Yahoo hired a new CEO. Yahoo was a once-promising tech company headed for bankruptcy. They mismanaged delicious, but did find a greater fool to buy it and totally wreck it.
The new CEO may pursue a questionable merger with a struggling Netflix. Netflix is another once-promising company headed for failure. Why? Seeing Netflix’ success, the media corporations are jacking up the fees they charge Netflix. With a State copyright monopoly, media corporations may charge arbitrarily high fees and ruin Neftlix’ profitability.
Imagine if a new CEO gave an honest speech?
As your new CEO, I am committed to maximizing the value of my stock options while pretending to create value for shareholders.
I will pursue questionable buyouts, to inflate earnings and cover up problems.
I am committed to using every possible accounting trick.
When necessary, I will commit fraud and rob customers.
I will make sure that all my subordinates are evil and/or spineless. If my scams fail and I get caught, I will deflect blame to them while pretending to be incompetent.
I have what it takes to succeed in America’s modern economy. I’m a better person than you are. That’s why I’m paid the big bucks while you’re struggling to make ends meet.
I really should attempt “Promote freedom via comedy.”
