Issue 118 - 01 | Repairing the Hole in the Boat: How the Poor Can Save Capitalism

By John Hope Bryant
Published June 11, 2014 9:00 a.m.
“What if there was a way to use the power of free market enterprise to lift every American and indeed every human being on the planet to a level of dignity, inclusion, fulfillment, engagement, economic security and stability? Wouldn’t that be a truly noble cause?

I think we are sitting at a rare moment in history where we have an opportunity to change our nation and our world. Everything seems to be broken economically, socially, and politically. All the numbers are headed in the wrong direction. But the Bible says, where there is no vision, the people perish. We’ve got to have a vision that’s larger than ourselves. We’ve got to be about we, and not about me; what we have to give, not just what we have to get. We need to turn traditional thinking on its head, and present a new vision for America. We need to deliver “The Memo” to a new generation of BUILDERS of the American Dream.”
