The organizers of the Fortune Brainstorm conference asked each of us attending to answer four questions. These responses were compiled and distributed in a folder for all of us to scour.
What is the most pressing problem to solve?
Global adoption of sustainable living practices.
Your biggest fear?
The enduring conflict between reason and faith.
Three global leaders who will set next decade's course?
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - Both individually and as a proxy for the Arab world
Larry Page - Not a kneejerk hat tip to my fearless leader. I sincerely believe that Larry (and Sergey) have the stuff to change the world yet again.
Jin Renqing - Finance minister of China - emblematic of massive economic power of China and Asia generally, and in short term, disruptive potential of floating currency.
Your most cherished value?
