Mad men and self-interest and global warming

New movie - "Up in the Air" - might be interesting - re corporate america, job losses; attitudes (which echo those helping power global warming I think):

economic wise men peer down at the country from a hermetically sealed bubble of privilege and self-interest, much as Ryan does from the plane flying him to his next mass firing. And they tend to think, as Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs notoriously put it, that they are doing “God’s work” to sustain our free-market system.
