According to Ken Meyer, the neural structure of the mind and the body as a whole is a structure created by the pull of the DNA from birth and continues to operate under the "pull" of nature via electro-magnetic forces. Besides our own bodies, there is evidence throughout nature and the universe -- like gravity and the pull of the sun as experienced by all the planets. Why not structure an organization in a pull structure - pulled by service purposes throughout the organization? - he says. This would be the ultimate sustainable organization structure. The typical command and control structure with hierarchy is what he calls a push structure and is why it is not very sustainable. Ken says that by thinking in terms of pull and by measuring pull, you can create pull structures for any organization. This is why following a disaster, people say: "We all pulled together" When people work together, they pull together. That is also why you do not here the phrase: "We all pushed together"

There is a solution! I cannot recommend this book highly enough. And author Miguel Reynolds Brandao is already taking it another step, implementing the concepts in his book with Nadia Morais: Look up MarketFinancedInventions.com for a peek of what is coming--and this is only the beginning.
This is not just a book; it's a MOVEMENT!
I love the way they connected background information and various approaches to statistics to provide a better picture of what is happening in countries and the difference in income levels. Also, the answer to "does money bring happiness" and "why did it become a trend for the biggest millionairs to give away the majority of their fortune" have been approached brilliantly.
In some ways is is very insightful but I fear it may be too complex for many people to both understand and implement.
I hope these comments are helpful.
All the best,
