    If America Was a Company......

    ..... and run by Two sides that act like Republicans and the other like Democrats... and this includes ALL the spin doctors....
    When you put that company up with others, such as what you see in the Forbes Top 500, what do you feel would happen?


    I personally see not the good of the Company but 90% of the time, for the good of ONE side of Top Management over the OTHER side of Top Management. And as this goes on I see the company that lies and screws its employees. I also see a company that can not compete against other companies. I can see BOTH sides of Top Management ETERNALLY trying to blame and destroy the OTHER side of Top Management, while the good of the WHOLE company becomes ripped apart in a power struggle. And as this happens... the whole company becomes disfunctional. Its doesnt FOCUS on sales. Doesnt FOCUS on working together to get the job done.
    I see a company that will NOT last and should not last.

    While other companies internally work for success in a professional manner..... they compromise and listen to ALL departments to achive a common goal...

    If the President/CEO could fire every single executive who disagreed with him and replace them with people who supported his vision for the country/company, governance would actually be pretty easy.

    Neither is expecting a country to act like a company. There is no such thing as monetary policy within a company.

    That is only a piece of it. They have no control over taxation, the currency, or inflation (not total control, but much more input than a company has) while a country does.

    Than the concept of this thread is wrong.

    For example, if the country can spend at a certain % deficit, yet still minimize debt because of things like economic growth and inflationary targets. A company cannot do that.

    Then what do you want to discuss?

    The country is not a company and doesn't work like a company. You seem to get that, but say it's not the question. Yet if someone says the country isn't a company, you say it's also not the concept of this thread.

    So the question is "What if America was a company....but it was also not a company?"

    In that case, the answer is that I'd take another hit and fire up seamless web to order some nachos.
