I was looking at corporate raiders,and some of them have made a ton of money,such as Carl Ichan. I was wondering if the following would be a way to get into the practice in today's world based economy. Buying a local business with a good amount of revenue,but the profit isn't so well do to the number of employes and management. Fire the unneeded management,and outsource the workers that have work that can be outsourced to people in countries such as India,china,Estonia etc. Fire the accountants or the firm being used,and replace them with a good computer program. Move the company more overseas so that I can lower tax rate from 35% to maybe as low as 10%. If I were to do that, could I sell the business for many more times then what I paid for it,within a short amount of time?
