Why Does Apple Have so Much Cash?

The insightful Horace Dediu writes some of the easiest to understand pieces on Apple and its economic model. Many people know that Apple is sitting on a large cash pile, over $270 billion (with a “B”) but people ask me sometimes why they don’t spend it (by doing large acquisitions) or give it back to shareholders (dividends or share buybacks.) The reason they don’t do the former is cultural and they do actually do the latter. Horace has put together a great FAQ on all of this.

Everything I need to know in life I learned from watching television.
