    European and Asian are not as concerned with maximizing short-term profit at all costs as American corporations. They do look more at long-term consequences.

    Also, they have traditions of respecting scientific and engineering achievement that the U.S. lacks.  Here it's all about how much money you make.

      I wish you were right. But no, it's the same sh!t really. In this day and age, if you have a completely unscrupulous and pretty much criminal mindset, chances are you'll be the subject of a hagiographic portrait in some business mag within the next five years. If there is a difference in European CEOs being a little more open to sustainability arguments, I suspect religion is again at the root of that difference.
