There is an old maxim in the business world of “price, quality, service….. pick two”, meaning a business can be the best at any two of those but never all three. Accounting/Finance Depts can have efficiency or control as the top priority but never both. In all facets of life there are choices. Nobody can ever have it all. Concerning our highly computerized and integrated infrastructure, commerce, financial etc networks, as a society we have chosen efficiency and least cost over resiliency. When WWIII comes, what many perceive to be a strength (all those computerized and integrated systems) will prove to instead be our greatest weakness.
