Sony CEO: Jobs Is Greedy

Sony CEO: Jobs Is Greedy

While Gordon Gekko (from the movie Wall Street) might have argued that greed is good, excessive amounts of it aren’t always conducive to effective business relationships.

Enter Steve Jobs and Sony CEO Howard Stringer.  Both of them are running corporations that sell music, and it appears that friction has developed as a result.  Jobs called record label execs greedy, Stringer responded that Jobs was a greedy and a hypocrite:
“Stringer made the comment in response to Jobs' own comments on record industry executives being greedy over the price of music downloads. Moderator Anderson Cooper tried to change the subject, but Diller interjected, repeating the Sony CEO's comments. When Cooper went back to Stringer to elaborate, he reportedly played down his earlier comments.”

It's not just Steve Jobs that's greedy. It's 95% of the overpaid and over-rated higher-ups out there.

The problem is, many of these people beleive they're better than everyone else because they make so much money. "I must be smart as hell, look how rich I am!"

But the bottom line is they're no different than you and me. They make some coin. They want more coin and it doesn't matter how they get it.
