The following is an excerpt.

STANFORD, Calif. — Whole Foods markets are big business in this part of the world, upscale havens for rich shoppers seeking “healthy” foods. But notwithstanding their financial success, the two co-CEOs of the company are utterly clueless.

When one of them, John Mackey, gave a talk to Stanford MBA students in 2010, it was replete with airy-fairy New Age ideas. “Why should the purpose of business be to make money?” he asked.

Whole Foods is widely referred to as “Whole Paycheck” — because that’s what you’ll spend shopping there.

There are more holes in Mackey’s worldview than in his stores’ insect-ravaged organic arugula.
