"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Industrial Organisation, Dilbert Style

"The world only goes round by misunderstanding." - Charles Baudelaire


Dilbert: Is it my imagination or is your pricing intentionally confusing?

Vendor: It's intentionally confusing. That way you can't compare our prices to our competitors' prices.

Our competitors do the same thing. It's called a Confusopoly.

We all get our fair share of confused customers and we don't need to lower our prices to compete.

We use the profits from our anti-competitive behavior to fund innovation.

So don't ruin a good system by trying to understand what you're buying.

Dilbert: That almost sounds reasonable.
