Man, thats incredible. At first I thought they were saying 'hospitals aren't as advanced as we'd like them to be'. But they're actually saying that businesses, where the only concern is merely making profit, has been more innovative and active.
This is interesting for me because I was recently reading about how people that value achievement tend to become successful business people. And, similarly, entire cultures that have high acheivement values, (apparently as tested thru the fables and fairy tales they tell their kids) are also highly successful cultures, as opposed to unsuccesful marginalized, powerless, third world, cutlures.
Additionally, this is interesting because a person in a culture who picks up a 'new' thing, whether its a tool or a technique, is called an 'entrepeneur'. Originally it was because it was business people that have this interest, but later it was extended to non economic traits.
So I find this interesting in this context, because its the businesses that are modernizing and adapting the best, and they're probably doing so more efficiently and cost effectively than anyone else is. Yet their the motive is simply profit, whereas in hospitals, well, one of the greatest human motives is supposedly at work.
And its ineffective.
