LISTEN: Martin Melaver: Business Has a Responsibility to Society
Posted By dpacheco On August 11, 2009 @ 9:01 pm In Socially Responsible Business | No Comments
 Martin Melaver is an ethical businessman with a few simple goals: to live his life and manage his third-generation family business according to a set of core values; to serve his community, which means developing existing structures—what’s known as in-fill—rather than creating all new structures on virgin land; and to share these beliefs and values with the business community so that other businesses can follow in the Melavers’ footsteps.
In this podcast from  WritersCast, Martin talks about his ethical business philosophy, his family business’s journey from corner grocery to real estate developer, and his book,  Living Above the Store: Building a Business That Creates Value, Inspires Change, and Restores Land and Community.
