Meghan - I appreciate the value that the Shared Value Initiative, and theCSV concept itself, is bringing to economies and societies. Professors Porter, Kramer and you, their colleagues, are to be given credit. The value Rosabeth Moss Kanter brings with her Vanguard Companies idea deserves notice too, as does the Conscious Capitalism idea of Mackey and Sisodia - as do others. Indeed, it is good that so many thought leaders are bringing thoughts and words to actions, even if only incrementally, rather than fully, through paradigm change.

I suggest you and your colleagues read two posts at to consider a truly transformational concept, a big idea, concerning value creation and capitalism. the posts are the ones dated June 24, 2014 and December 4, 2013. I look forward to hearing from you all.  My abbreviated narrative resume and purpose can be found at .

Best wishes.       Jack Haffey
