Steve Keen — Super Corporate Heroes: Truth, Justice, and How Much Does It Pay?

 Steve Keen goes on a tear at the US.
One of the many great ironies of American culture is that a society which lauds capitalism is also home to the fantasy of the selfless SuperHero: entities ranging from an ordinary but wealthy human (Batman) to an extraordinary but poor Extra-Terrestrial (Superman), who spend their days saving us mere mortals, for no obvious recompense.

Well bollocks to all that! Meet “Super Corporate Heroes“—superheroes who are more in line with the actual American Way. These superheroes are employed by a Fortune 500 company, charge for their services—”if you wanna get rescued, you gotta pay insurance”—and live lifestyles ranging from opulent to the top billers, to just above the breadline for the only slightly super amongst them.
