Flesh or Currency?

#1. OK I'm a cynic. What is "human capital"? I guess it usually refers to people (that's the human side). But where does capital come in? That's money, right? Wouldn't you think that either we're human or we're money? Oh, but maybe corporate executives only look at their families and their friends as humans. And they look at their employees as capital. Worth thinking about.

So, OK, we're money; we're currency; sort of a commodity, I guess. Where does that lead? I guess it means we're expendable. That's comforting. Especially, when you've got a mortgage, tution payments, a credit card bill, etc. etc.

Think on it. We'll talk some more tomorrow morning.
