Save more!

Title

Save more!

Description

"Poet: Alekseyev, V. “The Fighting Pencil” group, 1972
They met the savings quotas by hook and crook, and curves,
But for the celebration they ate not just hors d’oeuvres.

Commentary:
The poster criticizes the practice of lavish banquets and receptions common in some organizations—usually, after a successful completion of the year's production plan, or achieving another major objective. In many cases, the plans were hardly carried out, and there was a lot of waste of 6me and resources. The authors concentrate on the contradiction between these attitudes of work ethics and unearned zestful celebration."
