The Hydrogen Economy (1975 – not published in USA): Dr. Bockris states it quite clearly:”……. the separation of science and engineering from economics, and then from politics and sociology, is not possible. The questions to which this gives rise are very wide indeed. The International Corporations are the essence and the bastions of capitalism.  But they are geared to short-term considerations of profitability.  Will it be possible for them to work to develop an energy economy with considerations fifteen, twenty five or fifty years ahead? Is it possible for a corporation to hold back the maximization of yearly profit so that it can exist healthily one to two generations ahead? Would any shareholder ever vote to reduce their income, or even to avoid it, for a future generation? Capital is invested in the present technology.  Will its owners bring obsolescence to that technology, and so devalue their capital for the sake of long term environmental considerations? What of the effect of these concepts on the likelihood of the funding of new bases to the energy economy which do not use the machinery in which the capital is invested? Is massive research funding of new energy sources in the U.S. economy, which is so accountable to, and so affected by, corporate thinking, conceivable?

Capitalist’s Motto: In anal terms, the investor demands “I wants more (EBITDA) right now!” “Any which way you can” so long as you do not get caught – as exemplified and magnified by VW, Enron, Dole and a multitude of countless other ‘only one isolated black sheeps’, and topped with the failed banking specters witnessed at their apex by ‘the great depression of the XXI century’.

A Tax scale, devoid of intelligence: 1% of the population with 99% of the $ wealth, paying almost zero taxes, while 99% of the population with only 1% of the $ wealth pays the whole shebang for all – AND STILL BEING SQUEEZED DAILY.
