Part of the wider picture is the whole issue of human productivity
starting from totally different connections than accountants assume in
their rather rotten assessments of performance wherever these are applied

wicked debate and if anyone some has simple human system views they think
might need to part of the whole picture, please drop by at or around

sincerely, chris macrae, in London
