Why is the behavior of stock companies so different from the behavior of proprietorships and partnerships.

Why are closely held companies so much more focused on the long term, and stock companies so focused on next quarter results and boosting the stock price right now?

Medical innovation that improves peoples lives?
Or does that research largely focus on gaming the patent system to extract the largest rents from the most inefficient system on the planet.

If your stock is performing that poorly, sell it. If you are not allowed a vote, sell the stock.

In the long run, stock companies perform. That is why people buy their stock.

The US leads the world in medical innovations. How ever you want to slice it.

Interesting to note that the major western country with the most nationalised of the health services is second on the list.

In a free country, I'm free to oppose money and power addicts, and I do, and I will continue my opposition.

Our country, our free country, has always had to contend with those on the private side who want to gather unto themselves WAY more than any sane person would want. These people are diseased. They suffer from addiction.

And yet, they've convinced tens of millions that their addictions are OK, and more, that any criticism of their addictions is "un-American."

We've got to shake these folks off of our backs, if it's not too late and it may be.
