Good as far as it goes, but system needs to be viewed as part of the 
largest whole that has an impact or upon which the considered local 
system can have an impact. That's where the triple bottom line comes 
in. It's not just the good of the business itself, but of the 
business in context of its social system (customers, regulators, 
suppliers) and the even wide system of the environment from which we 
all sustain life, including business. And a more advanced view is 
that each of these have equal status because of this interdependence. 
If business starts with itself at the centre, even that can cause 
problems for that business. This is a broader view of system to one 
of an ecological system than just looking at the immediate members.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
