The only people who have actually done any real hardware related
work are all private companies or universities, they have not
bought the entire Agilent catalogue just for this and they're not
going to let go of any of it any time soon.

The main source of used T&M kit in the USA is military.  There is
nothing even closely as wasteful as that in .EU.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
