And cash flow is the pulse—the key vital sign of a company.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Jack Welch, the CEO of General Electric, laid off over 100,000 employees. His reward? When he retired from GE, he received a golden parachute of over $400 million dollars. This is the kind of corporate greed and irresponsibility that is destroying the middle class and must be ended.
Products, profits, and paychecks are not enough anymore. These days, society cares how you treat your own workers. Customers want to know you promote the same values inside your walls as you do outside; job hunters want to know you care about them before they send in an application. Your culture is your brand.

From now on, don’t do this, even for me. We don’t have an employer-employee relationship right now. I’m a person and you’re a person. Why does it have to be so one-sided? Why do only women…Why only you, Yoo Kyeong, have to do things like that? ‘So, I’ll try to look good, in any way that I can.’ Let go of such thoughts. When you’re on TV, you look wonderful, full of confident. You shine.

The simple index fund solution has been adopted as a cornerstone of investment strategy for many of the nation’s pension plans operated by our giant corporations and state and local governments. Indexing is also the predominant strategy for the largest of them all, the retirement plan for federal government employees, the Federal Thrift Savings Plan (TSP). The plan has been a remarkable success, and now holds some $173 billion of assets for the benefit of our public servants and members of armed services.
There are tribes, I should say nations, which prior to the AIM movement had only ten or fifteen employees, and now have upwards of 2000. There are educational programs that didn’t exist before, there are housing programs, health programs, senior citizen programs, cultural programs and the list goes on.

I’ve learned about employee relations; I’ve learned about following your instinct. One of the biggest mistakes you can follow is not following your instincts, you know?
