Perils And Waste Of Consultants!!

Among my dreams of life has been to be a dictator and my initial act would be to fire any and all consultants for any program in existence. Most payments to consultants– in any occupation or any aid program– should best be termed , the “Welfare System for Poor and Impoverished College Professors And Shylocks Seeking Money For Doing Nothing.” A recent study in Australia on how its aid to Papua New Guinea has functioned revealed that over half money allocated to stimulate business activity in that country went to pay consultants who worked on plans on how to spend the money. Only 30% of any money actually went to DO anything that would benefit an inhabitant of Papua New Guinea.

How about giving people money and entrusting them with the responsibility of deciding how best to use the money?
