CEOs re-read Atlas Shrugged in Times of Trouble
Every month or so, a group of 15 or 20 Kansas City CEOs get together to share advice and corporate war stories....[T]he Kansas City group has fantasized of a modern-day strike of thinkers and creators, says Neal Patterson, a group member and CEO of Cerner, a big health care information technology company.
"We are the producers of society," says Will Koch, CEO of a development company that owns the Holiday World & Splashin' Safari theme park in Santa Claus, Ind. "We take resources that would be idle and put people to work."
Hah! If CEOs went on strike, productivity would probably go through the roof.
