Avarice […] In the United States the CEOs of corporations that do harmful things such as making soft drinks and promoting them in schools are paid multiples of what teachers, scientists, and even Nobel Laureates get. Why are they not seen for what they are, individuals who harm others to make money? To me this [...]
