Give It

In his Sunday column for the New York Times, Frank Rich says it's time to put aside the pursuit of money and do something good. Eventually, he gets around to chatting with Howard Gardner:

One skeptic is Howard Gardner, the Harvard education professor who has created seminars at several elite colleges to counsel students in the notion of pursuing meaningful, ethical and effective work — “Good Work,” as he has titled it. He believes that many students may still be operating on the assumption that the world of finance will just pick up where it left off in a few years. “But we’re not going to be back there,” Gardner told me last week, “and we shouldn’t be back there.”

Also, unemployment reached its highest level in 25 years.
