Our take: In a short blog entry, National Review domestic-policy blogger Reihan Salam cites some intriguing points written by Harvard Business professor http://www.claytonchristensen.com/" target="_blank">Clayton Christensen.
Last year, Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School published a short essay on how Mormon ideas and sensibilities might have shaped Mitt Romneys economic thinking. I found this passage particularly interesting:
On the one side, we believe that the Lord told us, For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things. Men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will; for the power is in them. He that doeth not anything until he is commanded, the same is damned. (Doctrine and Covenants, 58:26 29; which I have condensed). And on the other side, several times every year, we raise our hands in conference to signify that we will sustain and follow our leaders. We are an innovative but obedient people.
