Very interesting article, even more interesting comments. It seems like no matter what type of business it is, if all the company cares
about is the stock price, then it is a slippery slope to closing the doors for good. Not that the stock price isn't important, but it should grow
because you have a reputation of being a great place to buy something, not because you squeeze out a few extra dollars by sneaking
a charge past someone for a case that should be part of the deal or getting rid of great employees that know what they are doing to
pay someone else a little less. Unfortunately GC and the music instrument industry is/are not the only ones going through this. Every
stock holder wants their money for nothing--isn't that the mind set that started the recession and popped the housing market bubble?
Seems like the opposite mind set of where music comes from.
