A quote from: Michael Kaiser, President of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts:

“My staff is very familiar with my ardent desire for cost reduction. I joke that I squeeze every nickel until the buffalo poops. And I do. I have yet to find a budget that I cannot cut. I find waste and inefficiency everywhere”.

Now this should be the new mantra for fiscal responsibility all over the world and not just in cultural/arts institutions alone!

Well stated Michael Kaiser, yet again!
