(644) Canada’s elites

PolozyJian Ghomeshi gives us a glimpse into the character and psychology of Canada’s elites. Enough to make us shudder.  Now Stephen Poloz adds something to the profile.  Poloz is a $400k-a-year central banker who suggests serfdom to his country’s young people as they face record unemployment.  With these shallow, narcissistic and glib role models oozing an odd admixture of indifference and authoritarianism what are the youth to make of their elders?  The same elders soon to be at the pension counter.
