This is no secret: Apple makes a lot of money. Seriously, Cupertino has piles of the stuff lying around. The iPhone maker has $75.9 billion sat in the bank in cash and “marketable securities“. That is insane.
The US government on the other hand has to operate on a bank balance of $73.8 billion. With Apple’s renown for being one of the most financially responsible companies on the planet, I’m sure you’d agree with the common opinion that maybe Apple’s financial officers should be in charge of the US budget.
