The purpose of business...
...isn't (only) to make money.
Nor is it to proliferate meaningless work.
And certainly not to take from the planet more than it gives.
It's a good question.
What now is the purpose of business?
And no, I'm not talking about your 'Why' -- not that that isn't important. I mean, with planetary collapse not that far off, a mass explosion of population easily predictable and less, much less of everything, surely now is the time for all companies, NFPs and public bodies to come together with a common aim beyond shareholder or anything value.
But then again, like so many things in life, we'll turn a blind eye, plough on regardless and leave it to some other idiot to sort out.
