Forgive my ignorance, but what does "tombstone culture" mean? (I've tried to search on the web for a meaning but I get surprising long list of tourist attractions).

A tombstone culture is one where there are known safety issues, but it isn't till after people die that the safety issue is finally addressed. i.e. plane crashes
