PSA: Guinness are actually a bunch of greedy, autocrat-enabling asshats.
The fact of the matter is if GM, Ford, et al. want to remain profitable, and in business in the future, it needs the middle class. With stagnant wages, all these companies are fighting for an increasingly (decreasing?) smaller piece of the pie that is a viable customer base. A more robust middle class will lead to…
Neutral: Stop judging executives so harshly on quarterly results. Start looking at annual and longer performance windows instead, then adjusting their compensation accordingly — including holdbacks for certain long-term goals.

Can we all take a minute to acknowledge trailblazer Katy Perry for bisexualizing sexual harrassment? Another civil rights milestone!
Yep, if you’re going to lean into the 80's craze, give us the cars too!
Based on all the things I read about him in Super Street magazine back in the day, I thought he was a massive douche back in the early 2000's. He seems fine now, I could see how people perpetuating all kinds of misinformation about your life’s work could make a guy bitter and angry.
