About the book
Empathy: The ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy is a powerful human emotion. It is the reason we have advanced as a civilization. It is this emotion, combined with America’s adoption of capitalism through the American Revolution, that allowed our country’s greatest inventors and innovators to improve our world in profound ways. Thanks to their innovation and the economies of scale of our corporations we have been able to nurture technology and harness our natural resources bringing us to where we are today. Our best chance to fully embrace innovation and technology and move humanity forward is to empower corporations to utilize the human emotion of empathy.
