self-sufficiency vs innovation

01May07

“Not everything we do well is worth doing. And even the things worth doing now are not necessarily worth doing tomorrow. Self-sufficiency is the road to poverty. Innovation and trade are the road to prosperity.” Russell Roberts

And this links to the “Mavericks at work” book, briefly explaining the need to go further up towards the top of Maslow’s pyramid of needs. It’s fascinating, isn’t it? I keep being fascinated by these concepts, maybe because they just make so much sense.
