What does great American corporate leadership look like? Last week it was on full display by Apple’s Tim Cook, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon.
They are three capitalists who made gutsy calls that were not politically expedient in terms of their politics or their industry’s biases.
Cook gave Apple users a more private, secure operating system and a Web site where they can see data that others have collected on them.
Providing these tools goes against the grain of many in Silicon Valley. And even though Apple charges a rather hefty price for its phones, its openness should be commended. There’s a reason Facebook and Twitter are free.
