John Taft, the CEO of RBC Wealth Management US and a frequent guest here on my show, has compiled the thoughts of some of Wall Street’s elite discussing how its power can be used for the greater good in a new book, A Force For Good. [Note: An RBC Wealth Advisor sponsored my conference, GoodCrowd14.] The book includes chapters written by Robert Shiller, Sheila Bair, Charles Ellis, Jack Bogle, Judd Gregg, Barbara Novick and David Blood. These power players describe the role of enlightened finance and its potential to drive good in society. Taft explains, “Enlightened finance is informed by hope. It is about innovating to solve problems and asking what finance can do to help make the world a better place.” Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.
