Reflections on Money, Morality and an Uncertain World
If you’re seeking riches in the global economy, remember: It’s not just about the money.
Depending on your perspective, HSBC Chairman Stephen Green’s analysis of the global economy and the moral ambiguities that will inevitably shape society’s evolution is either brilliant or convoluted. It may be both. Readers will applaud Green’s intellect as he draws from fertile philosophical, literary and religious sources to frame his take on civilization’s economic beginnings and development. The one drawback is that his obsession with detail and stylistic prose can sometimes obscure his fundamental points. Green ponders where society is headed in this age of globalization and economic uncertainty, and how people will adapt without compromising their humanity. getAbstract finds that his hopeful prescription positions him more as a philosopher than as a major banking executive, though he willingly shoulders both roles.
