Fortune Zero

leave a comment »

The 2008 Fortune 1000 has finally been released. If I were grading their work for timeliness, I’d give them a flat zero. Five years ago when corporate annual statements were due March 31, Fortune actually released their list earlier in April than they’ve finally managed to drag their sorry butt through the door today, when they had a full extra month since this year’s Sarbanes-Oxley February 29 filing deadline.

I could have published this list myself as early as the Ides of March from spare-time hobby puttering done in connection with my interests in pension plans. If Fortune is as late next year, perhaps I will.
