Job Creation vs. Meaningful Work Creation

Our current systems are structured on this basic principle:

Design systems around the goal of maximizing competitive achievements (profits, grades etc.)  —> Competitive achievements are the key to personal fulfillment.

This led to job creation for the majority. Well done!

The question is what happens if we reverse this logic:

Design systems around the goal of maximizing personal (employee, student etc.) fulfillment —> Personal fulfillment is the key to creating wealth beyond dollars and cents.

Can this lead to an inclusive economy that creates opportunities for wealth (in all its wonderful forms) and meaningful work for ALL? Are the majority of business owners, parents, educators etc. ready to embrace this reversed logic?
