Genghis Khan-PR side
I understand the PR side why the reference to Genghis Khan was used but the reality is that history and business are not always the same. Sure one can make references to a historical figure and compare certain aspects of what is recorded in history to the modern world. Remember history is written by the winners and facts are not always a requirement to what really happened. This is even more evident in recent events. I can see how one can compare Genghis to many corporations and CEO's that decimated companies that apply slash and burn to an industry so they can sit on on their golden thrones (or golden parachutes). Good article to stimulate conversation.
