Mark Cuban makes some really great points, as usual.
His personal take is that the market and business environment are in better places today:
Everyone is going to answer that question differently based on their own personal situation. But what I can tell you as a business person trying to look at the big picture, I don’t remember 4 years ago as being a good time for business.
My personal situation is somewhat better today than in 2008, but that is the wrong comparison point. I need my situation to be better than it was in 2006 or 2007. With that as a comparison point, my situation is worse. Your mileage may vary…
He takes politicians to task, which seems like a very good idea to me.
I only wish that candidates were held to the same standards of fact that CEO’s of public companies are. If CEOs were as vague, fast and loose with the facts as our candidates are, they would be in big trouble. How sad is it that our Presidential candidates are not required to hold the same levels of fact as our corporate leaders are.
Based on how he ended the article, asking for a serious lack of lies from the candidates, I can’t wait for his Part 2 of the post!
