    Great diary. You appear to have had them with your diagnosis, only to lose them with the cure. Sabotage Santa Claus®? I don't think so.

    Consumer power? Raising awareness about the responsibility of supporting corporations that are destructive to society? Absolutely.

    It's unfortunate to me that the main thrust of your post, in my opinion, that capitalism may be good for fostering innovation and growth motivation on one level, yet offers no remedy for its excesses and imbalances on another, is overshadoed by the Christmas argument.

    I keep going back to the Nash Equilibrium that: it is essential to have all the players work for their own economic self interists, but it is also essential that they work for the interest of the larger team.
