More CEO's need to do this instead of  getting a government bailout.

They arent really comparable are they, but anyway...

Sony (and all Japanese exporters) have had huge help from the state, direct and indirect.


I'm comparing the GM bailout.

Well in general financial related news usually seems to lag a couple days, plus with the coming results being soon, people who saw it probably didn't see the need.


when are the results coming? haven't been on interwebnets in awhile. I did'nt know that.

As another example, while the Sony selling Square Enix stock was posted here... I don't think anyone ever posted the reason why that came out later

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/05/13/why-sony-sold-all-its-square-enix-shares-revealed

"Back in 2001, Square Enix had financial problems and Sony bought our stocks," he explained. "Now, the situation is reversed. Since then, we have had good support from our customers for our products, so Square Enix is back on its legs.

“But Sony has declined. The presidents of both companies had negotiation and resulted as everyone knew. We did not have argument. Since Sony once helped us, it was time we helped Sony back.”

Iwata took a 50% pay cut recently and Nintendo isn't in "going bust" levels of trouble - I'm not sure if it is as big a deal for a Japanese CEO to take a significant pay cut as it might be for an American one

Japanese CEOs have more integrity.  American CEOs would happily take a huge bonus while they run their business into the ground and ruin the lives of their employees.


This is just nonsense.

Ill informed nonsense that in one genralising stroke patronises a whole nation and denigrates another.  Its very insulting.

Care to tell it to the tens and tens of thousands of people let go by Sharp, SONY, panasonic etc etc etc. (rightly let go I might add)

I'll say.  The Japanese Government's corporate favortism makes the UK look laiszze fair in comarison.

There is a reason why the Japanese have a specific term for when government officials retire and get gigantic corproate contracts.

You said not really though, but I still think you're wrong. I'll end it as that.
