Actually, I was pretty glad at the moment they told me I could come back the next day to work for them. Much better than they reject me after I did the 7 hour volunteer.

Edun clothing competes with other high-end brands, and if their competitors start losing market share to Edun they could take notice and follow a similar business model. That would be a success (beyond just Edun).

Bono is a great singer, but in politics and business he's a complete idiot!

I disagree completely.

You might want to research his successes in both arenas before making a blanket statement like that. Elevation Partners is the name of the private equity firm he is a partner in. Private equity, a dominion of the rich, has been really hot the past few years.

For a complete idiot its incredible how he created DATA, ONE and Product (RED) to help Africa get on their feet and save people from horrid diseases.

Yes, he sounds like a complete idiot.

Elevation, from my understanding, he's just a small part, an investor.

Well for the most part I think Bono is just a figurehead, especially with RED, and played little to no part in actually executing the idea. And I really don't think DATA has done anything of measurable value.

Let's have a look at what business model really is, before posting:

I'm not picking on you by far; but I think that if you really read up on these organizations you would find that is not the case. Bono isn't just a figure head...he is very involved as much as he can be without leaving the band.

Maybe this will help you understand better:

So let's look at his main business: U2. Is he a complete idiot with the business side of U2?

I know it's quite a lot of reading, but scan through previous posts you might be able to take a notice that the question in your original point has already been discussed.

I do think Bono have contributed some very interesting idea to business and political world.

But only based on your point, U2 as a corporate, the business decision has to be made by the band's manager, not the band. I guess in U2's case, it might need the band to nod to get it actived and passed down, though. Let's don't forget U2 has four members.
