The discussion seems to be focusing on the minutiae of Dilber comic strips. How about a comment on the idea in the strip?

"Where did the first money come from?" is a profound question. Many of our current troubles in politics and what corporations are demanding from politicians comes from the inability of managers to ask this question of themselves - and to seek out answers.

As an engineer myself (retired) I have a devil of a time to get people to let go of the myths and really think about this question.

For the answer to "Where did the first money come from?" see "Making Money" by Terry Pratchett.

@ Rickapolis:

In a strip long ago, that "tablet" was revealed as being an Etch A Sketch®.
An all-time classic.

And Oh! How I wish I'd thought of the line "it takes money to waste money!" I'm SO going to steal it. It's the motto that the PHBs I work for live by. Even, I think, live for.

In the previous day's cartoon, the PHB was talking about idiots, and now he's talking about money - hummmm.....
