Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@elizabethv  The greed gets to them. There are a few people with lots of money that are not heartless, such as some actors and musicians, including Bono and I'd like to squeeze Brad Pitt in here. Guess they are not corporations. However, you do hear of the occasional story where a CEO of a corporation pays for people's weddings or makes sure they don't get paid any more than what their workers do. How long these corporations last though is another question.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Michelle I'm always looking for the "like" button on these comments. lol  Joking aside, I am also ready for that short-term gig. As the old saying goes: "The rich get richer." I've never seen a statement more true.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@srufolo1 - In my "anti-coporations" belief system, I generally see most people with that kind of money as heartless. Perhaps it takes that kind of "heartlessness" to get there. As for people who think keeping homeless out of tents will solve the problem of homelessness - they lack the understanding for why people lose their homes to begin with. His view makes perfect sense when you look at who he is and where he comes from.

Re: Yahoo CEO Exits
@Michelle - I'd be good with a short term, well-paying CEO gig. Who's hiring?

Mayer had qualifications that got her the job, I'm sure. They didn't just hire her because she already had money and didn't need more.

Yahoo was THE search engine in my high school years until a little company called Google came along and turned their name into a verb.

@Mike I will take all of the blame for Yahoo's woes if it means I get that kind of money.

@Ariella Yeah, she didn't NEED to work at all when she took the job.

 

I think I'm ready for a short-term CEO gig that pays well...

@Ariella  Most powerful couple, also apparently a most heartless couple. http://gizmodo.com/marissa-mayers-husband-donated-2-500-to-screw-over-the-1787724913

@srulofo1 In truth, she would have been sitting pretty even without this. Her husband is Zachary Bogue, who is worth a few hundred mil in his own right.
