What have we learned from the mistakes that caused the GFC?

I was interested in this Harvard Business School article about whether or not we have learned from the mistakes that caused the GFC. The authors of this article say there has been real progress. They also lament missed opportunities and remaining challenges.

I was also interested in a further HBS article that argues fixing climate change should be left to the markets

I don’t think so. We left finance to the markets did we not?

Our challenges are simply too big for one sector of society to solve. Sustainability requires all of us working together and this requires putting aside ideaologies and finding a shared-view of the way forward. 

Politicians think they rule the world and they keep trying to prove it as evidenced by the stupidity going on in between Republicans and Democrats in America that if unresolved may again bring our world to it’s knees.

Corporations rule our world. Corporations don’t exist of course without employees and customers. We the citizens of the world have a clear choice in my view and we all need to take a stand.

Which side of the fence are you on? And what are you doing about it?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
