Ambition and Idealism in Business

This NY Times article is a couple weeks old (from Davos) but highlights an important shift, that today more and more people who see inequities in the world are doing something by leading social change efforts in business rather than political rallies, marches, etc…

“With the American presidential campaign in full swing, the obvious way to change the world might seem to be through politics.

But growing numbers of young people are leaping into the fray and doing the job themselves. These are the social entrepreneurs, the 21st-century answer to the student protesters of the 1960s, and they are some of the most interesting people here at the World Economic Forum (not only because they’re half the age of everyone else).”
