VIDEO: How Does Entrepreneurship Promote Human Flourishing?

Today, we’re sharing another video from this year’s Values & Capitalism Summer Conference.

This address comes from Peter Greer, the president and CEO of HOPE International and co-author of the soon-to-be-released V&C book ”Entrepreneurship for Human Flourishing.” With the help of stories about his son selling beans in Rwanda and his work in Haiti, Greer makes the case for why business, entrepreneurship, and job creation are our greatest tools in the war on poverty. For those interested in helping others, careers in non-profits and charities aren’t morally superior to the work of everyday businesspeople. For Greer, business is a sacred calling that has the potential to promote incredible human flourishing in the world.
