bottom line

A Quote by Ray Anderson on bottom line, business, conscious business, conscious capitalism, honesty, sustainability, green, and environment

We need an honest bottom line. Today that bottom line is vastly subsidized. If anyone of us were paying the full cost of oil our bottom lines would be very different. If you internalize the cost of oil, look at the cost of the war in the Middle East or the cost of global warming for future generations, if you internalize those external costs and what you pay, that bottom line would look very different, what ever business you are in. If we somehow put a value on species extinction and factor that into our costs that bottom line would look very different. IF we put any resource depletion into costs our bottom line would change. So what we have is a dishonest market that does not take into account all the costs when it establishes its prices. We need an honest marketplace before we can let the market work for sustainability rather than against it as it works today.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on fiction, robot, corporate world, education, excess, mfa, publishing, publishing house, bottom line, plot, language, awakening, reader, beginners luke, writing, and purpose

If we’re to avoid becoming fiction robots in a corporate world, we must stop adding to our educational excesses, eschew the assembly line of MFAs and bottom-line publishing houses, commit ourselves to a way of writing that engages in a valiant struggle to push the limits of plot and language so as to awaken, not anaesthetize, the reader.

A Quote by Michael Lerner on bottom line, love, generosity, faith, spiritual, and hope

In place of the Old Bottom Line of money and power, a New Bottom Line of Love and Generosity is possible. People of all faiths need to shape a political and social movement that reaffirms the most generous, peace-oriented, social justice-committed, and loving truths of the spiritual heritage of the human race. It is only this resurrection of hope that can save us from a new wave of global hatred.

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on leadership, flatland, bottom line, and research

"Not only does a flatland perspective hurt the people who work within

organizations, but current data suggests that this flatland perspective

hurts an organization's bottom line. "
