Here is a compelling, straight-talk about countries that care for the well-being of other countries instead of focusing only on their own people. It presents persuasive arguments about why this is relevant in times of globalization, and it is a reminder of the importance of empathy.

“I had enough hearing about competitive countries, I have enough hearing about prosperous, wealthy, fast-growing countries.
