Bono goes on an anti-capitalism rant

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

U2’s lead singer Bono recently knocked capitalism in an interview with CNBC. He called it a “wild beast and if not tamed, can and has chewed up a lot of lives.”

He also said, “Though it has taken more people out of extreme poverty that any other ‘ism,’ it’s caused a lot of damage, a lot of harm. We need to re-imagine it, repurpose it, remake it, in our own image and the image of this new generation coming through that really, really want their world back.”

Thanks to capitalism, U2 has shattered records with album sales and Bono himself has a net worth of $700 million.
