Meet the C.E.O. of Whole Foods

Glenn Beck shares transcripts of a radio interview with Whole Foods C.E.O. John Mackey. Very interesting.

Down below the first ad picture, in discussing his book Conscious Capitalism, Mackey provides a good enough explanation (without a direct reference) of a philosophy I've tried to summarize as "seeking the Highest Good of all." We don't really want to succeed by trampling over everyone else, even when that seems necessary. We want others to get what they want, too, when that does not directly harm us, and we prefer to get what we want without doing harm to others.

Then there's the idea Beck put in the headline...

I have to admit I don't find books about business management the most enjoyable reads, even when they're written by Sam Walton, but if you want to read about business management Mackey is certainly a role model for these times...and Conscious Capitalism sounds likely to be more interesting than your typical book about business management.
