Book Review – The Responsibility R...

I must admit I had a bit of a hard time finishing this book – was a bit granola – but nevertheless – points out that in the long term – we do have to become good corporate citizens. One thing that stuck in my mind is that any company that feeds consumptions or manufacturing is inherently polluting – so its only a question of how much.   Some nice vignettes about business stories, especially what they are doing at Linden Labs.   I actually quite liked what Linden has done.    Only thing is that lot of these business have not stood the...
