Mediocristan = Cost World, Extremistan = Throughput World. TOC lovers invited :)
Very good analysis. Popular and social interpretation.
I have been in Mediocristan as Cost World, Old Paradigm. This is Newtonian Linear World.
I am trying to switch to Extremistan as Throughput World, New Paradigm, Non-linear World. This is my TOC (Theory of Constraints) World.
I have found a lot of good stuff to criticize "forecasting" and "optimization".
It is a strong remainder for "keep away statistics if you are not familiar with it!"
