Financier, Halla Tomasdottir, describes an alternative approach to finance, investment, profits, and business. (Here's the link from TED Talks, if the video below doesn't work: http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/1030)
I think she might be on to something. Let's try it her way for a while.
Addendum: A female friend and corporate executive points out that Tomasdottir's approach isn't a "feminine approach." It's a "decent person" approach. I have to agree. It's an approach my father, uncles, and grandfather would have agreed with.
