"A person with a social conscience can run an enterprise with as much dedication and drive as a greedy person - he is just running it to achieve social goals not to fill his pockets," he said.
"And if you put the greedy person against the socially committed person in competition, the greedy guy will fall because he has to make more money to make a profit, where the other guy just has to cover costs."
So what was his ideal world?
"There will always be some poor because everyone has ups and downs, but everyone will be keen to help because poverty will be a novelty."
