Phil Angelides, former State Treasurer of California who would have preferred an introduction as "the Governor of California" and who is now back in the private sector, as he put it, "by popular demand" addressed the Investors Circle conference. He congratulated the assembled for being on the vanguard of "tearing down the walls" between financial and social responsibility.
Said Angelides" "We need to think bigger. We need to mobilize capital to solve the major problems of society. Two of those problems, that must be solved, if we want a sustainable global economy, are:
- Redress global poverty
- Combat global warming
This is the key to the argument - any argument. Finding the way to meet the self-interest of those who disagree with you.
