"respected audio publications" sounds like you're making shit up.  Why not say which publications?
What is scold worthy about China's treatment of gays then? As far as I can tell* there is a social stigma (as there to some degree is pretty much everywhere), but no government oppression.  They don't have legal recognition of gay marriage, but then, neither does the US in its entirety. What point do you expect Tim Cook to be making, to avert this apparently heinous hypocrisy?   * this is good: http://www.chinalawblog.com/2013/07/homosexuality-in-china.html
 Do you guys even think about doing any research into your broad claims? HP were in Greenpeace's good books in 2011: http://www.environmentalleader.com/2011/11/09/hp-knocks-nokia-from-lead-in-greenpeace-electronics-guide/  But have been targetted in the past:  http://www.computerweekly.com/news/2240061839/Greenpeace-protesters-target-HP Dell rated second place on the same measure (ahead of Apple):...
 Yeah, wouldn't it be great if FileMaker had the price and attention that Apple give Aperture. Oh, wait...
???  Bar a bit of hyperbole on my part ("only" when I should have said "most"), that's pretty much exactly what you said.  So, according to you, in the encyclopedia definition of "capitalism", I will find a description of how the most efficient use of a company's profit is to reinvest it.  1.  Unless you have a very poorly written encyclopedia, that is almost certainly false; I won't, unless you've written it in the margin.  2. That directly implies that it is less...
^ Totally agree, but it was you that said Musk's preference wouldn't matter.  It would, a lot, even in the case of a very aggressive hostile takeover.
A company could invest in a swimming pool full of champagne and call that plant too, what's your point?  And if a company has reached market saturation in its industry, or is operating in a declining industry, then what effect will investment likely have?  A diminishing return at best.   There are more sources of investment than companies, there are also individuals, and there is government.  And there is no definitive, absolute rule or "principle" about which type of...
You really love saying this, don't you?  The OP talked about democratically elected, not democracy.  The USA uses a democratic system of elections nationally, and locally it is often more directly democratic.
This is massively debatable and at the very least contextually dependent.  The company in question may not be efficient at producing growth, jobs, and higher wages.  Returning money to shareholders to reinvest in whatever they see fit may well be more "economically efficient", especially since greater jobs and economic opportunity tend to be driven by start ups.  There is no categorical evidence either way, and certainly in cases where companies have over-invested and seen...
