You Want The Truth?

Think you can handle it?

You may have seen the TED talk by Daniel Pink that I shared last year.

Or, perhaps you’ve read his book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us. If not, I highly recommend it.

If you’re not familiar with his work, take 10 minutes and watch this. It’s very entertaining:

So much for the Wall Street theory that the brilliant minds that gave us our current economic morass must have ginormous hundred million dollar bonuses every quarter or they’ll leave and play somewhere else.

This also makes the $15 MILLION in executive bonuses that a bankrupt Tribune company wants included in its reorganization plan worse than pathetic; it makes them obscene.

It’s time to put a face — and a limit — on greed, because we now have the science to do so.
