We have The Yes Men at it again making bankers look like the idiots only they can achieve.
In releasing the Acceptable Risk Calculator, The Yes Men, via their DowEthics.com website, posed as Dow executives arguing that their experience making billions in profits while dancing on the knife edge of human misery gives them ideal credibility in helping other corporate immoral criminals make as much cash as possible while optimizing human death and suffering.
The fact that a number of bankers gleefully had their pix taken with Gilda the Golden Skeleton mascot indicates the depth of their inability to get irony. And the world is the better for it. Now let’s get off our ass and force our legislatures to reign in corporate banditry worldwide.
