ABSTRACT
In this article the author reflects on the responsibility of leaders to develop other people and contribute to their growth. He argues that the recession is not a product of tough economic conditions but that the present generation itself created the mess. He states the reasons for such failure including unmitigated greed, proliferation of master of business administration (MBA) degrees, and reluctance to own responsibility for failure. He laments the absence of a sense of shame, service, honor and sacrifice among the leading executives in the U.S.
