Quotations that took my eye

Capturing some interesting discourse

Political spectrum

On short term capitalism

Shareholder value is an outcome - not a strategy Shareholder value is a result, not a strategy…Your main constituencies are your employees, your customers, and your products.

On equality

Netherlands in the most unequal place on earth

My take aways:

  1. Houses are expensive so low middle class need to borrow more than can earn and hence people are under water (i.e. negative net worth)
  2. Dutch have many old (~400 years) wealthy families

On code / digitisation

If you are not looking at code, what are you doing?
