“The most depraved type of human being is the man without a purpose.”Ayn Rand

What if you created a product or service that changed the world for the better?  Many who create and serve become extremely wealthy.

How many libraries and organs did Andrew Carnegie give away?

Ted Turner, media innovator, is the second largest land owner in the United States.  His desire for a better environment means that the buffalo have lands to roam.

In order for individuals to be generous, they must have surplus.  Let’s explore the morality of profit.
