Taking Effective Measures: Changing the Heart

"How do we change the hearts of the rich people to give up part of their income and profits? How to convert the profit making in the big financial institutions into taking social responsibility for those who have no access to their institutions?  These are ethical and technical questions. It is only by putting pressure and by obliging the rich through regulation, taxes, curbing profit margins to contribute more to help the poor.  Exhortation and sermons do not help very much, unless it is followed up by taking effective measures through political decisions."
