2.5: The limits of moral capitalism

An update on moral capitalism, business as an unofficial part of American checks and balances and the right to eat waffles on this mini episode.

On this mini episode, we wanted to follow up on a conversation in this week’s show about the business community at large, and the tech industry in particular, acting as an unofficial part of the checks and balances in the U.S. government. 

We also heard from you about whether businesses like Starbucks should even attempt “moral capitalism.” The coffee giant plans to hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years, and it’s gotten some backlash for it.

None of us is as smart as all of us.

No matter how bananapants your day is, “Make Me Smart” is here to help you through it all— 5 days a week.

It’s never just a one-way conversation. Your questions, reactions, and donations are a vital part of the show. And we’re grateful for every single one.
