Replying to LO11703 --

Joe Katzman asks " How does one attract and retain such people (knowledge

In related musings, I have come to beleive that people want "meaning" in
their work life. They want to feel they make a difference as they do
something worhtwhile. People work very hard (regardless of rules about
