A prognosis
A prognosis?

  • NEED TO FLATTEN OUT THE ABOVE (TOP) CURVE WITH A FAIRER TAX CODE

  • MOVE FROM MINDLESS JOB CREATION TO ENCOURAGE INHERENT RESOURCEFULNESS IN PERSONS [SUCH AS STEVE JOBS]

  • MOVE FROM A DYSFUNCTIONAL US CONGRESS TO MORE EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REPRESENTATION [OVERTURN CITIZENS UNITED, INCREASE TRANSPARENCY AROUND LOBBYING, DO AWAY WITH FILIBUSTER, MAJORITY VOTING NOT 60-40 IN THE SENATE]

  • USE THE PEACE DIVIDEND WISELY AND NOT NEW WARS

  • INCLUDE A PUBLIC OPTION IN HEALTH [THE SWISS MODEL ADOPTED BY THE USA WONT WORK]

  • NEED CORPORATE AND PUBLIC RESPONSIBILITY THROUGH JUDICIOUS AND MORE COOPERATIVE CHOICES AROUND REGULATION

  • Journalist: Milton Friedman said the only social responsibililty of a corporation is to make a profit. What do you think of that? What do you think OWS would react to that

  • Newt Gringrich: It is amazing that the media never asks OWS people simple questions on what they are all about.

  • J: Like what?

  • NG: For instance. Do the occupants of Zuccotti Park know that without profits from Wall Street they wouldn’t have a place to demonstrate in. What do they say to that?

  • What do you think?


AND NOW?

  • Essentially there is still a lack of social RESPONSIBILITY

  • Fragmentation of the CSR concept has taken place

  • RESPONSIBILITY cannot be replaced by SUSTAINABILITY

  • Need for a new responsibility of GOVERNMENT
