    • So true! And incentives are designed to pressure employees (I’m thinking upper and middle management) to comply with the greed creed — AKA corporate culture, or competition, or cheating.

  • I run a Google Alert on the name Daniel Geiger to see if there is any news of his premature death within the Florida Department of Corrections (Daniel survived the scalding torture shower that infamously killed Darren Rainey; he died after transfer to another facility). Through that alert, I receive Crains New York Business reporter Daniel Geiger’s stories. It is likely in those stories that I read of Netflix insider trading that had officers selling significant amount of shares ahead of awarding themselves millions of dollars in bonuses. I’d like to be able to believe that Netflix is letting Dark Money’s creators have free reign on their documentary series, but I frankly can’t.

    • My gosh! The real problem with corruption is that corrupt activities are legal. A conflict of interest doesn’t seem to mean anything in politics or business, anymore. Only small-time administrators, mental health counselors, and kite-flyers need to worry about such a thing!

      • It would be great if our legislative “small government” proponents had Pinocchio noses, so that every time they moved a bill forward that betrays their constituency, their noses would grow. Many would be unable to board an elevator at the end of the first day of a session.

      • LOL. They would probably tell the constituency that noses grow when you tell the truth. Then they would shame the people for being poor and for having short noses.

      • You’re right – legislators would claim that extreme Pinocchio nose length indicated “truthiness.” Best laugh of the day, JoAnn! (But then again, I’ve only read one Trump Tweet.)

  • Thanks for the heads up, JoAnn.

    Video clip: “I’m a business person.” This response to the question about whether he thought he was a moral person struck a nerve. During the year I worked at building my import-export trade services, sole-proprietor business, I received a similar response from a Californian businessman with whom I was negotiating a potential contract on behalf of a Brazilian firm.

    “This is business,” my American counterpart said to me when I attempted to get a fair deal for my client. Up to that point, I had thought that I was dealing with a person of integrity.

    This is business.

    • Shameful.

      Contrary to less government, we need government regulations to protect customers, consumers, workers, and the environment. If certain business practices wreak havoc on the innocent, there should be laws against such practices.

      And our culture needs to stop being awed by money. Wealth is not the equivalent of merit.

  • Those who don’t suspect or know about this very thing have their heads buried deep in the sands of propagandized conservationism. Thanks, JoAnn, for the heads up on this documentary.
