December 31, 2017, Beijing, a man riding an OFO under blue sky via the orderly arranged sharing bikes. It is like a fresh start of the New Year. As a response to climate change, more and more citizens choose Bike-sharing as a way of transportation. It effectively reduces the emission of PM2.5, the major source of Smog, and Carbon Dioxide. The booming of Bike-sharing in China last year offered the preconditions of trip mood change. This kind of Bike-sharing service is provided by private corporations like OFO showing in the picture. The service is now widely spread all over China and became the dominant force of public transportation. I believe Bike-sharing can be one of the solutions of combating climate change.

Greed, Movies, and Capitalism with Ethicist John Paul Rollert

Every capitalist economy struggles with how to come to terms with greed, says John Paul Rollert, an expert on the intellectual history of capitalism.

Where do we stand now? How can we rehabilitate capitalism?
