    Cute, entertaining and informative. The new corporate entity, social enterprise, paves the way for "better" rather than "more". Two problems with this video -- it explains how our economy is built on more, but doesn't examine how our economy will be affected if we focus on better (presumably many small businesses will go under and major corps will lay off workers if people are buying less. There goes the dream of many an entrepreneur who relies on capitalism to achieve their goal...) And the video doesn't address the possibility that large corporations can become better themselves, and be part of the solution.
