(and in politics for that matter too). Hardly surprising when you consider the kind of personality traits that tend to be rewarded in the corporate world.
Once you consider that, everything makes sense, especially the complete insincerity of Boeing and attempt to shift blame after the accidents. We've seen enough too know that their belated remorse is noting more than PR, these guys do not change, and Boeing will not change unless the top management does. It's really quite shocking someone who has overseen the culture that caused these accidents can keep their job, considering the minor indiscretions us minions can be fired for.
There really is something rotten there, and people are incredibly naive if they think the CEOs care as much as anyone about accidents killing people. The sad truth is, they probably don't. That's their personality, that's how they got where they are. As I say, there's research on this and it explains a lot about the world we live in. If you're a psychopath and born poor, you end up in jail, if you're a psychopath and born rich you end up a CEO (or perhaps president...)
Spot on about the insincerity and attempting to shift blame. That's been by far the worst aspect about this for me.
