Vorsprung durch Grünwasch

Ersparen Sie Grün? Im ewigen Kampf um die relative Kapitalisierung freut Bloomberg sich am Reputationsschaden einer populären Deutschen Grünwaschanlage. Trotz Kreditschwemme ist der Job der Vermögensverwalter nicht einfacher geworden. Der Anleger erwartet zwar Bitcoinartige Gewinne, möchte aber nicht mehr im Sklavenhandel stecken, zumindest nicht wissentlich, da das zu unangenehmen Schlafstörungen führt. Sklavenfreier Zucker? So versprechen … Continue reading Vorsprung durch Grünwasch

Cop-out CoP and the elephant in the room

I am copping out of my CoP post. I am way off target. Instead of editing my article reviews I got lost in a meandering mishmash of a maybe essay on money, value and growth. Like "Growth! What Growth?" Trying to think (too) big was probably inspired by the Dawn of Everything. I've had too … Continue reading Cop-out CoP and the elephant in the room

Never seen this before. This is different. This can't be … Continue reading Greta, Mnuchin and PlanB

Little Big Bill’s Techno Fix

Little Bill has lent his big billionaire voice to de-coupling, the idea that traditional capitalist growth can be cleansed of its polluting effects.  Better than denial or obstruction? Absolutely.

Or hung like a false prophet. Some are annoyed. Some have reservations. And some are changing their minds. I was about Greta Thunberg's … Continue reading The Limits To Greta
