If this wasn't so sad, crap journalism, it might even be funny?
Errr if they lose $30m and that is 2.2% that puts a significant proportion of US GNP at $1.36 billion?............. unless he meant individually, in which case the article is even crappier?
And I am sure that most companies in the Fortune 500 or even 5000 gross over $1.4 billion?
My view is that if you do not understand statistics...... don't use them?
