Changing the world one person at a time.
Meet Milt Moses; he invests in people.
Chicago: In 1962 Milton Moses thought about going into television, but there were few places for African Americans. Instead, he joined Community Insurance Center and was made President in 1968.

This film tends to group all business together yet concludes that the big business and its corollary, capitalism, are bad. It has made major inroads into the ideational fabric of the USA. We've got to be very careful that they do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Perhaps an antithesis to this film is this 1964 speech by Ronald Reagan.
Certainly there is no arguing that some big corporations have at times been bullies, a few have compromised human health for the bottom line, and many have acted selfishly for the good of a small minority at the top.
