Feature Friday with Christopher Young

(NOTE: Apologies in advance for the volume of my microphone. It apparently didn’t fully show up for the interview after testing.)

“Action indeed is the sole medium of expression for ethics.” Jane Addams

My enthrallment with history didn’t start until I met Mr. Ed Powers.  Mr. Powers still teaches history where I went to high school and it’s he who lit the fuse.  To this day – been a whole lotta days since – I still remember something he said during a discussion about the Vietnam War.  To paraphrase, you can’t fight an -ism (e.g., Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Buddhism, etc.).  The -ism is an idea/philosophy/crutch utilized by people.  So for me, any argument for/against an -ism is really about people.

How’s this relate to episode 2021:11 of Did You Know That?  Christopher Young is all about people, specifically, the ethical actions of people in the business world.  (Please hold all snarky comments until after the interview.)  The world is made up of a lot of different -ism’s as they relate to business, which means there are a lot of people making business decisions on a second by second basis.  We talk about how they’re making those decisions and how they can be better.
