Long Waves 05-03-2017 The importance of disinterest: capitalism vs. democracy

Long Waves

Today’s show explores the necessity of disinterest for the creation of a common good and for democratic processes. Based on the writing of JR Saul and S. Wolin, I argue that self-interest cannot create a shared good. By law and definition, corporations act in their own self interest; they have no conception of a shared good that does not directly benefit them. I also explore this concept on the international level, examining how corporate influence in international affairs through agencies such as the CFR are damaging to other countries and undermine their creation of democratic structures. Yemen and Venezuela are explored as case studies.
