According to Business Insider, Apple has more cash on hand than the US government does.
In other words, the world’s largest tech company has more cash than the world’s largest sovereign government.
That’s because Apple collects more money than it spends, while the U.S. government does not.
Apple spends less money than it takes in. Imagine that!
Of course, there is a difference between Apple and our government that’s worth noting. Apple makes things people want, and is run by smart people who know how to turn a profit. The government is apparently run by imbeciles who have no clue about basic economics.
