    for an example, just look at hollywood.  in the early days of cinema, the guys who ran the studios, they cared a lot about bottom line-they were businessmen (i don't believe there were any women running the studios in those days) but they also had a commitment and a great love for telling stories.

    today, the studios are all run by bean counters who care for nothing more than the returns at opening weekend-that's it.

    so, the result of "running everything like a business" is shitty education, shitty movies, shitty healthcare and shitty government.

    hope springs eternal and DAMN is she getting tired!

      It's why television has been reduced to "reality cr*pola"...... bottom line + line the pockets of the suits = reality stupidity.  And the bonus, actors and writers unions trashed and destroyed.

        Things like "Reality TV" which is neither reality nor good TV is cheap to make and panders to the purient imagination of the hoi poloi. This leads to huge profits and bad programs.

        IOW, a Republican wet dream, with the added bonus of being usable to reprogram the minds (?) of said viewers.

        Which is why I refuse to watch such things.
