lol i see we painted ourselves a nice rosy picture, where we got ourselves a hard-working owner who takes risks. but why we talking about them? for most part, owners are either mom and pop shop keepers (and no one wud grudge them their earnings), or small-pension-shareholders (who earn measly amounts in their mutual funds).

That's easy to explain.
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c. top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.


what we shud actually be talkin about are the top execs of companies they dint start. that's the main problem we got. it seem to me these blue suits take nowhere the level of risk that wud be commensurate with their earnings.it's not even all performance-based with them. that dont happen on wall street where numbers are objective and measurable... yet people can and do get ahead because of non-performance factors.

Oh! I got this. This is easy as 1-2-3.
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c.
top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.


[U}when we talk of value generation, we also gotta be clear what value we talkin about. is it value to larry flynt and penthouse? lol.[/U] come on, he sees value pimpin women in his tabloid. his girls make a million bucks or so for the fine art of being able to lie spread-eagled on some bed wearing frilly laces. perfectly justifiable you wud say, right?does he deserve his hundreds of millions? do the chicks deserve the mill? lol.

C'mon! I can't believe you are making these silly points. This one, by far, is the easiest of all to explain.
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c.
top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.


see [U} there's ethical societal value and there's business value to a pimp or someone who knows how to pander or pull a fast one on people[/U]. i am all for people who create ethical societal value, not people who can get paid fortunes because of somethin notorious they did.

Dude, you are just not getting it. The response is clear as crystal.
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c.
top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.


coming to wall street bankers, what risks do they take? heads, they make millions. tails, at worst they lose their jobs, but find another one because they got experience lol (albeit a losing one at that). it aint their own money they were plying to begin with. its same thing with so many of the execs.

Scams on wall street? Who cares? It's irrelevant. You are missing the big picture. It's all about
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c.
top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.


based on my observations, there's very few owners who really create societal value that get paid huge sums (more power to them i say). that's a red herring and it's distraction talking about them. we shud be talking about others who get ahead big without creating much value. that's what's sick about the system we got. it's the rare case where we got an owner who creates value and where he gets paid big. that i got no problem with.

Nice try. But you are forgetting something
a. supply and demand
b. take it or leave it
c.
top management risks all
d. people who make tons of money are brilliant and hard working.
e. people at the bottom of the totem pole are some lazy dimwits.




I've made some of these reductio ad abusrdums in the past. But this one takes the cake. LOL
