Are trillion dollar companies good for society?

If I was on the jury determining whether or not  trillion dollar companies are good for society we'd be undecided. What's your thoughts?

In my lifetime (I'm 64) society has become part of the economy instead of the economy being part of society. This leads to misplaced priorities and poor decisions.

I confess to being a satisfied Apple mac user. And I like what CEO Tim Cook says, nevertheless I'm nervous about companies having more cash than countries. Your thoughts?


"(Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Tim Cook said on Thursday that the iPhone maker’s $1 trillion market capitalization was “not the most important measure” of the company’s success but was instead a result of its focus on its products, customers and company values."

To be or not to be?

My wife's passion for and involvement over many years in the theatre meant a pilgrimage some years back to the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

On our pilgrimage I bought a fridge magnet that holds pride of place on my office whiteboard.


“To be or not to be” really is the question.

And “This above all. To thine own self be true.” really is the answer.

Who will you become?

What will you do next?

Be remarkable.
