Corporate Greed?


Recommended Posts

I have, for decades, heard people...mostly liberals, but not exclusively...rail over what they consider corporate greed. The primary objective of a business is, and always has been, to make a profit. The owners and/or officers are to utilize the assets of the business in a way to maximize return.

 

So...straight forward question for those that feel corporate greed is a major problem: What is an acceptable percentage return for a company to have on their assets? You can even qualify your answer by industry if you feel a retail company should get a higher percentage return than a healthcare company for example.

 

I asked for percentage return since total dollars can be misleading.
