I certainly like Mr. Pistorio's attitude in approaching the topic of sustainability -the statement "The world has developed high imbalances," ...citing public debt, population explosions in developing nations ...rising number of environmental issues... -certainly hits some key points. It is scary to think that the resources consumed in N. America (not to mention the garbage created) far exceeds those of China & India combined! According to some estimates, the wealthiest 20 percent of the world's population for consuming 80 percent of the goods and services produced from the earth's resources. Though this number is dated, recent numbers still outweigh those of the less affluent populations. MP Divakar

Thanks for the comments everyone. Pistorio is a pretty inspiring person. His track record as a CEO speaks for itself, but you can't help but admire his social consciousness and charity work. His Pistorio Foundation now supports 1,660 underprivileged kids. As he put it, that may seem like a relatively small number when you think about all the needy children in the world, but to those 1,660 the foundation's support makes a huge difference.

Great article, Dylan. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Pistorio many years ago at an European executive event sponsored by Cadence. He was as humble and graceful as he today. Refreshing!

Dylan, great observation about the 1st-person, 3rd-person thing. I know exactly what you mean - er, that is, we do.
