One of the things that I realize is that if you look at big business, I mean, they – and what they fund and what they do, they don’t really – they don’t fund the small non-profit community-based organizations that really are out there on the front lines helping people

Food is a great metaphor
for the consolidation
of corporate power in the hands of very few, who are mostly
interested in their own profits and not the wellbeing

they’re exploiting or even the people eating

the practice and theory of production for profit and not primarily for use that now it has succeeded in making its jobs and products profitable and useless

If sustainability is going to take hold in the corporate sector in a big way – and we need it to – it will be when it produces big profits and faster growth. It won’t happen because of an optional
executive commitment to an abstract

Only by transforming
our own economy to one of peace can we make possible economic democracy in the Third World

, and you can have fun
and profit at various
times doing that.

Business isn’t some disembodied bloodless enterprise. Profit is fine – a sign that the customer honors
the value of what we do. But “enterprise” ( a lovely
