This is one of those things where the tax code needs changed so that income is income, and payment via shares is exactly the same as any other income. This will force a mentality change in the top of corporations back to longer (not long, but longer than now) thinking.
The shocking thing is that really old companies that are still dominated by families are convinced of doing this. From farmers to the Fords.
And it's also why I'm no fan of the US's current version of capitalism. Where shareholders are not just #1, they are #2-10, too. There's almost no real responsibility to society, the environment, or the future. Sic and others like him have totally bought into this crap, not noticing that the actual people who benefit by this thinking is so very small that they are not part of it. Totally in denial that other societies around the world have figured out how to deal with it- like the Scandinavian countries, or Finland, or other European countries. Instead of taking some very solid and democratic socialist ideas, they rail on the failures of the USSR, Cuba, and Venezuela as how bad socialism is- which also totally ignores the problem that we've adopted Communist China and Vietnam as our labor force.
