  • There are good people everywhere
  • Some very good leaders
  • Relatively few bad folk ... but some are very powerful as heads of countries and criminal organizations
  • Some ultra wealthy folk ... amazing financial success but at an unknown social and environmental cost
.
ORGANIZATIONS ARE THE ECONOMY
Huge corporate organizations dominate everything.
Many investors and executives believe that profit is the main and only thing.
This is WRONG and very dangerous for society and the world!

  • Almost the whole of global GDP flows through corporate business organizations
  • They are responsible for the deployment of technological innovations to improve productivity
  • They optimize their decisions to maximize profits and benefit for stockholders.
  • To a great extent, they ignore social impact and environmental impact and push back against regulation ... even where there are critical needs
  • Without major and massive refocus by corporate organizations the global future is very bleak!
.
GOVERNMENTS HAVE IMPORTANT ROLE
Good government is more important than big government
... many critical services should be provided by government
