    (This is the sequel to my poll titled, "What is the best way to run a cracker company?" It is my theory that both polls will yield similar results.)

    I bet you will still come up with an excuse as to why you can't answer the question. Option 1 is the only option that makes any sense. If you invested money in a company, I'm sure you would want it to earn a profit. Otherwise you would start a charity instead.
    And the many companies who are non-profit? And the fact that not all companies are corporations? Some are structured to make it the number one fiduciary duty of the CEO to maximize profit, others not so much. There are companies who modify their opportunity for profit with social concerns.

    You display a basic lack of understanding as to business in general in these poll questions.

    I understand that people want more from a ceramic doll company than can be realistically expected. Seriously! I will give you $350 a month for ceramic dolls if you will pay for $5,000,000 in ceramic dolls but you have to do that for everybody else too. What the f*** kind of logic is that? It's ridiculous but this is exactly how a Ceramic Doll consumer behaves. That level of stupidity is highly offensive to me.

    My suggestion is never run a ceramic doll company. Run a polymer and ceramic hybrid doll company instead.

    Many companies, with Amazon being probably the best known, put all revenue into capital improvements and even borrow more to continue to grow. No profit, but still incredibly successful. The business world is far far far far far far far far far far far far far more complex than you seem to realize.

    Were their investors bond holders? Amazon is huge. How did they get capital without the expectation of profit? I'm always open to learn. You certainly have my attention.

    They take out loans, same as most businesses do. Most businesses these days always carry debt.

    There is a bit of a difference between medical insurance and ceramic dolls. No one ever died for lack of a ceramic doll.

    There is no law requiring you buy a ceramic doll.

    There is no law requiring employers give their employees a ceramic doll every month - unless the president says a particular company doesn't have to.
