Ben Ehrenreich: PG&E and the Nasty Side of Capitalism

11/5/2019
More
There’s a quote often attributed, perhaps incorrectly, to the great economist John Maynard Keynes that “Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men for the nastiest of motives will somehow work for the benefit of all.” The absurdity of this notion is being played out in real time in the form of smoke-filled … Continue reading Ben Ehrenreich: PG&E and the Nasty Side of Capitalism → The post Ben Ehrenreich: PG&E and the Nasty Side of Capitalism appeared first on Sea Change...
