Forget CSR and CSV, Let's Go for CGV -- Corporate Global Vision

Philanthrocapitalists are to be applauded for their abundant generosity in seeking and funding solutions to some of the world's most daunting challenges, including poverty, healthcare, education and the environment, just to name a few. And all of our personal charity and volunteer service is vital. But to a great extent, we are often trying to fix problems that are being created anew every day.

At the root of these systemic social failures are the practices of some -- not all -- companies that degrade the lives of the poorest people in the world who have no voice. As some leading companies have shown, if other companies and their boards of directors truly commit to a corporate global vision of justice and peace, then businesses can make greater profits than they ever imagined, and people throughout the world would have food on their tables and live in peace.

I'm calling this a Corporate Global Vision (CGV).
