Establishing a Thriving Entrepreneurial Spirit in Government
Appendix 3: Entrepreneurship in the Saudi public sector
Gold has always been a standard metaphor, and as a metaphor, can come in many forms and colors. We have, ‘good as gold’. We have, ‘more precious than gold’. ‘A heart of gold’, ‘a golden touch’, ‘the golden age’, ‘the golden rules’, all ten of them. Metaphors are valuable because they allow us to see beyond the surface, or to see how everything is connected in one way or another to our experience as human beings.
