Corruption Kills

Scarecrow uses the failure of Japan’s nuclear regulatory regime to remind us of the critically important point that political corruption isn’t just about greedy corporations cutting shady deals to skim a little extra off of the public trough – when safety corners are cut because captive revolving-door regulators look the other way, people DIE.  And sometimes it’s a lot of people.

But money almost always trumps morality and civic responsibility, and even simple humanity, thus making disasters and tragedies not just unavoidable, but inevitable.
