Capitalism, encapsulated

"People died because mistakes were made, and because safety was exchanged for efficiency and reduced cost."

- Raymond Seed, a professor of engineering at UC-Berkeley and the chief author of a report on the failure of the levees during Hurricane Katrina
As an interesting side note, the quote above appears in the version of a Los Angeles Times article as it appears in the San Jose Mercury News. However, in the LA Times story itself, the quote is nowhere to be found.

"People before profits" is not just a slogan. It's an imperative.
