Hamburgs Nein zu Olympia 2024: Die Quittung - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Hamburger haben in einem Referendum die Olympia-Bewerbung für 2024 verhindert. Wundern muss man sich darüber nicht - es gibt zu viele gute Gründe für ein Nein. //&! bit.ly/1l1zdma // Kann man sich Olympia leisten in Zeiten von Austerity, Fiscal Pact, Schuldenbremse und Sozialem Abstieg? // Wer macht den Schotter? Advertisers und die Kumpanene der Kumpanei. // Wasser, Brot und Entertainment! Und dann ist das ganze garnicht echt und gerecht dank Doping. ///&! "Hamburg hat sich sehr damit geschmückt, eine Bewerbung abzugeben, die durch Etiketten wie Nachhaltigkeit, Umweltfreundlichkeit, auch Kosteneffizienz bestechen sollte." Wie London 2012?

Bumper payouts for housebuilding executives as market booms | Business | The Guardian
Two of Britain’s largest housebuilders, Berkeley Group and Persimmon, could hand out about £1bn to their top executives and managers in pay and bonuses over the next six years, boosted by strong UK house prices and government-subsidies for home-buyers. Tony Pidgley, founder and executive chairman at Berkeley, is expected to face tough questions on Tuesday at the group’s shareholder meeting near its headquarters in leafy Cobham, Surrey, after it emerged last month that his pay package last year was worth £23.3m. [...] Meanwhile, executives at Persimmon, the UK’s largest housebuilder, also have a Berkeley-style incentive scheme that is one of the most generous to be found at a London stock market-listed firm. [...] Berkeley’s share price has risen more than 40% since the election of a Conservative government in May, [...] [bonuses] “entirely based on short-term performance”.

▶ Michael Sandel: Why we shouldn't trust markets with our civic life - YouTube
n the past three decades, says Michael Sandel, the US has drifted from a market economy to a market society; it's fair to say that an American's experience of shared civic life depends on how much money they have. (Three key examples: access to education, access to justice, political influence.) In a talk and audience discussion, Sandel asks us to think honestly on this question: In our current democracy, is too much for sale?
