Will Apple’s private sector reality change Lisa Jackson’s “doughy concepts such as economic redistribution and alleviating racial grievances”

From the Wall Street Journal:

At the EPA Ms. Jackson proved to be an especially abusive and willful regulator, even for the Obama administration, and her epic rule-making bender continues to drag on economic growth. But nothing about her career suggests any expertise in technology; prior to her EPA posting Ms. Jackson was a political functionary in New Jersey and New York. At least Al Gore invented the Internet before he joined the Apple board.

Perhaps Ms. Jackson’s introduction to the business world will educate her about the realities of the private sector. Her EPA specialty was imposing rules regardless of costs, while stretching “benefits” with doughy concepts such as economic redistribution and alleviating racial grievances. This political agenda is harder to defend when you’re being paid (presumably) to create value for shareholders and consumers.

  1. I feel a massive selloff coming…..

  2. “Perhaps Ms. Jackson’s introduction to the business world will educate her about the realities of the private sector.” Snort.

  3. Pretty expensive OJT.

  4. Dumped my Apple stock as soon as I found out. At a loss.

  5. Ms. Jackson now gets megabucks for trying to undo what she did and to make Apple greener than ever. Such a deal.

  6. Forget the Ipad, I think the next Apple product will be named the Kneepad…..

  7. Public Citizen

    Now would be a really good time to unload your Apple stock before the main course hits the rotary distribution system. The slide will be ever downward and won’t end till she is long gone, as the effects of a zealot of her stripe will be far reaching.
