How Business Creates Sustainable "Life Chances"
Tonight, I would like to discuss how business and government must work together to create the conditions that advance society and preserve freedom. I believe the world's current economic crisis shows why this is important, and I believe that by working together, we can create the "life chances" for people that Lord Ralf Dahrendorf believed are the hallmark of a free society.
I want to start by saying very clearly that I am not like Lord Dahrendorf, whom you honor in this colloquium. He was first a political prisoner, and later a political philosopher. I am a businessman.
