US Corporations are emerging as the new religion of the 21st century. Bow before the alter of finance, power, greed and corruption - where monetary policy replaces prayer, and redemption arrives only when Wall Street results exceed analysts' expectations.
CFO: "If we can successfully promote 3,800 full time staff to the Adaptive-NS contract position of consultant resource specialist before the end of the year, we should easily beat the street, and I have every expectation this will be reflected in the common stock - well before the "B" Options expiration's date."
CEO: "That means a bonus equivalent of almost 25 million before the end of the year? Am I correct?"
CFO: "Yes sir. Indeed, you are correct."
CEO: "Well then, let's get those staff "promotions" completed before the holidays. Can you do that?"
CFO: "Yes sir. I already have a meeting scheduled with HR."
CEO: "Gold Bless America!"
