Capitalism has created massive gains in prosperity and yet also led to such inequality that a majority of millennials don’t believe it’s the best way to organize our economy. Yet some companies embrace a more "conscious" capitalism, with a purpose beyond profit and a balancing of the needs of all stakeholders rather than prioritizing stockholders...and they end up more successful in the long run! Join the EVOLution of Business podcast to learn from business leaders at the forefront of Conscious Capitalism, creating more inclusive prosperity for society while also leading to more success for their companies as well. Our current version of capitalism is broken. It’s time For The EVOLution of Business. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Podcasts! Or subscribe by email here: http://eepurl.com/dfZ945
