>The simple answer to this is that Hamlet would make an awful CEO.

One reason would be, he obviously never got a salary for a days work. In
my Hamlet phase my shrink said "Get a job." It worked wonders.

In his wonderful "Hamlet: A User's Guide" Michael Pennington points out
that of the "king-becoming graces" cited in Macbeth, "Hamlet has about
three"--presumably some of these are CEO-becoming graces.

Nobody's pointed out that there's a Finnish film (directed by
Kaurismaaki, if that's the right spelling) called "Hamlet Goes Business"
and the Ethan Hawke Hamlet is set in Denmark Corp.
