The bestselling book, now with a new preface by the authors
At once a bold defense and reimagining of capitalism and a blueprint for a new system for doing business, Conscious Capitalism is for anyone hoping to build a more cooperative, humane, and positive future.
Whole Foods Market cofounder John Mackey and professor and Conscious Capitalism, Inc. cofounder Raj Sisodia argue that both business and capitalism are inherently good, and they use some of today’s best-known and most successful companies to illustrate their point. From Southwest Airlines, UPS, and Tata to Costco, Panera, Google, the Container Store, and Amazon, today’s organizations are creating value for all stakeholdersincluding customers, employees, suppliers, investors, society, and the environment.
Read this book and you’ll better understand how four specific tenetshigher purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership, and conscious culture and managementcan help build strong businesses, move capitalism closer to its highest potential, and foster a more positive environment for all of us.
This is the first time time the fundamental issue and severe corruption pure capitalism creates is juxtaposed against the few that are the exception. The animal instincts and animal sprits that greed/fear of loss bring about are so tightly part of the “The America Dream” and base we fail to realize business has evolved but not human compassion and equanimity… We are a creating a culture of ruthlessness and a gilded age and ensuing class war, isolation and suffering to those with less. And we are sliding fast in terms of education, health care and job satisfaction in a trade off for money and quick gains
