Payne's error is contained in this comment: " Of course, employee prosperity is critical and doing business in a way that mitigates impact to the environment matters. But these things are a given for long term success. What company wants to retrain workers over and over or ruin the world they serve"
The answer is almost ALL of them and the data is there to prove it. CEO's are paid to maximize short term profits and keep stock prices high. The days when one built a company as a life long mission are long gone and Payne is naive in the extreme to think any differently.
