WhyKnot: um...i hope people realize that the executive don't put the profits in their pockets...they pay shareholders and reinvest the money. Shareholders are me and you...our 401Ks...essentially when corporations do good, your retirement increases...why don't people understand that?
HeadLever: Ishkur: Besides, GE isn't going anywhere so long as they don't pay any taxes.They pay some taxes, albeit a very small amount compared to their income. If you want to change that, then get rid of the deductions they are eligible for. However, be aware that tax policy is one of the government's favorite social engineering tools.

CEOs move the company in a direction that will maximize profit over the next few years, then leave with the obscene amount of money they made while the company flounders due to the unsustainable direction it took.
