Capitalism Smothers the Sharing Economy on Feed 44

C4SS Feed 44 presents Chad Nelson‘s “Capitalism Smothers the Sharing Economy” read by Mike Gogulski and edited by Nick Ford.

That’s the name of their game: try to transcend the set boundaries of capitalism and you’ll be lassoed back in so as not to upset the apple cart. It’s all the more shameful that such parasitism is sold to the public by outfits who claim to be looking out for the good of the consumer.
