Everything That's Wrong With Industrial-era Business


"This is part of a larger strategy. This is a unique time and we intend in six months to a year to have a number of brand names," said Bradley Snyder, principal and managing director at Gordon Brothers. "We see it as a completely opportunistic time. If not now, then when? We have virtually unlimited capital for this project."

It's all there in one pithy quote: an opportunistic play to invest "capital" in a "brand" which is part of a larger "strategy".

What's left unmentioned? Anything remotely to do with authentic, durable value creation.

A nice illustration of why our economy is melting down.
