It seemed like he was enumerating synonyms but yeah... They're two different things. And if the first thing that jumps to his mind is money when making moves it's not a good sign. Theoretically, your first motivation should be a passion for your job. The need to do the right thing that comes from within. Not just money in and out of itself. Sure the first goal of an organization is to have bigger profits but the motivation driving individuals can't only be that or they won't be the right fit. You need people who have a passion for what they're doing. That isn't really too surprising to me though. I always felt like PG was missing the point a little even though he was a competent guy. I now know what's wrong with him and why he's been a loser all this time and always will be.

Not to mention I really got the vibe he was trying to deflect blame and save his own hide. When he was enumerating the 3 ways to turn the ship around.. last was management (all of management not just him) doing everything possible.. but saying it as if everything had been done already.

I don't think I've ever heard a GM taking any kind of blame for sinking of a ship, not even after getting fired.
