Dumbest "socially responsible" businessman ever
Kalle Lasn comes off as a complete idiot, a certifiable screw-up of a human being, and someone you would want to do business with only after receiving a full frontal lobotomy.
He co-founded the magazine AdBusters.
My biggest beef with Lasn? In the article, he details his plans to create an "anti-Nike" shoe. I leave the reasons why as an exercise to the reader. One of his goals was to have them manufactured "right" - appparently meaning no sweat-shops, wages that would not activate his white liberal guilt, the usual drivel.
His solution? Contract with an Indonesian manufacturer, maybe someone in a less-than-first-world Asian nation?
They outsourced production to Portugal.
That's right. Not a 3rd-world country. Not a struggling democracy. A member of the European Union.
Guess them poor Asian working stiffs will just have to have one less job opportunity...
