Yep, Sepp Blatter is back for four more years as head of FIFA. I am a football/soccer fan, but admittedly know very little about the inner workings of FIFA – other than the fact that it borders on ridiculous to point out that it is corrupt. Check out The Telegraph’s surprisingly balanced take here.
It is hard to imagine someone doing a worse job as the head of FIFA, yet Blatter will be with us for four more years. Here on TPS planet, we like to point out the challenges faced by any human-designed institutions. One such challenge is the status quo bias, that, when combined with a herd mentality, makes change in any organization very difficult. Looks like change in FIFA will just have to wait. Qatar 2022 anyone?
