'A World in Trouble: Capitalists Call For Market Revolutions' blog post by John Elkington.
The world must be in real trouble if even capitalists are beginning to call for “market revolutions.”
Peter Bakker, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, calls for a “revolution of capitalism.” What he means is that markets must learn how to value and manage multiple forms of capital, including the human, social and natural forms. Like-minded leaders include Sir Richard Branson (founder of the Virgin Group), Paul Polman (CEO of Unilever) and Jochen Zeitz (former CEO of German sportswear brand PUMA).

The United States is expected to cede its place as the world's largest economy to China, as early as 2016. India’s GDP is also expected to pass that of the United States over the long term. Combined, the two Asian giants will soon surpass the collective economy of the G7 nations. Fast-ageing economic heavyweights, such as Japan and the euro area, will gradually lose ground on the global GDP table to countries with a younger population, like Indonesia and Brazil (see chart).
