To run a company,
to compete in the Market,
there is nothing like economy.

The economical path returns early to the Way:
thus, it is doubly virtuous.
With this virtue, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished:
none can foresee your limitations.
If none can foresee your limitations,
you might well start a company;
if you grasp the creative foundations of the company,
you and your company might well make it.

Being deep-rooted and firmly based:
this is the Way of long life and persistent vision.


chapter notes:

Aside from retargeting the political to the corporate, this is a fairly straightforward chapter.
