Re: There goes another DX order...
It's called cost/benefit and risk analysis and corporations have big teams of actuaries, lawyers etc. who do nothing but it.
If fixing a deadly flaw in a product will cost $50 million and the analysts determine that the wrongful death suits will cost $35 million - guess what doesn't get fixed.
In the corporate world, the ONLY thing that matters is money. Any question, problem, practice - you name it - comes down to the money, first, last & always.
Thinking about things like conscience, responsibility, right & wrong and other such personal traits in relation to corporations is pointless - they are the definition of psychopathic or sociopathic.
a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
