I do not have a problem with small business owners doing whatever it takes to grow their business or making as much money as they see fit. I don't have a problem with private equity "raiders" who seize a market opportunity and make an insane amount of money off of it.
That's not what's happening here. When small businesses fail, the business owner loses money. When private equity or investors or anybody fails, they lose their shirt on it. When a CEO fails, they get paid and the shareholders are the ones who lose all their money and the company loses the ability to invest that money back into the business.
It is ridiculous to suggest that the corporation is the property of the CEO when they have NOTHING to lose if they fail, except for guarantee of employment.
