1. Your business becomes successful to the point where you decide that you no longer want to take responsibility of it, however you decide to keep your status by renaming your position as CEO
, etc. so that you can determine your own ridiculous salary and sell your stocks to "shareholders" who then take responsibility of your business. Furthermore, if your company is a bank
you can then purposely go bankrupt so that the government can bail you out to give yourself a bonus in addition to your ridiculous salary because the taxpayer
s will pay it and they don't have any say-so in the government
. You can also donate money without paying taxes to a politician's shell corporation so that nobody will ever know it was you "on record." You also (wrongly) assume that the average taxpayer is too stupid to know what's going on here.
2. An expletive used to describe anything that amounts to investment without return.
I should incorporate my business so that I can sell stock to people and then purposely go bankrupt, get bailed out, and give myself a bonus on top of the ridiculous salary I already make!

Something that doesn't really need to be greedy, but in reality, is.
CEOs in America make thousands of times more than their employees. In Britain, they only make about six times as much.
See that CD you just bought for $15? It cost about 1 cent to make it. How much does the artist get? About 50 cents or less per CD. How much goes into the laborers that made the CD? Well, seeing that it was either made by machines or minimum-wage workers (to assemble the case), the electricity/labor cost per CD is probably 5-10 cents. Let's round up and say it's a dollar total. So where's the rest go? Into the corporation.
The Rock Against Bush CD cost $7 (if you buy it directly from the producer). That's less than half the price of a typical CD. That shows that it is possible to have cheap CDs.
An ideal corporation always puts its employees before its executive office and always puts its consumers before its profit. But of course, none of this happens. We see people get laid off so that the exectuive's stock can go up a half of a point. We see goods that cost a dollar to make being sold for twenty. We see them exploiting the children of third-world countries.
Don't give me crap about how they want the job. It's exploiting, regardless of whether they want it or not. Since when do Americans deserve more rights than Africans or Chinese?
Oh, and corporations basically have the government and media in its pocket. Corporations buy the presidency through donat...

Entity that can, and usually does, abuse its employees, investors, and customers. Led by individuals called executives, who care only about playing golf, porking each other's trophy wives, and lining their own pockets.
Many elections have been rigged by powerful corporations.
A collection of people who hate each other, working themselves to death to make someone else rich.
"He's had three heart attacks in the last six months, hasn't seen his kids and a year and will gladly tell you the sky is beet red if his boss says so. He's a real asset to the corporation."
A fascist regime that is permitted to exist within a democratic society.
