jso2897: clancifer: I can see the Libertarian crowd not finding any issues with these CEOs and their greed.

Well, Libertarians practice a sort of "no true Scotsman" philosophy as regards capitalism. Whenever capitalism manifests it's evil, ugly side, they magically reclassify it as "crony capitalism", which they then classify as statist in nature, and thus construe all the evils of capitalism as "not-capitalism".
It's an impressive bit of mental gymnastics.
It's kind of like how people like to pretend that drunken pedophile Uncle Ernie isn't really part of the family.

Pretty sure CNN, MSNBC, et al are the prime drivers of use around terms like crony capitalism. So you're arguing CNN and MSNBC are libertarians?

I always find it odd that leftists like throwing around "greed" so much. Must all be religious wackos. Greed is a religious term.

fusillade762: ecmoRandomNumbers: fusillade762: 1. Edward S. Lampert

There's a shocker.

He's that Ayn Rand piece of shiat, right?

Yeah. The one that ran Sears into the ground.

Correlation meet causation. Sears (along with JC Penny, etc) were all destined to tank during the depression/recession. Their products aren't really better than Kohl's or Target, but cost more. If you want something nice, you still go to Mens Warehouse or whatever. They're in a shrinking, pointless market.

Should have waited on the last post to add these:

"Ursula Burns made headlines in 2009 when she became the first African-American woman CEO of a Fortune 500 company."

Affirmative action hires are generally unqualified and cause negative morale? You don't say.

"Forever 21 employees commented on Glassdoor that they receive minimum wage, often have to work late into the night and get very little time off."

It is almost like they're working a retail job... which are exclusively for people between the ages of 15 and 21.

"The company allegedly forced employees to reveal confidential medical information in order to be allowed sick days."

You had to bring in a doctor's note if you were sick? What does he think this is, a government job? Public school?

"One store manager on Glassdoor advised upper management to "Get over yourselves. Get rid of Mike, revamp the board, bring on all new upper management from execs, directors, and RM's. Learn to pay employees a salary to actually live on.""

Are employees dying in the stores? I don't get it.

Elvis Presleys Death Throne: Color me shocked: HuffPo printed a "worst of" list that includes minorities, women and foreigners. Prove to me that one of them's gay and I'll eat a bucket of shiat.

I hope you're hungry

SpinStopper: Why just current CEOs?  Any list of the worst CEOs really isn't complete without Czarly Fiorina ;)

What kills me is that when she was running for office on her business credentials, no one ever called her on it. I would have asked her point blank why we should elect her if she couldn't succeed at selling rebranded iPods in 2004.

Empty H: So, somebody took a bunch of info from Glassdoor and made it into a slideshow.

And it took two writers to do it!

Why does the link go to a page that has a link to see what this headline refers to? Just link the actual page, dummies.

Only because Dick Fuld is unemployed.
