Harvest?

The Grim Reaper is a Harvester.

And apparently so is Bain Capital

What is the definition of “harvest?”

The common meaning is that it is the act of gathering a crop that has matured.  Have you ever watched a harvest?  Generally speaking the live plants are killed in order for the harvester to gather the crop.  Is this what Bain Capital did to their invested companies.

Not in the literal sense, of course.  But to suggest that Bain Capital main purpose was to be a creator of jobs is disingenuous, at best.  It’s main and sole purpose was to provide profits for its investors.

Not a bad purpose to be sure, but tell that to the workers whose jobs are terminated in downsizing or outsourced in order to produce maximum profitability for Bain Capital investors.
