Dr. Thomas Sowell

Writing with sincerity; although my passions do not lie in economics, for more years than my aging should confess, I have admired the contemplative intelligence, personal history, and inspiration of Thomas Sowell. I own his books. I have read his books; and then, read them again (recommended starts: 'The Thomas Sowell Reader' and 'A Personal Odyssey').

My profound respect for him is beyond expression. What a gift to mankind he is.

He embodies an egalitarian self-determination to which we should aspire.

Dr. Thomas Sowell

>    Concerned with solutions; not blame

>    Leads others; no interest in controling others

>    Will NOT micro-manage or surveille - the team must be trusted

>    No hesitation to speak opinion with complete sincerity

>    Judges personal success by success of employees and team members

>    Egalitarian work environment More...
