A quote that stuck with me about capitalism is something along the lines of "There is a lot of work to be done in the world, and the fact it's not reflected as jobs is a big failing of the system". There is a huge gap IMO between the work that needs to be done on this planet (cleaning our oceans, planting forests, educating people, healing people) the jobs people do. The financial incentives are skewed in a terrible direction and it's a shame.
