entrepreneurial activity. First, identify and find the right solutions. Second,
contribute all the resources required to solve the problem. This approach is
different from the first one; that is, to provide resources and then see how
they are used.
• Modern society is supported in the wellbeing of others and thus the best
investment is to fight poverty.
• Many of the social problems are more effectively taken care of when the
foundations have the support of the companies’ infrastructure.
• Businessmen are temporary managers of wealth. Their function is to manage
it efficiently, create jobs and pay taxes; all of them have an impact on the
economy of its society.
• Use the expertise and entrepreneurial talent to solve society’s problems. We
are used to make important decisions, generate new ideas, solve problems
and take risks.
• Charity helps and attenuates poverty, but does not solve it.
“Poverty is fought with health,
education and, above all, employment
and more employment”.
