THE COMMON LAW OF BUSINESS
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s unwise to pay too little, too. When
you pay too much, you loose a little money… that is all. When you pay too
little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was
incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The Common Law of
business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot… it can’t be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk
you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.
