Thought for today

Some of us here at Eisenbrauns are reading The Essential Drucker by Peter Drucker, the management guru. Chapter 2 has a nice little thought:

None of our institutions exists by itself and is an end in itself. Every one is an organ of society and exists for the sake of society. Business is no exception. Free enterprise cannot be justified as being good for business; it can be justified only as being good for society.—page 16

Unfortunately, it seems that profit-chasing has taken over in most people's minds :( I think the Bible has a bit to say about greed, though, doesn't it?
