Bloomberg is just being more and more impressive. After his Citibike initiative, and attempted ban on big gulps, he’s now tackling recycling. He is just one of the more forward-looking mayors out there. See also his bold plans for preventing the next Sandy. He is a good example of how someone can apply their forward-looking skills in both business (taking out Reuters by focusing on the holistic needs of the trader, as mentioned in Blue Ocean Strategy) and government/urban planning.
I really hope that: a) whoever takes over shows us much foresight (unlikely, I know) and b) that Bloomberg continues his work on the global scale, through more initiatives like his city league for climate change.
