We are honored that John Mackey, our co-ambassador to FreedomFest (along with Steve Forbes), has been identified in the latest Fortune magazine as one of the 50 Greatest Leaders in the World. These are not just business leaders, but leaders in government, philanthropy, sports and the arts. John was selected for creating two revolutions — the new food movement and his new brand of “conscious capitalism.”
Other admired leaders include: in business, Tim Cook (Apple), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Elon Musk (Tesla)… in sports, Yao Ming (China) and LeBron James… in government, John Roberts, Mitch Daniels, Narendra Modi and Xi Jinping (not Obama or Putin!)… in religion, Pope Francis… and in entertainment, Taylor Swift(!).
Last year, we gave John Mackey the Leonard E. Read Book Award for his fine work, “Conscious Capitalism.” It is required reading in my “Libertarian CEOs” class.
We are honored to have John Mackey at this year’s FreedomFest, and he will be there all three days, speaking on advances in healthcare… a debate with billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel on “Monopoly vs. Competition”… and another debate on “Spirituality vs. Materialism.” John will also be one of the judges in the $50,000 American Dream Award. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet John Mackey in person at FreedomFest (along with Peter Thiel and Harris Rosen). Sign up here or call toll-free: 1-855-850-3733.
In case you missed it, I encourage you to read my e-letter column from last week about whether we’re headed for another 1937-style recession.
