Is Socially Responsible Capitalism Losing?

New Yorker

Many factors contributed to the troubles of these companies, but Cappelli notes how “vociferously the investment community seems to object to being nice to employees. It’s a reminder that, in the corporate world, things are constantly yielding to the finance guys.”

I would put it differently – we live in a society that is hostile to people – but friendly to Business. Business enhanced by the Computer, the Market, and the Media. And the fast buck.

Morality does not matter.

It takes guts to stand up to this monster – and most companies do not have this.
