AS an INM spin doctor, I am often asked: “Doctor, there’s something very wrong with my company. Can you save it?”
The short answer is no. This is because all the top executives suffer from a condition known as Swollen Salary Syndrome (or Corporatus Blottus Normalis, to use the proper medical term), which leads to prolonged symptoms of intense greed and sudden outbursts of ill-feeling in the boardroom.
The stress of running a huge number of wealth-creating global companies while simultaneously dealing with the complexities of overseeing life-enhancing offshore tax arrangements can sometimes be extremely dangerous to one’s financial health.
Of course, legal battling and trying to treat an ill radio station with new financial medicine wion’t help.
