Questions for discussion:

  • Do you believe this is a wise financial planning decision at Apple?
  • How do you think it will be received by other employees at the firm and by the stockholders?
  • Do you believe this is the sort of activity being protested by the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters?
  • How is it the same or different than what is being protested?
