Sneak has always thought it a bit rich when economists start having a go at the IT industry, particularly when they represent one of the few sectors that can make IT professionals look reliable.
Ask five economists for their opinion on something, and you’ll get five different answers, at least with the IT industry you’ll get the same solution, albeit after numerous delays and spec changes.
A recent note from everyone's favourite right wing think tank (though Sneak is always a little confused as to how much thinking actually goes on in these tanks) the Adam Smith Institute, said: "Have you noticed how IT people resemble drug dealers? They both call their clients ‘users’ and though both will give you a fix over the phone, you’ll pay a lot for it. And their clients are over the moon when their stuff works, but want to kill them when it doesn’t."
Well, if we’re being bitchy about it, Sneak would just like to note the similarity between economists and some of the scantily clad neighbours found hanging around doorways near his Soho office. "They’ll say anything you want them to say, as long as you pay them enough."
