Bean-counter culture

It had to be said. Bean counters can be dangerous to businesses, everyone deserves a good deal however everyone with marketable talent and knowledge deserves respect too.

This cuts both ways; the culture of unsustainable short-term gain is just as unacceptable whether buying or selling.

Nobody really wins and mediocrity is the only possible outcome.

A larger pile of beans is no use to a company if they don't do something remarkable with it; they may lose a few along the way however I can guarantee nothing amazing can happen unless the bean-counters are forced to plant some and help something develop.
