Ross, a billionaire investor and leveraged buyout specialist, sat on the company’s board until Wednesday, and in January disclosed equity holdings of between $750,000 and $1.5 million.
Let's see. $1.5 million is a little less than 0.2% of $1 billion. So we are talking about appreciation as a result of increases in share market value, which would be a fraction of the total value of the holdings. Talk about nit picking!! Is that the best you nice folks can do? heh heh the term "microscopically small potatoes" comes to mind.
On the other hand, the increased value to the U.S. economy and of jobs in going forward with the project is yuge.
BTW, you folks may not have noticed, but the U.S.steel industry production has declined horribly in the last few decades to the point where our own domestic suppliers may well not have been able to provide the needed materials at a competitive price at the same quality. So the decision to exempt the company may have absolutely nothing to do with anything nefarious or untoward.
Of course, why wait for strong evidence of unethical behavior when it is so much more convenient and fun to simply jump to conclusions based on personal enmity.
Awaiting your substantive comeback and hitting my stopwatch NOW...
