Branson /


Richard Branson recently announced his "B" team" initiative — refers both to business and to the need for a “Plan B” for capitalism. The idea is to form a small group of business leaders who will campaign for reforms to make capitalism more oriented to the long term and socially more responsible. Proper accounting for environmental impact, an end to quarterly reporting of results, and the phasing-out of fossil-fuel subsidies are likely to be near the top of the list. **Note: ALWAYS draw the A-Team van!
