Acrylic painting Who Can You Trust? by Bernard Scanlan

Who Can You Trust?

If you can't trust a multibillion dollar corporation to do the right thing, who can you trust? The alleged free market is freest to those who have the most money, and is not free at all to those with little or no money. Walmart, or British Petroleum, has virtually all the "freedom" to compete against local, privately owned businesses or environmental interests. With the banner of "prosperity" and "economic growth" corporations degrade farms, forests, ecosystems, rural towns, and watersheds. 22 X 22 framed under plexiglass; acrylic on newspaper.
