A very good article by Jeffrey Sachs in Financial TImes, read the whole thing and think. However, I found more interesting the part where he refers to Andrew Carnegie – see if you can find the original source: ” The greatest capitalist of the second half of the 19th century, Andrew Carnegie developed his Gospel of Wealth, according to which the great wealth of the entrepreneur was not personal property but a trust for society.”
