It's the demand of ever-increasing profits that is destroying so many good things in life. They aren't happy with reasonable profits any more. They have to increase profits. And increase golden parachutes. And increase CEO perks. But never does it seem they want to increase customer satisfaction. If Leica goes that route, it's in trouble. And I think they know that. Which is why I don't bemoan the fate of Leica every time someone reports a speck of dust on a new camera out of the box and says the bean-counters are at work. I'm a stock-holder too. But I don't demand they sell their children on the black market to make sure I get to pay big green fees when I retire.
