Dutch Food for Thought

“If you are not paying something, you are not the customer…

…but the product being sold…”

Wisdom from Prof. Dr. Jan Cobbenhagen at Maastricht University. Think about it the next time you use Google or Facebook.

    This is a great comment. Using Jan’s illustration of pigs . . .
    One pig comments,”Isn’t it great that we don’t have to pay for the barn!”
    Another pig comments, “Yeh! And the food is free, too!”
    Given the room and board, you might think the pigs are customers.
    Guess who is the product being sold?
    Good stuff.
