We are drifting well off-topic and I recognise it. My choice is a mea culpa or a delete, so a mea culpa.
An old mate, the late Myron Ginsberg, had an office at GM Research when I first met him. After EDS was bought and established as a subsidiary Myron was marginalised and moved to an EDS office, offsite from GM.
He was not only charged rent, he was charged to use the conference room and had to hire the overhead projector if he wanted to use it, in addition to costs for phone and internet. The epitome of the 'MBA genus' where everything has a cost but not a value unless it produces dollars to 'the landlord'.
