Perusing the news, I learned that orchestras across the US are
lacking some key members. Vacancies in key instruments.
Some are looking to get quality members, but some are
leaving the vacancies to save money. What does this
have to do with the WF? Well, Bruce Ridge, chairman of
the International Conference of Symphony and Opera Musicians,
said this about leaving holes:

"No business ever solved a financial problem by offering an
inferior product to the public."

Anyone want to comment on that? Notice this quote is not
necessarily saying a superior product means business success.

    absolutely i agree with this. though some businesses try to cut the costs and even compromise on the quality of the product.though in the short run it works fine but in the longer run it harms the reputation of the business.

      I like this quote very much because its so true. name one company that stood the test of time with an inferior product.

      for a company to just compete they must have a superior product, i beleive the marketing and support differentiate the rest.

        Microsoft :p - Sorry, I had to. I do agree though that the best way to create a lasting impact is to provide something extraordinary. It's all about creating value. Your value given = (over time) your value received.

          Let's not forget that apple just surpassed them in market capitalization.
          Google is set to jump from 3rd over them.

          Google makes more per employee than either apple or MS.

          Apple 10 years ago was a dead company. Then the iproducts hit.

        Every company may put out a bad product. But they can
        rebound. I forgot MS has a little winner with the xbox.

        The point was it's hard to lower quality to save money, then
        try and be successful.

      I do not buy this argument that ms offers inferior products. their desktop OS are the still the most user friendly and effective.IDEs offered by them for the speedy development in their programming languages are the best in market.

        Wasn't it Oscar Wilde who said that "a cynic knows the cost of everything but the value of nothing"?

        There is a danger in the downward shift to compete on price because inevitably quality suffers. If you want quality there is a premium.
