It’s true- Apple is richer than the US government because quite simply Apple has more money than the US Government.
The RKWZ Takeaway is a rather scary proposition. It transcends any jokes or quips the Internet can muster, i.e. Apple management should take charge of US government economic policy. The takeaway is far more serious: the fundamental health of the U.S. Treasury and fiscal policy is far different than that of corporate America. It’s true folks. As of May 28, 2014, Apple is richer than the U.S. Government. Far richer. And we really need to get concerned and the sooner the better. -RKWZ
