SAP’s co-founder Hasso Plattner about the economy, the environment, and more

SAP’s co-founder Hasso Plattner, now chairman of the supervisory board, recently had an interview with Der Spiegel, the well-known German news magazine.

It’s well worth reading, either in the original German version or in the English translation.

The last paragraphs, about lessons learned from the financial crisis, reminded me of finishing reading Jared Diamond‘s book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, one of the most interesting books I ever read. Good book for reminding you to not always follow the mainstream (whatever kind or on which side it is) and to ask yourself from time to time which news are currently not discussed in the media (without falling into the conspiracy theories’ trap). Toyota’s Five Whys may be a guideline.
