August Turak has been an executive at MTV and the A&E cable networks.  He’s also been CEO of two Raleigh-based tech companies.  He has some thoughts on how to move our economy out of its current slump using something called “conscious capitalism.”  It incorporates what he calls service and selflessness and is a concept he learned from Trappist Monks. August Turak joins us to share his thoughts on bringing values and principles back to business.

  1. I believe Mr. Turak’s monks were the ones run out of the egg business by PETA. How ironic given the latest crisis and recall of one-half billion eggs. If I didn’t raise my own I’d much rather eat the Monk’s eggs than concentration camp eggs from Iowa.

    • Comment to Bill … sure sounds like someone laid an egg 🙂

  2. “concentration camp eggs from Iowa”

    Great way to describe the disgusting practice of factory farming.

    Agriculture must be re-localized/re-regionalized immediately before the economy gets any worse, if only for the sake of local and regional food security (aside from its many health benefits). Doing so will also help to promote local and regional jobs, as many people will be needed to intensively produce good, healthy, and fresh local eggs, meat, produce, etc instead of just a few hundred assembly line workers. It will also save huge energy costs – instead of transporting millions of eggs from Iowa to the rest of the USA, we ought to raise some of them ourselves. Same with meat, vegetables, fruit, etc.
