Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps what has happened is that the engineers have wised up, but the MBAs are still fat, dumb and happy.

Whether this has something to do with the fact that the MBAs are now doing the jobs that the engineers used to do back when the engineers were still fat, dumb and happy is left as an exercise for the reader.

What it does do is insure that the decision makers are primarily trained in matters economic and administrative rather than technical. That does make a difference. I would like to see the backgrounds of the senior management at TEPCO.
