what would Kant probably have said about Whitey Basson (or you) earning ZAR 620,000,000.00?
Based on what I understand about Kant’s theory, he would accept basson’s earnings because his act is acceptable as maxim. He have excellent achievements as business leader and job creator and have continued support of and investment in the development of human potential in the disadvantaged sectors of society. He realised that to achieve his goals, acquisition and turnarounds of struggling companies must be a priority, invested his own time and intelligence into growing an R1million investment into 30 billion business. Sticking with his future for years and working really hard in making his future a reality .He turned the company into one of the most successful ventures of today.
What would I probably have said about Whitey Basson (or you) earning ZAR 620,000,000.00?
