Capitalists are driven by a blind imperative to pursue the most accessible and immediate and highest possible profits, no matter how irrationally they’re obtained, and regardless of their personal desires. They can’t care whether or not what’s produced is useful or good. For destroying the environment to maximize profits, executives get promoted. For changing their policies out of concern for the environment, and making less profit, they’d be replaced.
