Father Anselm Grün

If globalisation only benefits the strongest in society, then it will be a curse.
Father Anselm Grün, extract from his interview in cafebabel.com

Father Anselm Grün appeals to the responsibility of a global economy, demanding ‘net product through high regard for one another’. In his regular management seminars, Grün teaches that business and management should be undertaken with an open heart, tolerance and with understanding and empathy instead of thinking of oneself all the time. ‘The aim is not to judge, but to be understanding’ - the principle commandment of the Benedictines.

Is anybody listening I wonder?

I think so, PI. There are signs and this guy does speaking engagements (I think it was mentioned in his interview) which means his message is getting out there.

I don't think we have any choice but to begin listening.
