Maybe but I thought it was brilliant in your earlier posts when you suggested a disaster like this might be partially caused by accountants making the
decisions that operational people should be making. So I was completely on board with that, corporate greed, follow the money, etc all makes sense to
BP is going to get stuck with a multi-billion dollar bill for this, so in the context of pinching pennies to improve the bottom like, how in the world
could they be incentivized to go along with the Obama administration to prolong the leak, if that is what you are suggesting may have happened? The
Obama administration/US government is sending invoices to BP, they just got their 4th invoice for over $100 million.
So while the incompetent problem solving is puzzling, the financial mechanics of the supposed conspiracy escape me, and as you point out, there's no
absence of greed in corporations, so that part seems difficult to reconcile.
