Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Long term we may well need entirely different systems and processes - on the lines advocated by Chris Cook - in any case, so now could be a very bad time to be taking on huge contingent liabilities in return for a business model which no longer works.

Can I point out that no-one appears to have any clue what the long term consequences of what Chris advocates would be?

That tends to be the way with new ideas. I'm going through some of the practical ramifications with him at the moment.  There are elements of what he prooses already in place.  Partnership, profit sharing, employee Board representation, unitisation of future revenue streams are not all reasonably well understood concepts.  The key issue is that you cannot expect people to make huge sacrifices without some stake in future gains...

I do, and I've said it often enough.

Personally, I don't think much of the long-term consequences of the existing system.
