Last year, German supermarket Lidl reportedly cancelled a SAP project after spending around £500m trying to make it work.
That seems a deal of money.
Apart from the fact I've never bought into the superior efficiency of Private Enterprise, I've lost the will to understand the modern world. Needful things like public lavatories and libraries are closed --- not for lack of use, but for costfulness --- whilst capitalists * throw away huge sums just through... incompetence ? carelessness ? stupidity ?
* Nothing personal against Lidl, as supermarkets go, they seem quite good.
