Capitalism’s Fault Lines

Richard A. Posner argues that “the antics of crooks and fools” are not to blame for the financial crisis, but rather flaws in the system itself.


In July, a reactor at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in northern Niigata prefecture suffered radioactive leaks and other malfunctions during a magnitude-6.8 quake that killed 11 people and injured more than 1,000. The plant is undergoing repairs and a series of tests.
Preliminary studies of the surrounding area have shown that a fault line may extend near the plant. The government has since said it planned to overhaul earthquake safety standards at plants across the nation.
