Ralph Gomory and the Ketchum Goals

Ralph Gomory wants to change a fundamental problem in the United States. What is this fundamental problem? Corporate interests and the national interests are divergent. In Country and Company: Part I - Divergent Goals, Gomory calls these much needed changes the Ketchum Goals:

  1. We want companies that are productive, each contributing as much as possible to the total of goods and services produced in the United States. It is the sum of these efforts that make America a prosperous nation.
  2. We want these companies to provide productive and well-paying jobs so that the value the companies create is widely shared by Americans. It is this widely shared wealth that gives the nation and its people economic security and stability.
