Power, Greed, & Money Does Some Good

22 April 2010 | talking about Giving Back

As many of you know, I am a big follower of the world in terms of money flow. I love all aspects of investment. I love all aspects of business. No one would ever call me a hippy. I am as capitalistic as they come. Most would say I would sell my first born to make a buck. While not true you get the point.

All while I aline myself with the group of people that think profit is the end all be all. One thing that I think capitalistic America does so well is giving back. This is something I do not think any other capital based country does as well as the US. We give back on a constant bases and will really rally when called to action.

I write this while I watch American Idol's "Idol Gives Back" show, (http://www.americanidol.com). It reminded me of the show that aired a few months back to raise funds for Haiti.

There is plenty to complain about American Greed. There is plenty to complain about our profit motivated society but one amazing bi-product is the give back americans have and the speed at which we can give back if call upon.

Have you given back lately?
