business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s effort to get American corporations to stop making political donations to either party until the US Congress and White House show the ability to compromise, make progress and demonstrate political courage has been endorsed by 150 CEOs.

“I want to suspend contributions because I don't believe that writing a check ... is what we should be doing,” Schultz told CNN. "Instead, I want to send this powerful signal to Washington that I and other like-minded CEOs, now 150 of us, are dissatisfied with the status quo. And we are begging you to understand that we need solutions to significant problems."
KC's View:
151. Because I’m guessing that Schultz is not counting me.
