    This is your opinion. Unfortunately, the conversation doesn't stop with it.

    Whether this company we are speaking of is a corporation making profit for share holders that are invested through 401K's, or whether they are smaller concerns that are making a profit to sustain future growth, and business, profit is not a dirty word.
    I don't think it's a dirty word. I think you're projecting.

    And to think that someone looks at this laughable statement from Obama as anything but campaigning, Obama has NO hand in what a business does, other than say GM, and Chrysler, but
    The intent behind his statement was about campaigning. I don't think anyone disagrees with this. However, intention is not measure of truth or validity.

    if you think there is some moral responsibilty to share their profits, make less so that they can spread it around, you are mistaken, and it is quite a socialist ideal for you to be espousing here.
    I never said there was a moral responsibility and you can't scare me into agreeing with you by misusing the word socialist.

    He's just trying to boost his ratings. He can ask them all he ants and unless there is adequate profit there, they won't hire anyone; they would be cutting their own throats.

    Re: Obama Tells Companies to 'Step Up' and Hire Workers

    Question for you TPD;

    Is it Ethical for a company to risk other peoples money, investors, just increase the number of employee's it has for more altruistic reasons rather then economic ones?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, if the risk is the same as it is when the company gives the same amount of other people's money away to charities or political campaigns.
