This example of the failure to think sufficiently and reasonably ahead is obvious to probably everyone. Ha ha funny etc.
Sadly, there’re more less obvious but as ridiculous examples everywhere in business practice today. Some are systemic. Others are unique to individual sectors or businesses.
Such silliness seem to stem from choosing to take a reactive and short term approach to meeting challenges. It is human nature I guess, not that this is an excuse not to do any better. After all, the success of your business could be at stake here.
I wonder to what extent this sort of short term fix-it approach played a part in contributing to the current economic situation?
