A very inneresting article on the vicissitudes of large-organization
inventory control, and the overall concept of management, centralization,
bureaucracy, and optimization -- or non-optimization.
A large part of the problem is, bluntly, the fuck-you attitude of the
front-line worker, who basically laughs -- and capitalizes -- on
A fuck-you attitude which is an almost inevitable consequence of trickle-up
economics, imo. Actually, altho this article doesn't address philosophical
issues, many of the implications of these issues are clear, altho certainly
no real solution is clear.
Well, actually there is one solution left in The New Employment Climate, and
that is Management by Terror, which is accomplished by highly paying a few
sociopathic bigwhigs, to make sure Shit Rolls Swiftly Downhill, into the
mouths of every frontline worker.
NYCHA just has to find the right chain of sociopaths.
