IN THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS of humankind, we are blessed to be enjoying the greatest way ever to spawn wealth and happiness: entrepreneurial capitalism. Given our feckless government, perhaps it's the only way right now. But it's not a constant - to keep this system healthy, we must continually nurture it. At the moment, too many Americans doubt whether capitalism delivers what they need, in part because too many companies have stopped listening to America.
That's where the Just 100 comes in. Last year, we debuted the first-ever ranking of companies based on whether they achieve. what Americans expect from them. This year, we've taken the next step: a unified ranking of 877 of the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies, the best of which, regardless of industry, earn the Just 100 label.
