Needed: A Hierarchy of Cultural Needs
Can Anyone Get Consumer Reports to Notice White Collar Crime?
Consumer Reports Urges Creating Federal Regulations for Arsenic Levels in Rice
Someone warn them that you can boil both frogs & the 99% in unregulated rice-cookers?
Look, I'm all for protecting consumers from arsenic in rice. Yet out of the millions of real concerns besetting US consumers, why on earth is there no statistically relevant HIERARCHY of needs? Maslow must be turning over in his grave. Why on Earth hasn't Consumer Reports noticed the primacy of white collar crime since at least 1990?
We need our own statement on A Hierarchy of Cultural Needs.
ps: That statement absolutely MUST NOT come from economists. It has to be a consensus from all the 1900 or so professions already recognized by the NAICS. It's not just war and generals. EVERY process is too important to be left to the presumed process owners.
