They are paying more than they have to for the managers. Which means that extra money is not going towards hiring more workers in general.

Everything else being equal, an average business would be outcompeted if they did something like that.

If you still think what they are doing is efficient, take it further and further. Start increasing the salaries more and more. Very soon you will be able to afford one worker. A very expensive ceo maybe?

Consider a food service worker in Facebook's cafeteria. In an hour, perhaps they make 30 lunches, which in the best case delight 60 people for an hour: 60 person-hours of delight for an hour of work.
Now contrast a Facebook programmer, who in one hour might be able to fix a bug that has been annoying 0.1% of Facebook's 2.5 billion users, causing them to be frustrated rather than delighted for, say, two minutes a day, for the next three years before the feature gets rewritten. Maybe that sounds trivial, but if so, shut up and multiply: 2.5 million hours of delight per month for 36 months gives you 90 million hours of delight, for the same hour of work.
So at a rough estimate, then, the gourmet hacker is 1.5 million times as productive as the gourmet chef. Maybe if I've2overoptimistic And that's how Facebook can be profitable at all despite all the lovely and stupid things they do:

As a German, I just realized that my intuitive understanding of the (seemingly English) word "glitch" seems to be far better than that of native English speakers, because the Yiddisch word "glitshn" comes from German "glitschen", which comes from "gleiten" - to slide, slip. So to me, it always meant exactly that: the program slipped and fell

at one apple press event in the mid 2000s, stebe jorbs actually took questions from the assembled journalists (presumably one of the things to be announced was scratched at the last moment leaving a hole in the schedule to fill)

one of the tech journos kept badgering stebe as to why apple didnt cover its computers with promotional stickets. he absolutely could not understand why apple was leaving money on the table by refusing to poo poo up its products with "intel inside" and "powered by nvidia" logos. why is apple turning up its nose at free money?!?

it's funny because apple does do this, in reverse; they give the customer apple stickers with poo poo they buy and said people slap them on whatever

the discussion about commutes also needs to consider that the workplace can also move independent of any individual's choice

my office moved from the center of town, a 14 minute 7 mile drive, to the absolute south rear end edge of the city, in the richest neighborhood, because it was "better for [the boss's] kids", and increased my commute to 25-30m+ and 15 miles, with occasionally wildly increased times because of congestion. other people were even worse off

people can also be moved to new locations if their current one closes or a new one is opening and needs people


Nomnom Cookie posted:

are they trying to imply that progressive taxes arent justifiable

the far more, uh, enlightening part was at the end:

quote:

Consumption taxes are regressive and bad, but at least they're justifiable. Without government protection, the poor/weak have no rights that the rich/strong have to respect; they end up enslaved, serfs. So they pay a poverty/weakness tax.

you pay a poor tax to the government to prevent the rich from treating you like slaves

notably absent is the concept of, you know, not letting rich people do that. (or not letting people be rich, period.)

4 is going to be the usual case, because (esp in the us) so much poo poo is tied into jobs. like if you need health care for whatever reason, you better hope your job provides it or pays you enough to manage, because lol otherwise. and in the tech sector there's a lot of contractors / probation periods where you don't get that benefit until you've been there for 90 days or whatever

the most effective solution is a strong enough safety net that being able to quit one's job is something all people can afford to do, but lol at the idea of capital ever giving up enough power for that to even be a possibility

there was an old online casino that had such a wonderful implementation of blackjack that it violated rules constantly and would often deal multiple aces of diamonds in a row

unfortunately finding it again is nigh impossible and it doesn't help that at least one website that would ordinarily have lists of hosed up online casinos has a bunch of broken links that go to the wrong pages
