    Is this the environmental problem as well?

    Superb article and some great quotes.

    I can't help wondering about the parallels to environmental and sustainability issues. Incumbents protecting their position and co-opting prominent environmentalists with the illusion that somehow both interests can be served by working together. Also the idea that by selectively deciding what we include in a profit calculation misses the wider and longer term costs - i.e the externalities.

    Sounds like a thought provoking discussion.
