Other: This Helps How?
This brings up three thoughts:
1) It obviously wasn't about the DUIs: they don't have any real effect on someone doing their job... we in British Columbia hope;
2) Making a profit isn't enough - the profit has to be BIG;
3) Who the hell thought that degrees in Psychology and Theology would help someone be the CEO of a major electronics retailer?
Answer the third question, and you may have solved the question of declining productivity in the United States.
