"…Now, let me be clear, if I have not been up until now. I am not advocating a version of socialism, and surely nothing than even resembles a communism, but capitalism and free enterprise version 2.0 or 3.0 itself. A good capitalism that actually builds value for society and that serves individuals beyond the providers of that capital, while simultaneously speaking to one’s own personal and selfish sense of prosperity in the same breath. One that acknowledges that we are selfish, and advocates a “good selfishness,” where we benefit but everyone else benefits more. It is doing well and doing good, and doing well by doing good.
Good capitalism is a sea where all boats rise, and not just yachts.
I am also advocating a form of love leadership suitable for the most hard-nosed, hard-driving business leaders in the world today. Individuals who eat nails for breakfast, and who want to build entirely new enterprises by lunch. The love leadership model I promote is hard, not soft; very hard. In sum, I am talking about nothing short of the future of leadership, and sustainable prosperity, itself."
