I slogged through that article and it made my blood boil (talk about hurry-up-and-finish-packing-the-boxes-and-load-them-on-the-train bankers). Makes me sypathize with the Chinese govt's habit of executing white-collar criminals who get too greedy.
Gadarene swine indeed.
Perhaps I should have titled it "The Gadarene Storm".
In short, we've come to the conclusion that I came to about 30 years ago - our major corporations, universities, governments and school systems are run by B Ark people.
OP: A Ark but conscienceless.
A Ark, B Ark? I no unnerstand.
'B Ark' (from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), consisting of the useless 1/3 of the population, such as telephone sanitizers, hairdressers, advertising executives, and most middle managers.I have to respectfully disagree with the wise *old* Sackerson - they are B Ark material - most of the CEO's and other Wall Street guys doing the buying and selling were liberal arts majors with no discernable quantitative skills whatsoever. They were dealing in huge amounts of money without any understanding of the complexity behind them. It's the same with almost all technology around us. These same guys have cut research budgets in universities, companies and the national grants for years, and yet expect to have fancy new gadgets at a moment's notice. I wish we had Adams' solution.
That seems a bit hard on the telephone sanitizers, Prof.
