How to Make Better Products for a Better World

No Longer Is It About "Just" Business

In the 21st century, the corporate bottom line WILL include line-item valuations for such intangible but measurable factors as transparency, governance, stakeholder control, and social response. World Inc. is really about People, Inc., but it is just one springboard into the future. Below you will find links to additional pages and resources on and off this site designed to help business thought leaders and decision-makers develop corporate strategies that will allow their companies to compete on price, quality, and social needs. THAT is the future of Capitalism.

The future of great business lies in man's comprehension of the principle of Balance in Natural Law and his determination to work with it instead of against it. The underlying principle of Balance in Nature's One Law is equality of interchange between the pairs of opposites in any transaction in Nature. That principle must eventually be observed by big business, and the go-getter salesman who selfishly thinks that the sale he makes is the only thing that counts is not giving equally for what he takes. Therefore, I say, that equal interchange of goods and service between buyer and seller is the keynote of tomorrow's business world when the vision of the modern business man awakens him to the wisdom of writing that policy into his code of ethics.

— Dr. Walter Russell
