In other news, HP announced today that it will be cutting over 27,000 jobs as part of a restructuring plan to "cut costs."

HP CEO Meg Whitman came very close to being the governor of California.

    Meg Whitman was CEO of eBay, but former HP CEO Carly Fiorina nearly became a US Senator. One of my favorite Fiorina quotes, in response to a question about outsourcing high-paying technical jobs to India (paraphrasing): “Americans don’t have a God-given right to a job.”

    Wonder how many jobs could be “saved” with a reasonable executive pay structure?

    Big Business can’t cut its way to prosperity, either. Never could.
