The cages in modern zoos are better for animals than modern offices are for people, because zoo-directors know more about inborn needs of animals than company-directors about the innate needs of people. Result: offices where people suffer from less productivity, less creativity, less (!) communication, and more stress. Hence, these cheap offices are very expensive.
