Work ought to be about making meaning not just money

There is a significant conversation in our country about the role of money, profit and business. There are people on may sides of the discussion.

The current presidential campaign and the wealth of Mit Romney has caused people to come to the defense of making money, and a lot of money.

There are those who want to say that the American dream is about making money or getting wealthy. And even more there are those who say that the prime role of business is to generate profits for owners and share holders.

I disagree, I think the only sustainable attitude around work or business is to make meaning not just money.

Here is a bit from my radio show where I try to make that point.
