Largely degraded ecosystems have led to despair and a spiral of deepening poverty. Until individuals such as John D. Liu realized that it could be different. By letting go of old, destructive habits and a shift in thinking and doing. And by the power of collaboration. Actually, the solution is obvious, and can be achieved in a relatively simple manner.

Someone with a little insight into relationships and understanding of human nature sees the similarities in other parts of our world. Our economic, financial and political (governance) ecosystems are affected. Like the "ecosystem" of many large organizations. There is a way back, or rather, a way forward. By paying attention carefully, as John D. Liu, and then convincing the people, the workers, the organizations and institutions to act in a different way. Just leading by setting the example. This clip can serve as an inspirational source. Hope in a Changing Economy. Pass it on!

Is it about 'achievements', inspiring by setting the example, serving customers and employees or is it just about making a lot of money? This action of a VP of Goldman Sachs is a new step in a trend. He makes us looking into the mirror. Letting go of the old, on the way to an inspiring work environment.

TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.
