Emerging Questions on Liberality and Social Thought

Michael Strong

MICHAEL STRONG is currently developing special development regions based on common law in developing nations in order to attract investment and create jobs and broad-based prosperity. For ten years he led FLOW, a non-profit devoted to the creation of entrepreneurial solutions to world problems. Under Michael's leadership, FLOW spun off four "offspring" organizations: Conscious Capitalism, Peace through Commerce, Accelerating Women Entrepreneurs, and Radical Social Entrepreneurs (which Michael now leads). He is the lead author of Be the Solution: How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the World's Problems, co-authored with John Mackey, Mohammad Yunus, Hernando de Soto, Don Beck, and others. He is also the author of The Habit of Thought: From Socratic Seminars to Socratic Practice, and the founder of innovative Socratic, Montessori, and Paideia schools and programs in Alaska, Florida, California, Texas, and New Mexico. Moreno Valley High School, the charter school for which Michael was the founding principal, was ranked the 36th best public high school in the U.S. on the Washington Post's 2006 Challenge Index.(REV. 2013)
