A lot of people died fighting tyranny. The least I can do is vote against it.

Carl C. Icahn Issues Open Letter to Local 54 President Bob McDevitt

Dear Bob:

In a recent interview, you stated that I should start thinking about my legacy.  My answer to you is that I have thought about my legacy for many years.  I have committed myself to a path of charitable giving that shows just how much I care about the less fortunate, especially children in need.  As you may know, I’ve donated hundreds of millions of dollars, established seven Charter schools, given away hundreds of scholarships and pledged almost $200 million to the Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York.  I could go on and on, but my point is that helping the lives of those in need has always been, and will always be, a clear priority for me.  But more to the point, I also care about the Taj Mahal, and that is why I am doing everything I can to save the jobs of the 3,000 employees who work there.


The Shareholders’ Square Table (SST) is a platform from which we can unite and fight for our rights as shareholders and steer towards the goal of real corporate democracy.

When you sign up and become a member of SST, you’ll receive emails with timely information on the movement, and have full access to our website containing:

  • In depth reports about activism and various companies we are involved in
  • Insights on business
  • Commentary and criticism of certain actions by boards and CEOs
  • ‘No-brainers’ and ‘Absurdities’

Most importantly, our periodic posts will discuss what can be done to change our current, dysfunctional system of corporate governance.

While there are many good CEOs and boards there are far too many ineffectual ones that are strangling shareholders and the economy.
