From my experience, top notched performers find that the political players spend most their time sharpening their knives and waiting for the
opportunity to stab those top performers in the back, and then try to take claim for the accomplishment of others.
I have had my ideas stolen, my research stolen, and even had my name removed from my finished report (two years of research) and have another's name
attached. The SOB even ended up on TV because of MY research!
I really hated the GD politics in the big companies. You had to be an A$$ kisser and a back stabber to get ahead. Forget doing a good job it just
makes you a great target.
At least at the small firms the owner knew who the good workers were and treated them well. That is why I would love to see a cap on the size of
large corporations. Big invites abuses from my experience and it does nothing for productivity. It just adds several layers of paper pushers and
invites the type of office politics that screw a company up. Nothing like turf wars to stifle productivity.
By the by on the "Free Market" subject. You might want to read Mises on Money
It sure is
different than the crap the politicians are pushing.
Mises free market is not to the corporation or bankers benefit. Actually it is a method for keeping the as honest as possible. You will see the
politicians left out THE key point - The GOLD STANDARD!
Compare it to this:
Structural Adjustment Policies are economic policies which countries must follow in order to qualify for new World Bank and International Monetary
Fund (IMF) loans ... Although SAPs are designed for individual countries but have common guiding principles and features which include export-led
growth; privatisation and liberalisation; and the efficiency of the free market.
SAPs generally require countries to devalue their currencies against the dollar; lift import and export restrictions....
...SAPs often result in deep cuts in programmes like education, health and social care, and the removal of subsidies designed to control the price of
basics such as food and milk....
Devaluation makes their goods cheaper for foreigners to buy and theoretically makes foreign imports more expensive. In principle it should make the
country wary of buying expensive foreign equipment. In practice, however, the IMF actually disrupts this by rewarding the country with a large foreign
currency loan that encourages it to purchase imports.....
In the mean time the USA and the EU have farm subsidies so crops can be sold to the grain traders at well below production cost. The traders turn
around and sell cheaply to the third world countries pushing the native farmers out of business since they can not compete price wise.
THAT is not free market, THAT is a set-up for raping a country. For example 74 percent of the population in the Central African Republic works in the
agriculture industry, agriculture represents up to 50-60% of the total economy in some African countries - those that are not oil rich.
I really love how words get twisted so black is white.
