How to Break an Industry


Ezra Klein

Vox Media

There’s a common thread linking what’s wrong in Congress, in Silicon Valley, in the media, on Wall Street, and elsewhere. We look at wrongdoing in these spaces as the faults of individuals, but individuals respond to the systems they’re part of, and it’s the systems that are broken.

Vox co-founder and editor-at-large Ezra Klein explains how we've designed industries with incentives that make even good people act badly -- and what we can do about it.
