Corporate Accidents

When a corporation has an accident, such as allowing a mine tailings pond to overflow into pristine lakes and rivers, it quite different from when you or I have an accident such as spilling a glass of juice. Their computers coldly calculate the risks and costs and decide just how many corners to cut with public safety. They optimise for profit, nothing else. An industrial accident is a deliberate choice.
