I'm a professional buyer Keith, so know the scenario all too well. It's useless to point the finger at
one political party or the other. Wall St has gotten out of control and there are deep personal incentives in play to take advantage of the public. Part of my own success even in the depth of the
recession was simply to avoid distributing products of publicly-traded companies. Too much smoke and mirrors just to get a few people on top rich quick. Big corporate headhunters still try to recruit
me, but the reason I do things well in my own tiny niche is because I believe in supplying my own
customers with reliable things that will help them become more productive and profitable - a ridiculously old fashioned plan that still works every time. But none of these marketing monkey MBA's
want to hear that kind of thing. Apparently neither does Kodak.
