Actually I trust the corporations less than I do the Government but corporations ultimately have to deal with an issue called 'customer retention'.
I get in arguments with large corporations all the time. They have there screwed up policies and their contracts and I have my hard earned money they
would like to seperate me from.
Before I ever give up on a corporation after exhausting call centers and supervisors I always utter these feared words "Transfer me to your Customer
Ultimately to most corporations my business has a precise value based on a formula the corporation has to determine a customer's precise value.
Ultimately it costs corporations money to acquire new customers which they break down based on their advertising budget versus how many new customers
their advertising budget brings in and divide the one into the other.
They are immediately authorized in customer retention to spend at least the cost of acquiring a new customer to placate me and keep me as a customer.
The can additionally split the difference and add to that concession the diference between what the average customers value in revenue is based on
their over all revenue divided by the over all number of customers and what my specific value as a customer is to them, which based on my spending
habits is always greater than the average customer.
Corporations will typically spend a sizable chunk of change in dollar and billing concessions to not loose my business.
The Government on the other hand does not believe I will move to Uruguay and take up residence elsewhere!
The Government does not care if I am not happy.
Corporations care if I am not happy if it means loosing my business.
I don't trust corporations or the government, I know how to do business with both, but it is far easier to do business with the corporations versus
the government when you have a genuine complaint you would like rectified.
As far as Government health, I am not sure if you caught the headlines but here in Miami the local VA ended up giving AIDS tainted blood to so many
patients they have had to ask every patient whose gotten blood for the past several years to come in and get tested!
That's the kind of health care I can do without.
