A recent item in The Week magazine captivated my attention. It is a direct quote taken from the Wall Street Journal and written by Scott Adams. From my perspective, it provides a sad commentary on the state of American business.
“The primary purpose of management is to kill any hope that staying in your current job will work out for you. Bad management is how imagination gets wings. The economy needs workers who are fed up, desperate, and willing to quit their jobs for something better. You can’t do something great until first you quit something that isn’t. The last thing this world needs is a bunch of dopey-happy workers who can’t stop humming and grinning. The economy needs hamster -brained sociopaths in management to drive down the opportunity cost of entrepreneurship. Luckily, we are blessed with an ample supply.”
Sad to think that the Wall Street Journal expressed the opinion that bad management abounds throughout our country. America take note!
