As Yuval Harari points out, "What is so special about us that allows for such cooperation? Unflatteringly, it is our talent for deluding ourselves. If you examine any large-scale human cooperation (or co-option), you will always find some imaginary story at its base. As long as many people believe in the same stories about gods, nations, money or human rights (memes and antitropes) - they follow the same laws and rules (of conduct)."

Look who's talking.
Somebody from a 'Killer Brand'.

"Let's destroy innovation and excitement around this place, boys. After all... We make a living fleeting Federal and municipal organizations with white vans and cars that NOBODY will steal..."

Remember the '72 Malibu SS? The '68 Impala? It's been a LONG time.

HAHAHA HAHA HA!

Guy from GM - one of the most heavily subsidized corporations in the HISTORY of CAPITALISM has something to say about building a business and a "brand"?

Donald Trump has good advice on how to be born rich, and pretend you are a financial wizard, too.

To be right about such wrong.

But Truth is beautiful.

There was hope, but as we said: we doubted it would lead to much more. It didn't: in April, the NY Fed won the dismissal of her lawsuit... The fact that the judge on the case was conflicted, and had a close relationship to Goldman which was represented by her husband also a lawyer, clearly was "irrelevant".

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
