Good Profit?

Ford's billion dollar profit this quarter is no accident, and well worth studying. Stark illustration that not all of capitalism is greed. Like America itself it can be a foundation of hope.

In these times, people that have or steal money lose, people that grow money win. Earning follows contribution, eventually. As I understand it, some time ago Ford sold or monetized nearly all its assets to generate new products and reward deserving people. They went from owning nothing to creating something and owning what was created - in effect, recycling ingenuity.

Owning life by accumulating assets is not contributing. Creating for life is.
