And the greed rolls on…
I see that Kellogg’s is planning to split the company into three separate companies. The only reason to do this is to enrich a few managers, the investment bank handling the IPO, and hedge funds.
This got me thinking. I wonder what Karl Marx would write, if he were alive.
I have not read Das Kapital (I should, because it continues to cause a stir). I believe he complains about how workers were treated and the tyranny of capitalist. Nothing and/or little has changed, except that the rules made by politicians favour capitalist even more. (No, I am not a communist.)
Inflation is increasing, causing a drastic rise in cost of living for the little people. Governments are making adjustments to aid corporations, shareholders, hedge funds, and banks, but nothing help those suffering.
What would Karl have to say about that?
