Classic American Capitalism at work, screw long term viability for short term profit. It's a wonder any of these companies survive the Harvard Business School dogma

Shut Yo' Mouf, Foo! He's the Man with The Plan!

They should make a $17 coin with his likeness on it - primarily 'cuz that's how many of them it'll take to equal a current quarter - but also because he should take his Harvard Degree in-hand, and Rule us All because of his Superior Superiorness.
