David Jones, founder of One Young World and advisor to Havas, a global communications group, joined HuffPost Live Wednesday to talk about the positive effect business can have on the world.

"I have a fundamental belief that business actually can be a force for good," he said. "That actually, if you want to do well in the future you have to do good. And you'll no longer be able to do well without doing good."

But according to Jones, businesses and governments alike have fallen short when it comes to tackling what he sees as one of the world's biggest problems: growing income inequality. "The world needs inclusive, sustainable growth," he said.
