The part of capitalism that doesn't work for me is when capitalists make decisions in the way that Adam Smith suggested, which is that as long as you do everything in the interest of the investor, you're going to actually make the best decisions for all other stakeholders.

People say I'm bad at a lot of things. One I agree with is that I'm a bad driver.
