Jobs & Cameron: Optimism versus gloom, doom and more gloom

Posted on by Mike Evans

Here in Britain today we listened to our new Prime Minister, David Cameron, heaping doom upon gloom and forecasting pain for all. A few hours later, over in San Francisco, Apple's PM, Steve J, was exuding confidence and optimism. Apple seems to be a well-run company and, currently, can do no wrong; and the new iPhone 4 will undoubtedly heap success upon success. So maybe an entrepreneur such as Steve Jobs would do a much better job of running countries on a firm commercial basis. Instead we are run by professional politicians who, with few honourable exceptions, have never worked in commerce and have never had to balance a budget. The contrast between world economic crisis and booming iSales is quite remarkable.
