In fact, she felt that if the ideaswere used by a simple majority of companies, there would be a national surge in productivity rivaling thePC, Internet, and Quality Process combined.At the end of the week, Wendy drove away from the ranch refreshed and energized with new ideas to helpher become a Richer Shareowner.

As their financial security, dreams and peace of mind became victims of the crisis in corporateresponsibility, friends of investment banker, Wendy Stevens, sought her help in understanding what washappening and who to trust. Try as she might, she was at a loss to find a believable cause or solution tothe crisis. In frustration she telephoned her friend, retired financial officer, Sam McAllen. Over dinner inChicago's suburbs, Sam shared insights into the real cause of the continuing corporate crisis. He helpedWendy identify the vested interests that were abusing Shareowners' money, and he helped her torecognize why the populist ideas of "greedy people doing bad things" weren't the real cause of the crisis.Sam then suggested the grand deception at the heart of the corporate crisis Wendy was astonished It wasso obvious. Over breakfast the next morning, they explored a national solution to the corporate crisis aswell as a "quick fix" that Wendy's friends could personally use until the national solution was implemented.When they parted, Wendy knew she had answers that would help her friends regain their confidence instocks and perhaps some of their lost financial security.
