Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think mass production and Mc Donaldisation is the only way things can be directed by a small group of people at the top of a hierarchy - after all, there's only so much a small group of people can wrap their collective heads around.

If you're forced to eke out a competitive advantage through local knowledge, you must have a much flatter decision structure and the size of your operation is limited. Unless, of course, you're a banker and you own people's ability to get things done in the first place - for in our economy, without credit there is no activity.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
