No Incentive To Stay Alive
The arguments against capitalism are well-known and have been made numerous times. Similarly with the description of capitalism as a mad economic system. On Newsnight, a couple of nights ago, a spokesman for BP complained that there was "no long-term incentivization" to combat climate change. I'm not sure that it's ever been put better. I'd certainly like to hear from anyone who has a quote as good as that. For BP, and other multinational oil companies, there is "no long-term incentivization" to stop the extinction of the human race. Thank you, Mr BP, for saying it so clearly.
