Virtues on the Global Scale

I would highly recommend listening to Naomi Klein’s talk “Addicted to Risk” recorded at TEDWomen (Dec. 2010). It is about 20 minutes. Her talk is an excellent analysis of the recklessness of some leadership in business and government. Her talk is in essence a call for greater balance in certain virtues: moderation (as opposed to greed); confidence (as opposed to hubris and overconfidence); foresight (as opposed to a lack thereof); optimism (as opposed to overoptimism); excellence (as opposed to a lack thereof); and wisdom (as opposed to ignorance).
