Compassionate Capitalist Coffee Break – Type 2 CrowdFunding – 506c

Eight Myths Americans Need to Unlearn About America

I’m someone who wants better lives for Americans - but is also quite critical, sometimes unsparingly so, of America. If we are to ever suggest Americans should be doing better, then we must be critical of America too, and examine why it hasn’t flourished and developed. Either these strange and foolish myths can be true, or America can be where it is - but you can’t have both. America does have a high rate of charitable giving - but that is because contributions are tax deductible, and the ultra-rich use them as a way to shield themselves from taxes. Virtue is a thing which results in the public good - and yet America has no public goods, from healthcare to retirement to childcare to elderly care. 

America doesn’t make the best stuff - it doesn’t make stuff anymore at all, really. In America, these things are mostly left to billionaires to fund, and so Americans have Tesla and weird startups that let people buy teenagers’ blood - but Europeans have cleaner energy grids and advanced public healthcare. America is full of people trying to do the right thing!! Maybe it is. If your bar for collapse is Mad Max meets the Strain sure, America hasn’t collapsed yetto that point. 

Just go away!! We don’t need to listen to people who are critical of America! They’ll never help us!! Listen. There are not many people in America who observe it in that way, which is the way that I do - because not many have a lens that isn’t just made of the same old American myths. 

Mostly, American commentary is made by people who’ve only ever lived, studied, worked, played in America.

Why capitalism is like a broken down car

Professor Muhammad Yunus was at his provocative best here at the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos. In a special one to one debate with Rana Foroohar from Time magazine, he claimed that the current capitalist system simply had to be replaced altogether. He likened the current capitalist system to an old car. When you have an old car, he said, it starts to break down and you have to repair it. This starts to happen more and more frequently until it is only logical to replace the old car with a brand new model. 

Logic dictates, he maintained, that as the current capitalist system keeps breaking down it must be replaced with a completely new economic system. There was a glint is his eye when he said this because he knew that he caught everyone’s attention but he went on describe what a new economic system might look like. Yunus was full of ideas about what a sustainable economic system might look like in a world where poverty no longer existed. There has been a great deal of discussion in Davos this year about how to change the current economic model. As the engine of the current economic system seems to be straining and spluttering with high unemployment, so the idea of having a completely new car to deal with the challenges of today seems quite appealing.

Compassionate Capitalism With David Meltzer

You’re one of those people that every time I’m with I feel like I’m at home. Part of the reason people are so curious about other people’s pivots is that the word pivot has a connotation of something went wrong and something went bust. One of the most famous pivots that I sometimes share with people that people don’t know is that YouTube was originally a video dating site. Sometimes we didn’t have food, but the only time there was any awareness of unhappiness in my home was when I’d catch my mom crying because the car broke down or the dishwasher didn’t work or she couldn’t afford me to go to a camp and she was worried about how she was going to pay for college with all these bright children. I’m going to be rich because when I graduate law school from Tulane and I studied really hard, top of my class, I had two job offers. 

That’s my first prayer every day, that God put ten people in front of me I can help. Most people go the whole day and they don’t get the car back to center where you can just have one finger on it. For a lot of people, it’s really important what you’re talking about, something that’s pragmatic in the spiritual realm. We’re getting into some fun things here with people who visit. Most people are not making time for themselves and for their own self-care. 

I’m going to ask you the final question, David. You can get there by going to PivotFB.com, a really simple shortcut to get to that spot.

Living Life As A Compassionate Capitalist | Americas Greatest Motivators Keynote

Investment >Innovation>Jobs = Compassionate Capitalism

I renamed my podcast radio show the Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show after the Great Recession in an attempt to plant the seed that all the money needed to grow our economy and create jobs was sitting on the sidelines. So when you take the passion of an entrepreneur and mash it up with the capitalist desires of an investor – you get Compassionate Capitalism. Unlike pure capitalism, compassionate capitalism isn’t just about making money, it is about making money with the purpose of bringing innovation to the market and creating jobs, leading to the wealth triggered when that business continues to a successful exit. Here’s the thing—In America, Compassionate Capitalism has been going on for a long time. Since Angel Investing was first coined as a description of those that invest in private endeavors, with the goal for the company to grow big, go public, and reap the returns on that investment, it has been the game the rich play to get richer. 

Even when there was the dot.com collapse of the market….the angel investors had already made their big return on their money before the stocks collapsed on the stock market. Even with bombs like SnapChat IPO – the Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists make big multiples on their money, as the stock collapsed and those investors that got in on it when it first went public, lost a bunch. Without getting into all the rules covering this new era, lets just say — Anyone can get richer by investing in the entrepreneurial dream…. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur if you can invest in one. Angel Investors that people hear about making a lot of money from investing in Google, Facebook, Uber, or whatever is hot today, didn’t do it alone, and rarely just got lucky on making that great investment as their only investment. 

The problem is that 90% of the people that could qualify to be an angel investor are either too busy with running their own company or in their executive position to commit the time the traditional angel groups require or they are geographically located not near an established angel group. A way to get the primer for angel investing and jump-start getting started identifying and vetting deals to find the ones that are right for your capacity to invest and your risk tolerance. It is my, the author’s, investment in YOU the future Compassionate Capitalist.

Beyond Kinder, Gentler Capitalism

The vast majority of the population is responsible for the creation of that wealth through work. The problem is one of distribution: resources are concentrated in the hands of a few economic elites, instead of being shared among the workers whose labor created it. CEOs at major US firms make over three hundred times what the typical worker does. Meanwhile American workers’ pay stagnates, the cost of living skyrockets, and the dwindling social safety net functions less as the guaranteed foundation of a good life than as a public subsidy for capitalists who refuse to pay their workers a living wage. You’ve got one guy, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, his wealth is increasing every single day by $250 million, but he pays many of his workers wages that are so low than many of them are on food stamps or on Medicaid. 

It’s what capitalism trends toward, even when we try our best to contain it. To survive, workers are compelled to compete with other workers to sell their labor on the open market, prompting a race to the bottom. In order for their enterprises to stay afloat and to keep from becoming workers themselves, bosses are forced to compete with other bosses to maximize profit, which requires them to squeeze as much labor from workers for as little cost as possible, while also pressuring the state to deregulate industry, cut taxes, and so on. The wealth bosses were accruing during that period still made them much more powerful than workers. Saving capitalism is a heavy lift, and an end to inequality and class conflict under capitalism is structurally impossible. 

If we’re going to invest in an ambitious political project, we’re better off setting our sights on a horizon beyond capitalism and on a new economic order, one that’s oriented around public well-being instead of private profits. At its core, it involves recognizing that the resources for a beautiful and fair world already exist – thanks to the labor of workers – and that those resources should be spent enriching the lives of the many instead of the elite few.

Infosys salary row: Narayana Murthy’s single-minded focus on compassionate capitalism is commendable

It’s easy to look at Narayana Murthy’s open letter on executive compensation as the first salvo of the second round between the Infosys veteran and current management led by Vishal Sikka. Murthy addressed the letter to select Alpha journalists who never miss an opportunity and made his instructions clear. It’s easier still to be deliberately mischievous and see Murthy’s sharp words singling out Chief Operating Officer Pravin Rao as an expression of discomfort of the changing internal dynamics at Infosys. Rao was Murthy’s protégé, and probably still is; a fact Murthy explicitly brings out. At the risk of paraphrasing Murthy’s core thoughts, the veteran’s letter is more about the specific nature and character of capitalism that India needs to nurture for future generations, rather than about boardroom wars. 

In the Indian corporate landscape, Murthy is a rare titan whose rootedness to values of equity and fairness is monkish. Yes Murthy still considers India a poor country, and quite rightly so considering that close to 60 percent of the country still lives on less than Rs 140 a day. Murthy’s parting shot in the letter is as telling about the current nature of capitalism in India, as it is about what the nature of capitalism in the country needs to be. In such a scenario, it might seem that Murthy is being too idealistic and possibly quite out of sync with the rest of the world. Murthy’s advocacy of compassionate capitalism has strong roots in the Nordic and Scandinavian models of corporate capitalism that not only engages intensively with a social welfare state, but also puts self-restraining caps on executive salaries. 

Murthy is pointing to a model of capitalism that’s fundamentally different from the one that’s increasingly practiced in India. Instead of looking at Murthy’s letter only from the prism of Infosys and its changing dynamics, it would do all of us a world of good if we start looking at it as the first step to debating the contours of a new model of equitable capitalism for an emerging India.

Compassionate Capitalist – Entrepreneurs Need to Understand their Real Competition

Compassionate Capitalism: Resolving the Ethics of Business and Medicine

US physicians are becoming more entrepreneurial to cope with the seismic shifts happening since the passage of legislation creating Obamacare. Physician entrepreneurs are challenged by how to reconcile the ethos of business with the ethos of medicine. Many physicians have been entrepreneurs for decades and have played various roles in the innovation pipeline as inventors, market perceivers, social entrepreneurs, educational entrepreneurs, business leaders or investors. Now there is a convergence of forces that is forcing physicians to be even more entrepreneurial and innovative to not just serve their patients better, but to survive an increasingly turbulent landscape. Physicians need to embrace an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset, lead , manage operations to achieve maximal effectiveness and efficiency and use digital health technologies to leverage their value and create new business models. 

The challenge to most physicians is to how to do that while balancing the conflicts between how business is done and how medicine is practiced. A new series of books by Laurie Bassi, et al, titled, Good Company: Business Success in the Worthiness Era, John Mackey and Raj Sisordia, titled, Conscious Capitalism, Seth Godin, titled, The Icarus Deception, and Richard Branson, titled, Screw Business As Usual, are all making the claim that it is those companies and those entrepreneurs who do good for the world who will win the game of capitalism. Physicians are uniquely positioned, and are starting to be trained, to take advantage of this trend as they are constantly improving the state of the art in their fields and now gaining MBA’s, graduate level certificates in one or more areas of biomedicine, and are reaching out to the investment community to fund the research and development, the intellectual property designations they need, the team for their companies, the strategic alliances they will need for their supply chain, and their distribution chain, as well as the marketing necessary to launch a successful biomedicine product or service. The physicians will also have a new look and demeanor, with their iPADs in hand, talking to early stage investors and venture capitalists about funding their idea from the start through to international patents and business arrangements that will change the medical landscape around the world. The medical consumer, the patient, will benefit greatly from this expansion of entrepreneurism through physicians practicing compassionate capitalism. 

This is all possible not just because physicians today want to become entrepreneurs. It is now inevitable that innovation will grow by leaps and bounds and it will be driven by physicians and other entrepreneurs putting their ideas to the ultimate test, the market test.

Capitalism, Free Enterprise has done more to elevate people’s standard of living than any other economic system. Because we are very fervent about that, people sometimes think we are nuts. Frankly that’s OK. Because being normal today means that you have a job which you have no control over. To be normal means husband and wife working 1 or 2 jobs. 

Honestly I am not interested in being normal, infact I kinda like being wierd or nuts, being in charge of my own future, take responsibility myself and not wait for a government handout or stimulus.

Are you a Compassionate​ & Conscious Capitalist?

KARL R. LAPAN, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NIIC. If you’re in business for the sole purpose of making money, you’re are ignoring other important stakeholders vital to a healthy business and positive bottom line. If your motivation is to help people first and foremost while making a living at the same time, you’re onto something. I believe capitalism and intentional altruism can and do intersect. 

It might also turn out that they might also be more successful financially. Buffet and Collins often remind us that saying no distinguishes super-successful people from successful people. Going above and beyond: Compassionate capitalists tend to live their life as servant leaders and are always willing to go the extra mile. People who practice this habit stand out, which in turn helps them to attract the right people, the right projects, and achieve higher personal job satisfaction. If you can incorporate even one of these principles into your life and business, I imagine you’d find great satisfaction in deeper relationships and also potentially a more robust bottom line. 

This behavior has the power to inspire others, creating a chain reaction that can only add to our society as a whole. Intentionally choose to be both a conscious and compassionate capitalist leader in your business.

‘Compassionate capitalism’ urged for India

Narayan Murthy: One of the world’s most admired business leaders. Debate is currently raging throughout India over the economic policy of the new government, following a lukewarm media response and stock market jitters. Mr Murthy told BBC World Service’s The Interview programme that more had to be done to drive entrepreneurial activity. Mr Murthy is one of the world’s most admired business leaders, who gives much of his company’s wealth to charity. A growth rate of 7%-8% a year has been targeted by India’s Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram. 

Mr Murthy said the only way to do this was to encourage a new set of entrepreneurs. He warned this would not happen if the approach was too hard-nosed. Mr Murthy pays himself less than $50,000 a year, and said his company stresses ethical use of profits, 96% of which come from business outside of India. He recalled that when India had bordered the old Soviet Union it had been very difficult to establish his company in 1981. Infosys develops software systems for a number of global giants. 

Mr Murthy said that when he set up the company, it took seven days of approval to travel outside India, and he waited a year to obtain a telephone for his office. Most importantly, they allowed foreign companies 100% equity in hi-tech companies in India.

Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business eBook: Blaine Bartlett, David Meltzer: Amazon.ca: Kindle Store

Product Description Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. The net of this is that business, as a prevalent and important force, has a moral responsibility to guide, enhance, value, and nourish the existence of all that it encounters. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. From our perspective, business is nothing less than a spiritual discipline, it requires the same integrity, commitment, intentionality, courage, discipline, and compassion as any other spiritual discipline. 

It’s the honoring of this value-the ennobling of this value-that is called forth when we approach business as a spiritual undertaking. About the Author Blaine Bartlett is a thought leader, author, professor, and keynote speaker. Over a career spanning almost four decades he has had the opportunity to impact nearly a million individuals and has observed firsthand what business has done as well as recognizing what it is capable of providing. Blaine works internationally and regularly speaks to businesses, universities and global conferences on the future of business and leadership. Through his work and life he embodies the position that the future of business is making the future its business. 

David Meltzer is currently the CEO at Sports 1 Marketing, a global marketing agency he co-founded with Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon. As a Forbes Top Ten Keynote speaker and best-selling author Dave combines situational knowledge from his career and life journey and speaks internationally to Fortune 500 companies and top business conferences, prestigious universities, and sports seminars.

How to achieve a more compassionate capitalism: look back to medieval Cambridge

Legal advances created a lively property market; cutting-edge technologies improved water management and bridge-building; commodity trade expanded; and towns grew dramatically, both in number and size. Its focus was on local infrastructure and local wellbeing. City churches were financed by local people to meet the needs of local people. Their legacy remains with us today: the most valuable real estate in a modern city is often occupied by medieval churches and hospitals. Using recently discovered documents and novel statistical techniques, we have analysed the histories of over one thousand properties in medieval Cambridge over this period. 

Using evidence from the so-called ‘Second Domesday’ – the Hundred Rolls of 1279 – we show how wealth accumulated by successful businesses was recycled back into the community through support for local churches and hospitals and for itinerant preachers based in the town. Town government was devolved by the king and queen to the mayor and bailiffs, and they encouraged the development of guilds, which promoted cooperation. The business centre of Cambridge shifted south as the town expanded. ‘New wealth’ replaced ‘old wealth’ as a local commercial class replaced Norman aristocrats. Local pride and religious devotion – expressed through high levels of charitable giving – helped spread the economic benefits throughout the town community. This self-sustaining system was broken in the 1340s by the Black Death, the outbreak of the Hundred Years War and the punitive levels of taxation imposed on towns thereafter. 

When prosperity returned in the Tudor period, a more ruthless form of capitalism took root, and it is this ruthless form of capitalism whose legacy remains with us today.

He has helped create Sound World Solutions to market a new high-quality hearing device developed by his partner, Stavros Basseas. My competitive juices get flowing when I start to think about a big, $4 billion medical device company and how I’m going to beat them. The device, which we reported on yesterday, will be sold in the U.S. But the main market will be in developing countries, where it will sell for a couple hundred dollars – a fraction of the cost of high-end hearing aids. Green says his strategy is to minimize the cost of technology, production and distribution so he can push prices to the lowest possible level and force other companies to compete. 

The most notable may be a company named Aurolab in India that manufactures intraocular lenses. Through Aurolab, Green helped drive down the price of the lenses from several hundred dollars apiece to $2 now. Green has also set up eye-care programs in countries from Nepal to Kenya, created less expensive testing for people with diabetes, and helped set up social investing funds.

Can capitalism be compassionate?

For an individual a concept like Kurtosis would have no meaning. Private ownership allows for exchange between individuals. An objection may be that we are dealing only with numbers, but if those numbers were actually pointing to individuals, and referred to each individuals’ height, then the Quicksort process could still not be compassionate, kind, or just. If I, as an individual, were to choose my own method to sort those individuals’ heights, then I could choose a method that is compassionate or that is not. There is no method, or rules of conduct, that the sickly individual could observe which would at the same time allow him or her to secure food without making it more scarce for others. 

We can consider how individuals seek other individuals to partner with and marry. Most would not object to allowing individuals to choose their own partner, but we would be likely to object if one partner forced another partner to be with them. They were simply pursuing their own individual interests. Many thousands of years ago, the individuals of the human species in their technological infancy could only look at those outside of their immediate family, or perhaps tribe, as competitors for the scarce resources nature chanced to provide. It is only when one human conceives that he or she, or his or her immediate family or tribe, could be better off by exchanging with another individual from an altogether different family or tribe, that compassion can begin to develop between humans outside of immediate families or tribes, because they no longer need to view each other as competitors for scare resources, they’ve developed a new abstract relationship- a relationship of exchange for mutual benefit. 

Individuals who engage in a great deal of trade with one another tend to have strong relationships, and to share similar interests. Those individuals who do not engage in trade with one another have no such mutual interests.

The Pursuit of Equal Income Distribution

During the last decades, the great weaknesses of capitalism have flourished. Inequality of income distribution has worsened painfully, the gap between rich and poor widens more and more every day, and just a few lucky entrepreneurs in the world are able to enjoy the capital benefits of the global system. Hunger, poverty, demographic explosion, ageing, and unbridled mass migration, among other factors, have become critical social dilemmas directly related to capitalist deviations, all of which cause us to foresee a chaotic world scenario in the near future. The numbers shown in this article confirm that the world’s economic disparity, instead of diminishing, is increasing at an alarming rate. Since the world economy completely depends on capitalism, this system is still extremely powerful and influential in global decision-making, thus further aggravating economic disparity. 

As it is not possible to avoid the capitalist system, we will make proposals that are feasible for implementing within the current capitalist tendencies in order to alleviate global imbalance. Compassionate Capitalism is an alternative that promotes flexibilization of the system in order to make it more sustainable. It seeks to diminish corporate control over the economy and markets by regaining the State’s economic intervention so that profits are fairly redistributed for the common welfare. The information used for the study is based on the most recent international reports and global circumstances of the topics in question. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

The Case For Compassionate Capitalism

The closer we looked at capitalism, the more we found it wanting. To save capitalism from itself, FDR introduced what turned out to be the crucial missing ingredient: compassion. The damage done to the country during the Depression convinced him that unregulated capitalism always favors the rich at the expense of everyone else. So to save capitalism from itself, FDR introduced what turned out to be the crucial missing ingredient: compassion. He knew instinctively that fairness – essential to any functioning democracy – was an alien concept to pure capitalism. 

Compassionate capitalism worked for everyone without busting the federal budget. Under Roosevelt’s compassionate capitalism – even with a Great Depression and a Second World War – the federal budget quickly came right back into balance. By the time Eisenhower was elected, compassionate capitalism was tightly woven into the fabric of American democracy. America’s social safety net was never viewed as the cause of eye-popping deficits until a radical group of political nihilists decided that the best way to kill the compassion in capitalism was to stubbornly refuse to pay for it. The reason compassionate capitalism is still hugely popular – Tea Party extremists notwithstanding – is because it works. 

America’s social safety net was never viewed as the cause of eye-popping deficits until a radical group of political nihilists, led by people like Grover Norquist, decided that the best way to kill the compassion in capitalism was to stubbornly refuse to pay for it – and then blame the resulting deficits on the lie that compassion itself is just too damn expensive. History has repeatedly demonstrated that compassionate capitalism leads to balanced budgets, a robust economy, and a piece of the opportunity pie for every citizen seated at America’s table.

Kony 2012: clueless compassionate capitalism

Equally, the Invisible Children organisation, credited with the YouTube video entitled ‘Kony 2012’ cannot be taken lightly. Invisible Children claim the money raised would be used for positive construction work and projects in Northern Uganda, where Kony’s rebels operate, despite having raised US$8.6 million and used only 32 percent of that money for services in Northern Uganda in 2011. As their record has shown, money is the central nerve in the Kony 2012 project, a project that brings to bear some of the murky operations among charity organisations that wail for the downtrodden as they wipe their crocodile tears with the millions of dollars ostensibly raised to help Africans. As glossy and superficial as it is, with respect to the real problems in Uganda, the Kony 2012 film has caught the attention of millions. After having sent heavy contingents to root out al-Shabab, accepting an American military presence in Uganda to deal with the Kony affair does not augur well for Museveni, especially as a lot of Ugandans view the al-Shabab threat as a clear and present danger following the World Cup bombings in 2010 in Kampala, the capital. 

In the meantime, a coterie of Hollywood stars have joined the fray and are calling on all and sundry to make Kony 2012 famous in order to make Kony, the man, more infamous. Whilst such an oversimplification of the Kony dilemma and, for that matter, the Ugandan canker has helped the Invisible Children group to pander to sentiments and raise a lot of money, rooting out the Kony quagmire remains a Ugandan political affair. ICC’s decision to indict Kony and not the Ugandan army smacks of a lack of objectivity or fairness. In neighbouring, recently, independent South Sudan, where Kony and his men also hover, petrol and land have ignited massive international interest. So while the Invisible Children group’s call, for American intervention and all out support to the Museveni regime- by demonising a rather weakened Kony and LRA, may come as a diversionary relief for the everlasting government, it is far from being the biggest concern for Ugandans. 

The regional political dynamics cannot be separated from any international decision to root out Kony. Big salaries for them and little help to the millions of Kony’s victims in need of justice and respite.

Compassionate capitalism – The Denver Post

Political theorist Benjamin R. Barber should have considered hiring CNN’s Lou Dobbs as his publicist. Barber shares Dobbs’ zealousness for a return to a more gentle and compassionate capitalism, one that remains committed to mainstream values such as work and investment saving and learning to defer our own gratification for future generations. Advertisers spent less than $100 million trying to attract youths in 1990, and by 2000 had increased their advertising budget for teenagers to more than $2 billion. American kids alone spend more than $169 million a year and marketers see vast opportunities in India and China where a larger percentage of the population is under 20. 

Barber points out that educational and government institutions, which once served as a balancing forces to rampant consumerism, have simply joined the fray, leasing their classrooms and cafeterias and football stadiums to the highest bidders without regard for quality or integrity of product. Barber is not just some modern-day Benjamin Franklin lecturing us on impulse control. This accomplished author is worried that the annihilation of the town square for the suburban mall, coupled with the invasion of technologies like cellphones and video games, have replaced civilized public discourse and the responsibilities that accompany good citizenship. We remain infantilized and powerless over the more important decisions in our lives. He is an advocate for change by boycott, government pressure and encouraging corporations to embrace more wholesome business practices that look beyond profit. 

He remains insistent on staying on his message, and often seems to miss big chunks of the larger picture that may seem obvious to many readers. In more than 300 pages, he never once considers the dramatic effect of the women’s movement and the role it may have played in spurring reckless consumerism. Elaine Margolin is a freelance book reviewer and essayist in Hewlett, N.Y..

A Meltdown Met With Compassion – Kyle Herron

A few days ago, I dropped my autistic son off for therapy. He was in the midst of a minor meltdown the continued outside the car(meltdowns are not uncommon in the world of autism) and it was enough to draw attention. A gentleman standing by his vehicle glanced in my direction. As I returned to my car, the glancing gentleman approached me, gave me his business card and began crying. His gesture was the kind of compassion the moment called for.

I Am….Consciousness

I AM the believer limited by my beliefs, the knower defined by the known. The world is my conditioned consciousness objectified. That which I feel and believe to be true of myself is now projected in space as my world. The world, my mirrored self, ever bears witness of the state of consciousness in which I live. There is no chance or accident responsible for the things that happen to me or the environment in which I find myself. 

Nor is predestined fate the author of my fortunes or misfortunes. Innocence and guilt are mere words with no meaning to the law of consciousness, except as they reflect the state of consciousness itself. The consciousness of guilt calls forth condemnation. Man everlastingly objectifies the state of consciousness in which he abides but he has somehow or other become confused in the interpretation of the law of cause and effect. He has forgotten that it is the inner state which is the cause of the outer manifestation!

Post-Postmodernism: or, The Cultural Logic of Just-in-Time Capitalism

Post-Postmodernism surveys a wide variety of cultural texts in pursuing its analyses-everything from the classic rock of Black Sabbath to the post-Marxism of Antonio Negri, from considerations of the corporate university to the fare at the cineplex, from reading experimental literature to gambling in Las Vegas, from Badiou to the undergraduate classroom. Insofar as cultural realms of all kinds have increasingly been overcoded by the languages and practices of economics, Nealon aims to construct a genealogy of the American present, and to build a vocabulary for understanding the relations between economic production and cultural production today-when American-style capitalism, despite its recent battering, seems nowhere near the point of obsolescence. Post-postmodern capitalism is seldom late but always just in time. It requires an updated conceptual vocabulary for diagnosing and responding to our changed situation.

Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution

Doomsday may be a century or two away, but the quality of life up to that point will have deteriorated at an increasing pace. Pursuing four central strategies of natural capitalism, these authors say, will enable commercial enterprises and communities to operate as if all forms of capital were important. The core strategy is that of radically increasing resource productivity by being more efficient, less wasteful in how natural resources are extracted and used. America doesn’t need the next industrial revolution. America needs a new and better capitalism that enfolds industry without its corpocracy.

They are profoundly anti-capitalist, with critical looks at culture, politics, life, work, and radical ways of living one’s life. It was initially associated with the North American anarcho-punk scene, but since has expanded into nearly all areas of the current global resistance to empire.
