's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: politics

“A common thread of these initiatives, many of which are linked to successful technology entrepreneurs, is that they insist entrepreneurship (rather than, for example, service) is the right way to solve social problems. They believe profit and social good can not only coexist, but can benefit each other so long as the motivations of those in charge are pure”. I can hear Billy Ray Valentine saying to Mr Uber and Mr Airbnb “Sounds like you guys are a couple of pimps.” First there were austerity measures designed to privatize natural resources and now these same minded people are using social rhetoric to justify greed and exploitation in bits and pieces over a vast platform. Like Voldemort it is brilliant and terrible.
