55er: Business As Usual

The senior management was regretful. The incident shouldn't have occurred. Lives were lost.
But, the show had to go on. A handful of deaths didn't justify an additional safety budget. Or the ensuing cut in profits

So, it was back to business as usual; the potentially fatal flaw un-rectified. After all, it's a capitalist world.

  • Can you tell the story behind that?

  • @Akshay: This was not in relation to any particular incident. Just a generic opinion about capitalism. Whether you attach the Bhopal gas tragedy or the Carlton fire or anything to it - the heart of the matter remains the same.
