Values: I personally respect billionaires because in order to get to that position, they have provided substantial amounts of value to substantial amounts of people, investors who took on that risk, and improved the quality of life or efficiency for many people (imagine a world without cars, iPhones, social media, computers, other technology or luxuries). In addition, their companies provide millions of jobs to people who also are able to attain a decent standard of living without any of the risks of entrepreneurship. However, I do acknowledge that in doing so inequality has arisen substantially, negative externalities have resulted and many problems emerged. I hope things improve through policy changes.
Vision: I do envision a future that is more equal where people are taught about finances in school and are taught valuable skills starting in high school. I also hope that the Environmental externalities are addressed and included in the prices of goods and services and that environmental laws become stronger. I also envision a world where tax loopholes like having offshore corporations in tax havens are closed so corporations contribute fairly toward society.
Action: I will be more conscious of the things I buy and where I buy them from. I will also support politicians who want to bring about positive change by improving education, closing tax loopholes and increasing equality and increasing environmental standards for corporations.
