Made in Germany - A different kind of boss

Made in Germany - A different kind of boss

(5:42) Ernst Prost, boss at Liqui-Moly has promised that, if times got tough, he would sell his castle before laying off his employees. Liqui-Moly produces car-care products like lube, oils and additives, and has a turnover of more than 230 million euros a year. Prost has also taken out ads saying that the current economic crisis was sparked by power, greed and fear, and that those aren't qualities businesspeople should aspire to.

I like his business model, and I admire his ethical stance. Still, this little video has the feel of a 1940's newsreel... all it need is the music.

On the other hand, he loses sight of the triumph of capitalism: the basic truth that the common man admires wealth and aspires to be rich by having wealthy people to try and emulate. What happens when the rich live like the scum? Productivity ceases to exist and the recession continues until eternity ends.

Latest comment: On the other hand, he has not lost sight of the triumph of community and society: the basic truth that Capitalism, where people aspire to be rich and wealthy is ultimately flawed if it were to reach it's conclusion where one person has everything and everyone else has **** all ~ and no-one would have any money to buy his paint and oil products.....

In the UK if he even so much as looked at one of his female employees - never mind putting a friendly hand on their shoulder - he would be in front of an employment tribunal and paying out £££££ !

In the US, for it to be sexual harassment, it has to be unwanted and repeated. Did she show any signs that the touch was uncomfortable for her? If she did, she should have said something. If he does it again after being notified that it was unwanted, then she would have a case.
