Interview with John Allison, President and CEO of The Cato Institute and former CEO of BB&T

At the top of the second hour of today’s show I’ll have the pleasure of interviewing John Allison, who is currently President and CEO of The Cato Institute, and formerly was the CEO of BB&T, the 10th largest financial institution in the United States. We’ll be discussing his book, The Leadership Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why the Future of Business Depends on the Return to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, in which Allison presents the principles necessary to achieve success and happiness—principles applicable to individuals, organizations and society as a whole.

During the first hour I’ll be discussing some news more generally, most likely focusing on the current hostage situations in France, one of which involves the jihadists who massacred 12 journalists and cartoonists working for Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine that dared to mock Islam and Mohammad.

What’s Your Vision For 2015? Tonight at 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET)

In re-reading parts of John Allison’s book in preparation for next week’s interview, I started thinking about the issue of vision, imagining a future that is attractive and compelling, and the difficulties inherent in doing that while living in an irrational society, under attack by a government that is inimical to your values. And nonetheless we need a vision and we do have a vision, even if we don’t make it explicit to ourselves. What will yours be this year?

We’ll discuss some of the news of the week, as usual, in addition to asking this question.
