Lloyd's Bank in the UK recently banned all business travel on the 3rd week in any month.

Strange! Unworkable! It will just move travel to other weeks. These were the comments from the commentators.

However, early results suggest it is working. ... and in fact travel in the other weeks of the month is also down.

It might be too early to analyse this ... even to claim success (we need to see results over a longer timescale) but it does show that sometimes 'off the wall' ideas (thinking outside the box) have consequences that are difficult to predict.

And it also suggests that sometimes doing anything is better than doing nothing.
