Your math is off by an order of magnitude. Given the figures you cite Google’s worldwide payroll is around $5 billion, not $50 billion. It could be somewhat lower — not all employees are software engineers or product managers.

Do their employees still get free food in addition to the outrageous benefits? Google paid a phantom dividend to its shareholders which was really a cheesy stock split that has seen the price spiral downwards. Maybe Google should do such a blasé thing as pay its shareholders a dividend. Or a special massive, one time dividend while it hoards shareholder money. Google is approaching the irresponsibility to shareholders of Yahoo which in the last twenty years has paid its CEO’s over a billion dollars and not a penney to common shareholders. Sure takes those greedy, self-rewarding bastards a long time to part with shareholder money, as if there is ever a perfect, perfect time to pay out. Those executives get theirs first. Count on that.
