And what do you want to bet, the same geniuses that set about this COA, and now reversing course as rapidly as possible, are getting big bonuses and promotions for their new foresight.
I can't figure out how this works in the corporate world. Short memory, rewarding failure, or ?, it's beyond me.
Same with mgmt. that run a company into the ground, they then are hired by someone else for more bucks because of their "experience."
But then it works in the public sector too now that I think about it. The old "you've got to screw up to move up" is alive and well.
