Tech Firms Should Give Up And Expense Options

from the making-the-case dept

Hal Plotkin give his opinion on why tech companies need to suck it up, realize they’ve lost this battle, and start expensing stock options. I go back and forth on this one, as I think both sides have really convincing arguments. However, Plotkin one by one tries to cut through the “don’t expense options” arguments. I’m still wondering if there’s not a reasonable compromise in the middle somewhere, such as the one Craig Barrett recommended a few months back.
