This morning, the radio news is again full of reports about S21. The project continues, they want to sue the state of Baden-Württemberg and force it to continue paying part of the cost. At the same time, I hear opinions like: “you have to continue, even if, with today’s knowledge, the project would never start”.
This gives me pause. Because there is a golden business rule:
“Never throw good money after bad”.
It is especially true of you need “good money“ elsewhere as badly as the Deutsche Bundesbahn for infra-structure projects all over the place.
Except that sticking to this rule calls for courage and the readiness to make decisions!
