Being Good For Business' Sake

In links on April 23, 2008 at 9:10 pm

My good friend Andrew posted an article from Paul Graham titled Be Good. The article hints at the idea of running a business like a charity in order to make money. He cites the example of Craigslist which has been very successful by providing folks something they want but with a not-for-profit business strategy.

Andrew asked the following questions:

  • Does this principle match up with Scripture?
  • If so, why is it still sometimes hard to determine what is right?
  • Also if so, why aren’t Christians the most decisive and least confused people you ever meet? After all, don’t we have the ultimate Moral Compass?
  • Is it wrong, as believers, to think like this?

I’m going to think over these for a few days and post something here later on this but if you’d like to join in the discussion, head over and answer some of these good questions.
