There's an old business-world proverb about the importance of recruiting smart employees:

"A" managers hire "A" people; "B" managers hire "C" people.

To a mathematical mind, however, this raises the inevitable question:

Who hires the "B" people?

(the above is perhaps half-remembered from a book about the early years of Apple Computer --- maybe something by or about Guy Kawasaki and/or Steven Jobs? ... a reference would be greatly appreciated! ... and more seriously, deep apologies for my likely Latin garble in the title of this page --- please, if anyone could advise me: what is the right conjugation for "conduco" = "hire" in this context? --- I need something perhaps analogous to "Quid custodiet ipsos custodes?" = "Who shall watch the watchers?" ... tnx! - ^z)
