According to Wikipedia, Juan Enriquez is a Latino academic, businessman, author and speaker. He is a Harvard graduate who joined a multi-stage world sailing discovery voyage led by J. Craig Venter, who sequenced the human genome. In other words, he’s a bad-ass genius. Enriquez, who has published several books on Genomics and societal issues, recently delivered a Ted Talk on the difference between countries that succeed and countries that fail, and in his view it all comes down to values and how they treat people. If I tried to paraphrase the speech, I would not do it justice, so here is a link to it. Let’s help it go viral. Please take ten minutes to watch it, it will open your eyes. My thanks to Jerry Ascencio for sharing it with me.
