Business can both do good and do well. But acting on this principle requires us to reframe our notions of profit, wealth, and success. The ultimate measure of economic strength—on local, national, and global levels—includes the well-being of all people, not just an elite few. Humane economic policy reduces financial inequality while allowing for entrepreneurial dynamism, and it respects the truths listed below.
- Loving relationships of all kinds and meaningful work, which yields more than money, are keys to happiness.
- Economic freedom can be balanced with altruism.
- Humane economic policy is guided by compassion, not self-interest.
- Businesses cannot be a force for good when profit is the only yardstick for success.
