Out of the Blue

Happy 7/11! As always, those with access to a participating 7-Eleven location can help them celebrate the occasion by picking up a free Slurpee. The forecast calls for it to hit 93 F today in these parts, so I have a feeling a lot of locals will be availing themselves of this offer.

The problem isn't the MBA's - it is the corporate greed waste mentality. Saying that comes from MBA's is like accusing holes in the ozone on masturbation.

I can't really agree with that, I think the stigma emerges from the lazy wastrels that seem to compromise the vast majority of MBAs in the work force these days. Whether that's a generational problems, an indictment of the educational programs themselves or a shift in economic "thinking" is a different story. No rambling about finance or excel has anything to do with that either. I do agree that the corporate greed waste mentality permeates many north american corporations these days and while I think Lutz misses a few points, he makes some very salient ones about building better consumer products and focusing on anything other than short term gains and self-flagellation. We can't really afford to continue with the existing disparity and our massive debts to other countries and recent financial collapses are a partial testament to that.
