@embr alt text for parent toot:
Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: "Is curing patients a sustainable business model?"

@grainloom aah, thank you, I keep forgetting to fill that in >_<

@embr Oo
We live in strange days… Profit seems to be worth more than human lives 😧

@MartinShadok welcome to capitalism, working just as intended

@aeveltstra
But if I were you, I'd invest in torches and pitchforks. The potential market is much bigger πŸ€‘
@embr

@embr Sustainable for the environment af, as you'd remove some undesirable elements like those running Goldman Sachs (didn't they go broke and dissappear with the real estate crises??)

@resetreboot @embr They went broke, yeah, but Obama made us pay them for their losses so they could stay afloat and made sure we never got back the budget cuts to school/healthcare/etc. afterwards.

@KitsuneAlicia @embr Ahhhh, much like the rest of the banksters then. We need more guillotines!!!

@embr this is precisely why many many things should not be privatized/capitalized; healthcare, prison, education, ... and I'm not sure if there's an end to the list.

@embr Wow, they seriously asked this? Maybe they should think about this one, if that's what is important to them: "People who are alive tend to spend more money than people who are dead."

@embr
Guillotines are definitely a sustainable business model now or at least in the near future. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

@embr Short-term returns could be quite high, but in the long run we'd all be dead. You can't keep the profit margin high enough to attract investors when the population keeps dwindling.

@embr by definition, no. Eventually you run out of rich people to behead

@embr also from the brain geniouses at GS: we cured a thing. All things are cured now, right?

@embr No but we don't care cause we can break them down once we've finished with them and turn the guillotines into homes for the poor

@embr In the long run, no. The market always comes up a little short. :)

@embr nah, you'll eventually run out of necks.
Buts that's sorta the idea isn't it. Sure it isn't sustainable, but it's certainly fucking necessary.

Are guilotines a sustainable business model? No.
Are guilotines the solution to our world's business problem?
Hell yeah.
