City Hall 101
Everything is viewed as a "pot of money".  The Goal: for each individual fiefdom to take and control as many 'pots of money' as fast as possible while maintaining at least the pretense of doing something along the lines of public services.  
The check sum: the public vote. There is no QA/QC, and in Los Angeles - no repercussions, apparently.

Business 101
The Goal: provide a highly desired or much needed service or product as quickly, efficiently and in the most cost-effective manner possible to maximize profit.  
The check sum: net profit.

Any questions?
