"No - they don't *have* to. Making the same profit as last year isn't a right or a duty."

You get an upvote for that level of naivety. :)

Seeing as it's been some significant time since we've seen any news item on a company actively investing in their future on a timescale longer than "tommorrow". The fact that this is shortsighted seems utterly lost on most.

It's a shame that companies (or, tellingly, shareholders) don't take a longer view on making money. And while I'm wishing, I'd like politicians that represented the majority of humanity, instead of the majority of money (read: the monied).
