Putting Practical Idealism into Practice (4/14/09)

John Hammock, Past President, Oxfam America; Professor of Ethics, Tufts University; Co-author, Practical Idealists: Changing the World and Getting Paid

"Practical idealism" is a great phrase, but how is it actually put into practice? Successful practical idealists know that individual choices matter, and that personal and social change is interconnected. Hammock tells us how to apply the lessons that he and other practical idealists have learned as they put their ideals to work at the center of their personal and professional lives.

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on April 14, 2009.
