Germany is right
This article is from The Guardian.
Why is the German economy so strong and resistant to recession?
Perhaps it is due in part at least to the medium sized enterprises which thrive so well in that country. This sector is called Mittelstand.
Some of the things that resonate with me from reading this article are the importance of ethical behaviour in business and the collaborative approach in dealing with employees, suppliers and customers.
Some of the benefits I see are happiness at work driven by ongoing training and development, better productivity, recognition of the value of R&D, and a long term outlook.
The approach of the Mittelstand contrasts with the "get-rich-quick" approach of companies elsewhere which sometimes up and leave after the prospects of big profits fade away. According to the article, in Germany, while there is no right to profit, the right to work is essential.
