Hilariously bad decision making on the part of politicians, business leaders, and the growing list of Darwin Award-winners leave many people in a constant fit of giggles and, at the more egregious shortcomings, shock and awe. The business world is one in which we get to see bad decisions take place, on a very big and public stage, right before our eyes. While sometimes the decisions of business leaders may come off as completely insane, they end up being small acts of genius. Others, on the other hand, come off as completely insane and end up proving their worth as exactly that: small, but costly acts of temporary insanity. Still, there are other times when bad business decisions can be warded off before the damage is actually done. Or, on the other hand, if these decisions had gone the other way, it's hard to imagine that we would still see the same world we live in today. From big purchases to decisions by wealthy individuals to instead sit on their hands, history is rife with examples. We've put together a list of some of the most impactful, yet egregious business decisions of all time. Read through, and try to imagine how the world could be different had the pendulum swung the other direction.
When Netanyahu lands in this country he should be arrested as a war criminal and sent to the International war Crime Tribunal for trail. Netanyahu has been pushing for and practicing aggressive war for decades. That the legislature of this country would let such a piece of lying filth stand in front of it and dictate American foreign policy and try to get us to start an aggressive war is a disgrace. One thing Obama can do is kick out the Israeli embassy staff and release all the evidence of spying and bribery the Israeli's have been doing for decades. The whole thing is about Netanyahu trying to gain an advantage in the coming election. We will see if Netanyahu's stunt alters the behavior of democrats who feed at the Israel lobby trough. And by "us" Indyuk means israelis and by "them" Americans. Foolish, naive, and ignorant American politicians. They think that just because they love israelis unconditionally, the israelis have to reciprocate. Or is the US like the abused wife who'd rather get a beating than be ignored by her abuser. "… place the fortunes of his own government over the interests of a foreign country.
