"When I became mayor of Atlanta, international firms were cautious about investing there because of a reputation of corruption. I gave every CEO I met with my personal home telephone number.....in 8 years as mayor more than $80 billion was invested in Atlanta by international firms, and the airport, then a Quonset hut, is now the busiest airport in the world, and we subsequently hosted the Atlanta Olympic Games. Honesty, integrity and a commitment to 'public purpose capitalism' led Atlanta from being a modest city from the South, to being today an international city on the world stage."
