Time to Consider New Models for Capitalism

It is time to consider new models for capitalism that are emerging around the world—specifically, conscious capitalism, moral capitalism, and inclusive capitalism, says Jean-Pierre Lehmann
Jan E. Boethius's insight:

"Capitalism has guided the world economy to unprecedented prosperity. Yet it has also proved dysfunctional.... It often encourages short-sightedness, contributes to wide disparities between the rich and the poor, and tolerates the reckless treatment of environmental capital. If these costs cannot be controlled, support for capitalism may disappear—and with it humanity's best hope for economic growth and prosperity. It is therefore time to consider new models for capitalism that are emerging around the world—specifically, conscious capitalism, moral capitalism, and inclusive capitalism. Jean-Pierre Lehmann"  Emeritus professor of International political economy at IMD, Visiting Professor at the University of Hong Kong and NIIT University in India

Hyperactive, yet passive

Hyperactive, yet passive | Conscious Leadership | Scoop.it
Worries about corporate myopia miss the point. Even in America, business is not dynamic enough
Jan E. Boethius's insight:

Rather than trying to stipulate the horizon over which investors and firms should think, governments should:


- remove the barriers to the creation of small firms. Some 22% of small firms complain that red tape is their biggest problem; many have trouble getting credit. Nearly 30% of American occupations now require licences—tourist guides in Nevada need 733 days of training, for example.  


-  promote competion and be vigilant about oligopolies.


Both issues loom even larger in Europe.

Bill Gates (pictured) - who lives in Washington, US - has joined Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking in warning that AI poses a threat to humanity, and says we should be 'concerned'.

Artificial Intelligence holds a lot of potential and is becoming the next big thing. At the same time people who understand what AI potentially can lead to like Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, SpaceX and Tesla Motors chairman Elon Musk and astrophysicist Stephen Hawkins are expressing their serious concerns.

How to Leave a Mark

How to Leave a Mark | Conscious Leadership | Scoop.it
Impact investing is perhaps the most promising new development tool. Young people just getting started and older business gurus alike should consider it.
Jan E. Boethius's insight:

Impact investing is offering a way for investors to make a difference in the world and help build a better future. Profit is part of it. A possible outcome and a proof of successful impact but not the goal.

About Arrogance, Success and Humility

About Arrogance, Success and Humility | Conscious Leadership | Scoop.it
Jan E. Boethius's insight:

Nobody is born arrogant. The challenge of success however, is that it often generates arrogance, a feeling of being better.

Conscious leaders knows about this flip side of success and the challenge it possesses. They know that the only way to truly inspire their subordinates is through genuine respect and recognition which in turn requires a humility.
