Corporate Decisions in Two Different Worlds


  • Rhett Hardwick

    “In the REAL WORLD, companies – like NATIONAL GRID – give back to their employees and customers when taxes are cut.”

    In the REAL WORLD, National Grid is a “regulated utility” and their profits are “regulated”. When “costs”, i.e. taxes, are reduced they are required to reduce their rates. Of course, raising employees salaries is a “cost” so, in a sense, it works to their benefit. Their actions are not a “response to the market”.
