Boss: I'm negotiating a deal with the government of Elbonia. They agreed to buy a thousand dollars of our products. All I had to do was agree to let them steal all of our intellectual property.
Dilbert: Wouldn't it be better for us if they didn't steal our I.P.?
Boss: You have to look at the big picture. They also agreed to stop killing tens of thousands of our citizens with their illegal drug shipments.
Dilbert: Did they stop?
Boss: No, but they said they would.
Dilbert: Maybe you should negotiate harder.
Boss: And risk losing a thousand dollars of revenue?
