Today, Don't Focus on the Bottom Line. Look Where That's Gotten Us.
One of the most disturbing things about the current economic problems is that no one is questioning the basic premises upon which the whole thing is founded. The CEOs are still responsive to the stockholders, and the stockholders want the highest return. So we all get to go down the tubes together with the responsibility spread among millions of small stock holders who individually don't feel like they can do anything. But we can. Direct your miniscule savings into things you really care about. You may not be guaranteed the high returns of the past, but nothing can do that right now anyway.
