Ethics, Economy, and Entrepreneurship

In this book, Cathleen Johnson, Robert Lusch, and David Schmidtz discuss the connections between the ethical, economic, and entrepreneurial dimensions of a life well-lived.

The ethical question is: how do people have to live in order to make the world a better place with them than without them?

The economic question is: what kind of society makes people willing and able to use their talents in a way that is good for them and for the people around them?

The entrepreneurial question is: what does it take to show up in the marketplace with something that can take your community to a different level?
