  •  The ludicrous is strong in this one... (5+ / 0-)

    Hostess' owners, as you rightly point out, led directly to the downfall of the company.

    It was a clear case of Marxism -- that is to say, the capitalist profit-seeking killing the goose of golden egg fame.

    IOW, seeking short term profits and ignoring long-term value.

    Exactly what Marx predicted, afaik.

    And it won't just be Hostess.  In the long run, it will be every company with overpaid CEOs seeking short-term profits at the expense of long-term value to the corporation.

    I have been watching this unfold since Raygun. And am delighted to see it overtaking those CEOs. Sorry about the workers, of course, b/c I'm one of them...but not too sorry to see the Golden Parachuters become anathema.

    Eventually, even the Hostile Takeover guys will get sucked down the shithole of bankruptcy.

    Couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch.
