unrealistic growth expectations are often generated by the stock market, the price of jets, bentleys and bonuses. On that front, I do take the leftist view. But I concede it could be almost anything, as businesses are as varied as those who run them.

I'm sure that unrealistic growth expectations are varied.

I disagree that the majority of US firms follow anything close to this, as evidenced by disproportionate compensation structures, and priorities.
Since you haven't offered any evidence of disproportionate compensation structures, and priorities I guess that's just a bunch of ungrounded supposition. Kinda like your mindreading activities.

Yeah, the overcompensated and over extended owners needed to cash out, and as usual, let the workers twist. But hey 66% is good if your salary goes up 1000%. If my success rate was that low I'd be in a bread line, but different strokes for different socio-economic strata right?
Well, I suppose that owners have a variety of options since they have the responsibility. If a company closes well that's too bad for the workers. They had no legal guarantee that the company would exist in perpetuity.

Just what I said. The owners of the businesses would talk glowingly about the employees being like a family, while rolling back the odometer on everything to make the company look sweet on paper for an eventual sale that benefitted only them. Most people bought the warm and fuzzy and ended up out in the cold. Me, not so much.
I guess this is the answer to the Bush reference. Again, what obligation did the company owners have other than to pay the employees what was owed them? I have never worked for a company that said their employess were like family.
