Staten goes challenge accepted

Enligt etablerat meme-tema (ifall tid finns kommer Photoshoppande):

Ständig fråga, exempelvis nämnd nyligen av Jacob Spinney:

Vem granskar granskarna?

Från ABC News, via Lee Doren:

The Pentagon was inundated with so many studies in 2010 that it commissioned a study to determine how much it cost to produce all those studies.

Now the Government Accountability Office has reviewed the Pentagon’s study and concluded in a report this week that it’s a flop.

Milton Friedman (eller tydligen egentligen William Aberhart):

At one of our dinners, Milton recalled traveling to an Asian country in the 1960s and visiting a worksite where a new canal was being built. He was shocked to see that, instead of modern tractors and earth movers, the workers had shovels. He asked why there were so few machines. The government bureaucrat explained: “You don’t understand. This is a jobs program.” To which Milton replied: “Oh, I thought you were trying to build a canal. If it’s jobs you want, then you should give these workers spoons, not shovels.”
