    You can't sway gardeners. They think green fingers equate to green credentials and that none of their imported Japanese knotweed or rhododendrons would ever want to escape.

    She's a gardener; it doesn't matter how she qualifies the gardening.

    That'd be the same Seth Klarman who made nice investments capitalising on the failings of the 2008 crash... amounting turning $27 million into $1.5 billion as people lost their homes and their livelihoods. And who was openly supportive of Hilary Clinton and doesn't like the more protectionist approach of Trump because it stifles opportunities for him to make money while maybe doing something for regular people after they perceived they were stiffed under Obama?

    I was under the impression you were a socialist... but here you are hawking the words of a billionaire because... ? The Guardian said it? Also... lots of billionaires and investors will have addressed Harvard Business School and not given out the message being pushed here... so they don't get a mention.

    I'm agreeing with Klarman's point that capitalism needs fixing, though I suspect hi and me would not see eye to eye on the manner in which it should be fixed. I'm a thorough-going Nordic capitalist in which the state has a huge role to play in reining in capitalism's destruction of society, with taxation designed to achieve redistribution of wealth, and every company forced to respect the environment.
