  •  I'm glad someone mentioned this.. (0+ / 0-)

    Wish it would be part of the community spotlight too.

    There are two parts of the interview I couldn't reconcile.  

    1.  Why is GE gladly JV'ing with a Chinese company and giving away their IP?  Don't they realize that the Chinese don't care about IP, and are reknown for bootlegging and getting away with it?  Does Mr. Immelt realize that all of the thing they make for Boeing will disappear once the Chinese aircraft company starts to make everything in house.  Is their airline manufacturing subsidiary something they plan to sell off too?  Jesus!!

    2.  Why did President Obama make a guy responsible for job creation, when MANY of his ideas (foreign tax holiday, reduction of reglations, lower corp tax rate) are opposed to, his party's platform AND job creation!  Aren't these issues more of a corporate profit enhancer!?

    How fucking stupid do these people think we are?  This is the worst part of the story.. CEOs seem to think Americans have no sense of history or will buy total fabrications or at least decoys from corporate realities.
