The fast money investments we made in the previous decade led to the disasters of today. Remember when people publicly protested against mining for coal? Last winter power went out for millions of homes, and people died of hypothermia because there was no electrical power in times of high demand for it. Remember when people bought stocks in Coca Cola and McDonald's to turn a quick buck? Comcast cable? Are the things we are doing today, as a result of our investing in the past, really the things we need and want?
