Compassionate Capitalism-Part 3

Conscious Capitalism

Mindfulness in business, work, investment, and leadership-what’s up with all that? I can remember not that long ago when the mention of mindfulness practices in the boardroom or workplace was met with blank stares; now it’s all over the place. It amazes me how quickly it’s moved beyond the fad stage into the realm of best practices. Last week I watched Arianna Huffington talking about mindfulness and business on CNBC’s Squawk Box, featuring moving first person accounts by Aetna CEO John Bertolini and Harvard Business School’s Bill George. That was followed by a HuffPost Live broadcast about mindfulness and work that included our friend and mindful.org contributor Janice Marturano, head of the Institute for Mindful Leadership. Business and work are central to our lives, so I’m very pleased about this development. Our friend Jeff Klein, a leader in this area, tells us that you will be able to learn from CEOs who are actually doing it about how conscious businesses focus on their purpose beyond profit and include the aspirations of all the stakeholders, including employees, customers and the surrounding community. Also in the Bay Area on April 30, Stanford’s CCARE will be hosting a one-day conference on Compassion and Business, presenting research and best practices by leading experts and business leaders who have successfully implemented compassion-based programs in their organizations. It will include three of our favorite leaders in the mindfulness and business world: Chade-Meng Tan of Google and SIYLI, Scott Kriens of Jupiter Networks and the 1440 Foundation, and Chip Conley who developed the Joie de Vivre hospitality chain. Four investors who consistently beat the market over more than 25 years discuss their philosophy and strategies for investing and giving. As part of the discussion, our friend Jeff Walker will lead the panel in a discussion of their own unique strategies for personal development and how these strategies help them to live a more complete and fulfilled life.

Why Is There Poverty? – Allan G. Johnson

More than one out of every six people in the United States lives in poverty or near-poverty. With a majority of the people competing over what’s left to them by the elite, it’s inevitable that a substantial number of people are going to wind up on the short end and living in poverty or with the fear of it much of the time. In part poverty exists because the economic system is organized in ways that encourage the accumulation of wealth at one end and creates conditions of scarcity that make poverty inevitable at the other. If we’re interested in doing something about poverty itself – if we want a society largely free of impoverished citizens – then we’ll have to do something about both the system people participate in and how they participate in it. Learning to run faster may keep you or me out of poverty, but it won’t get rid of poverty itself. People can argue about whether chronic widespread poverty is morally acceptable or what an acceptable level of inequality might look like. If we want to understand where poverty comes from, what makes it such a stubborn feature of social life, we have to begin with the simple sociological fact that patterns of inequality result as much from how social systems are organized as they do from how individuals participate in them. The result is that some people rise out of poverty by improving their competitive advantage, while others sink into it when their advantages no longer work and they get laid off or their company relocates to another country or gets swallowed up in a merger that boosts the stock price for shareholders and earns the CEO a salary that in 2005 averaged more than 262 times the average worker’s pay. The system itself including the huge gap between the wealthy and everyone else and the steady proportion of people living in poverty, stays much the same. Welfare payments, food stamps, housing subsidies, and Medicaid all soften poverty’s impact, but they do little about the steady supply of people living in poverty.

Alienation 2.0: Commodification of the Soul In Late-Stage Capitalism

Some work is subsistence – in fact, for the larger part of history work was mostly related to survival. Sometimes work is meaning – sure, humans can survive without Van Gogh’s Starry Night or the poetic rhythm of Omar Khayyam but wouldn’t it be almost inhuman to say such art was not worth the effort? Some work expresses human values or ideals – tidying up the kitchen helps roommates show respect for one another and volunteering to cook hot meals for the homeless at a local mosque is one way to fight poverty. Although wage labor is a lot like subsisting in many ways, wage-earners do not possess the materials, tools, or space needed for their labor while subsisting workers can access the natural resources they need to make a living. Wage labor is different from other labor because workers neither control the activity of labor itself nor the goods or services they produce. If labor improves a worker’s life or if it gives him a sense of worth and meaning, the worker is the author of his labor and working expresses the worker’s self. The worker treats her work as an object instead of a process under her control – she is alienated from her own actions. Labor moves outward as an expression of self-development and alienation reverses it – alienated labor invades the worker as an activity developing from the outside in. “Labor appears as loss of reality for workers; objectification as loss of the object and object-bondage; appropriation as estrangement, as alienation.”- Karl Marx. The core concept of Marxian alienation is that workers experience a part of themselves as something alien to them and that sounds a lot like dissociation, which psychologists described as experiences of detachment from part of a person’s reality. In a wage system, the worker is immediately alienated by the act of production because all that is produced is automatically another person’s property, disconnecting workers from work itself and its results.

Capitalism Doesn’t Cause the Wealth Gap

If I were to ask you what do you think is the primary reason for this gap or this – well, we’ll call it a gap between the wealthy and the middle class that seems to be getting wider, why do you think the wealth of this country is not fairly distributed? And by that I don’t mean why isn’t government fair with distribution. BREAK TRANSCRIPT. RUSH: Now, there are a lot of reasons for the wealth gap, and I’d rather refer to it as “The distribution of wealth,” because that does happen. You simply cannot have a fair and equitable distribution of wealth handled by a central command-and-control authority or government, because they first have to take the wealth, and once they take it, you don’t have it. The gap between the rich and poor – however you want to describe this – the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few, the 1%. That gap has grown, and the reason is that wealthy have gotten wealthier. The amount of welfare In other words, the amount of money that a government pays people not to work is also going to contribute to the wealth gap. You might ask, “Well, how can that be, Rush? I mean, if you’re giving people?” Well, in the first place, the money we’re giving them isn’t counted as income, so the wealth gap doesn’t have that number tabulated. There’s nothing in capitalism that says, “Print a bunch of money and buy stocks or equity with it.” That’s something that big-government socialists and autocrats do when they have the power and authority over the money supply. My point to you here is the socialists, the big-government types, use this gap between the rich and the poor and the concentration of wealth growing in the 1%, and they’re gonna blame capitalism for it. It was something that really ticked me off about some liberal explanation for the wealth gap and why the rich keep getting richer, and it was all because of capitalism. CALLER: The division between the rich and the poor is that the poor have their wealth in cash, and the rich have their wealth in things.

Compassionate Capitalism-Part 4

We Have Killed Capitalism-Jim Sinclair

Because I think it is the most important interview of the year on USAWatchdog.com. Legendary gold and market expert Jim Sinclair says, “Markets do not exist anymore … and you can’t time what does not exist.” Sinclair contends a huge transition is underway, and the old system cannot be fixed. A new one is on the way, and the old one is going to end with a bang. Sinclair explains, “Right now, they’re eating each other, and the eventuality is, getting back to the steam pot, there is going to be a day when there is only going to be one shark left, one very fat shark left, and what happens next? That shark starves to death because it ate all the food. So, the end of this is the explosion of that steam cooker which is called capitalism.” In closing, Sinclair says, “When it’s all said and done, there will be a catastrophic big bang, and then the only thing that will be left is your savings account. Your savings account is not silver, although it will outperform gold, your savings account is going to be gold. It’s going to happen because all currencies, even the roaring dollar, are falling in terms of being a storehouse of value. Capitalism is finished. I can’t tell you what the next system will be, but capitalism is over because the heart of capitalism is markets. Without markets, you cannot have a capitalistic system-it’s over.” Join Greg Hunter for one of the most compelling and enlightening interviews of the year with renowned market and gold expert Jim Sinclair of JSMineset.com. Sinclair went on to say, “The financial system is going to blow no matter what. We’re headed into a new system. I don’t know what it is, but I am happy I am 75 years old.” There is free analysis and information on JSMineset.com.

May says capitalism cuts poverty after Corbyn speech

Theresa May will today set out a staunch defence of capitalism and free marketWill say an open market has helped raise living standards of everyone in BritainIn Bank of England speech, she’ll warn against sharp increase in public spendingBy James Tapsfield, Political Editor For Mailonline. In a speech to the Bank of England, the Prime Minister insisted the modern capitalist economy had driven the biggest reduction in poverty in human history. ‘We’ve got to make that case all over again, because there is a generation who have grown up in a different environment and perhaps haven’t seen the problems that can occur when you don’t believe in free markets and sound management of the economy. Mrs May’s speech saw her return to the Bank of England where she began her professional life as a researcher in the economic intelligence unit in 1977.The speech is taking place to mark the 20th anniversary of Gordon Brown’s decision to grant independence to the Bank of England – stripping away the Chancellor’s power to set interest rates. In her speech the Prime Minister stressed the value and potential of an open, innovative, free market economy which operates within the right regulatory framework. ‘A free market economy, operating under the right rules and regulations, is the greatest agent of collective human progress ever created,’ she said. MAY ADMITS TORIES MUST MAKE CASE FOR FREE MARKETS AGAIN Theresa May today admitted that the Tories have not done enough to make the case for free markets over recent years. ‘So much work was done to get that message across, of the importance of free markets, of sound management of the economy, of global trade. We’ve got to make that case all over again, because there is a generation who have grown up in a different environment and perhaps haven’t seen the problems that can occur when you don’t believe in free markets and sound management of the economy. In a pointed jibe at Mr Corbyn, Mrs May said issues with capitalism must not be used as ‘justification for the total rejection of the free market economy which has done so much to improve our lives’.

Pseudo-Compassion and the State >> Nevada Policy Research Institute

Genuine, effective compassion is beyond the capability of government. That’s because the nature of government, in both spirit and fact, is deeply antagonistic to both authentic morality and genuine compassion. The distinguishing characteristic of government, as any beginning political science major once was able to tell you, is its legal monopoly on the use of force. In consequence of this-and because of Americans’ own experience at the receiving end of British government force-early on in the history of this nation its founders agreed that our government’s powers were to be strictly limited: The state’s legal monopoly on the use of force would only be deployed against people who’d already set themselves outside the social compact by using force or fraud to attack others and violate their rights. Because government is, at root, only an instrument of coercion, the only relevant distinction it is really equipped to handle, ultimately, is whether or not people obey. Such highly nuanced evaluations and prescriptions are necessarily beyond the lumbering, rule-bound nature of government bureaucracies. Such agencies will always remain “Lumbering”-i.e., constrained and encumbered by laws and regulations-because they expend not their own resources but resources that the government has coerced from the public and remains easily embarrassed about-especially when scandals involving the coerced loot start attracting public attention. At bottom, government “Compassion” programs are essentially political artifacts, designed to provide pseudo-compassion. These programs offer a cheap sop to conscience for inattentive but “Concerned” voters, while building special-interest constituencies for big-government politicians and government union ideologues. Campaigns for government transfers to the “Disadvantaged” also allow those supporting the campaigns to wax indignant, feel morally superior and temporarily achieve heightened self-esteem-while avoiding the challenges of confronting these human problems on a personal level.

Phil Angelides: Enforcement of Wall St. is “Woefully Broken”

You know, one piece of information that we released were documents from Clayton Holdings, who performed due diligence for two dozen banks, who were buying mortgages from the Countrywides, the Ameriquests, the New Centurys, packaging those loans up and selling them to investors. What they show is in each of these banks they were buying loans, Clayton Holdings was finding that a substantial portion of the loans, I think overall from January of 2006 to March of 2007, that 28 percent of the loans did not meet the standards of the lender or of the bank buying those loans. These banks would hire Clayton to look at the loans they were buying. At the very core of this is that a lot of the focus for the last few years has been on individual transactions, individual cases where it’s been identified that institution X sold bad loans to institution Y. And if you talk to someone like Lisa Madigan, the attorney general of Illinois, she points out there’s a much bigger fraud going on here, which is the whole mortgage origination machinery of the 2000s were companies pushing fraudulent no-doc, low-doc loans into the marketplace, making those loans so they could make their fees and then passing those bad loans up through the system. I’ve always felt – take particularly the Clayton instance – that what we laid out was a roadmap, again, in black and white, stark numbers, clear evidence that banks knew of defects, and notwithstanding that, passed on millions of loans to investors. As far as what you could see, it was intentional behavior on the part of the banks to pass these loans on? You have people inside of Wells Fargo, a woman named Darcy Parmer, , who’s quoted in a report saying that on a routine basis that evidence of fraudulent loans [is] ignored by the banks. You have Angelo Mozilo in 2004 and 2005 warning that the option ARMs – you know, these are these loans where people can pay less than principal so the amount of principal accelerates – warning that these loans could bring financial and reputational catastrophe to the company. You had people who were making lots of money, being paid big fees, and not just people who were originating loans, packaging loans, selling loans – along the way, everyone’s making a fee. Whether you’re a mortgage broker, whether you’re a lender, whether you’re a bank securitizing loans, you’re making a fee.

“Conscious Capitalism” Is Not an Oxymoron

There is a growing network of people – including the leaders of companies such as the Container Store, Starbucks, Trader Joe’s, Patagonia and Whole Foods Market – building their companies based on the idea that business is about more than making a profit. One of the most predictable responses we get from people when we mention the idea of conscious capitalism is, “That’s an oxymoron!”. We define it as being mindful and awake, seeing reality as it is rather than as we wish it to be, recognizing and being accountable for all the consequences of our actions, having a better sense of what is right and what is wrong, rejecting violence as a way to solve problems and being in harmony with nature. The interest in and widespread confusion surrounding these ideas is evident from the fact that the most searched word of 2012 on Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary was “Capitalism,” followed by “Socialism.” Type “Define capitalism” into Google’s search box and one of the first entries is “An economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit.” That is a value-laden definition – especially the words “Controlled” and “For profit.” We think of capitalism in simple and benign terms: it is simply the co-existence of free markets and free people, or economic and political freedom. Consider what has happened in just the past 200 years or so, a time when capitalism really took root as an idea in many societies. Adjusting for quality and affordability, it is estimated that the average American is 100 times better off today than 200 years ago. We therefore hold these truths to be self-evident: business is good because it creates value, it is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange, it is noble because it can elevate our existence and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Free enterprise capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived. “Conscious Capitalism” is a way of thinking about capitalism and business that better reflects where we are in the human journey, the state of our world today, and the innate potential of business to make a positive impact on the world.

Is capitalism better than socialism?

Although capitalism involves creation of some sort of inequality it always provides a potential for a healthy competition, and a free market, unlike socialism which restricts any private ownership, forget any competition amongst the industrials who mostly contribute to healthy competition and development of the nation. It has been constantly proved throughout the course of the history that though socialism has been attractive to many because of the many subsidies and freebies provided, capitalism has thrived better throughout. Dheqwiufwqgc79rwguehr4hyrhrhrhr ehrehehe hrehrehrhehre hrehrehreh re gb f f f f f f f f f f f f f u u u u u u u u c c c c c c k k k k k k k k k m m m m e e e e. Capitalism is selfless, while Socialism is Selfish. You know how parents teach kids to say thank you when you get a gift or ice cream? In socialism, they would reply with “What am I entitled to” as a response, showing the immaturity and irresponsibility of Socialism, not to mention the fact that they basically put human naturebin slavery by picking out what they think is the best thing for and forcing you to like it. To correct some idiocy out there, socialism does not fail because some “Pure” notion of it was not adhered to. In almost every case the free market wins the former, while socialism conforms to the latter. Capitalism allows people to strive towards higher goals, whereas socialism allows people to be lazy. Capitalism causes people to go out and work hard for a living, whereas people who believe in socialism feel as though the world owes them something, and are willing to accept benefits for doing nothing. If socialist countries can offer to help the poor rise into poverty, then why is it that countries with centrally planned economies and subsidized health care have weak, low growth economies and higher rates of poverty than the US? It’s because not only does socialism go against human nature and human history, it leads to rationing and long waits for worse goods and services. Socialism doesn’t promise to lift everyone up, it promises a subsistence economy and a stagnant life path, which not only is contrary to the human spirit, but also leads to lesser quality goods and services, including healthcare, medicine, and even education.

Compassionate Capitalism-Part 6 (Question and Answer)

What is Orthodox Marxism and Why it Matters Now More Than Ever Before

Like all other modes and forms of political theory, the very theoretical identity of Orthodox Marxism is itself contestednot just from non-and anti-Marxists who question the very “Real” existence of any kind of Marxism now but, perhaps more tellingly, from within the Marxist tradition itself. I will first say what I regard to be the distinguishing marks of Orthodox Marxism and then outline a short polemical map of contestation over Orthodox Marxism within the Marxist theories now. Parody is always the effect of a slippage and the slippage here is that in spite of the sudden popularity of “Orthodox” Marxism, the actual theories and practices of the newly orthodox are more than ever before flexodox. What is at the core of both the flexodox marxism and the popular culture of class as “Lifestyle” is a de-politicization of the concepts of Orthodox Marxism which neutralizes them as indexes of social inequality and reduces them to merely descriptive categories which take what is for what ought to be. The hollowing out of Marxism in the name of Marxism by such theorists as Smith, Sprinker and Zizek is based on the ideological un-said of the bourgeois right of property and its underpinning logic of the market which are represented as natural (“Inalienable”) “Human rights,” or more commonly, in daily practices, as individual rights. Rosemary Hennessy’s Profit and Pleasure is the most recent and perhaps most popular attack on Orthodox Marxism in the name of Marxism itself. One of the ways such writers hollow out Marxism of its Marxism and produce a Marxism beyond Marxism is by their overt acknowledgement of the way Marxism is treated in the bourgeois culture industry. Under cover of this ideological self-inoculation, Hennessy then goes on to produce her “Tamed” version of Marxism that is only metaphorically “Marxist” because it is void of all the concepts and practices that make Marxism Marxism. Marx’s labor theory of value is an elemental truth of Orthodox Marxism that is rejected by the flexodox left as the central dogmatism of a “Totalitarian” Marxism. The time has come to state it clearly so that even the flexodox opportunists may grasp it: Orthodox Marxism is not a free-floating “Language-game” or “Meta-narrative” for arbitrarily constructing local utopian communities or spectral activist inversions of ideology meant to seduce “Desire” and “Mobilize” subjectivityit is an absolute prerequisite for our emancipation from exploitation and a new society freed from necessity! Orthodox Marxism is the only global theory of social change.

Pew study experts: Artificial intelligence threatens the future of capitalism

A Pew Research Foundation study examining the future of work and job training found a belief among some experts that artificial intelligence and automation threaten not just millions of jobs, but also the future of capitalism. Released Wednesday, the non-scientific study titled “The Future of Jobs and Jobs Training” is the seventh in an eight-part “Future of the Internet” study being conducted by the Pew Research Center and Elon University. “People will create the jobs of the future, not simply train for them, and technology is already central,” said a Microsoft principal researcher. Several respondents questioned the point of training for a job that won’t exist at all in the future. “While the first three themes found among the responses to this canvassing were mostly hopeful about advances in education and training for 21st-century jobs, a large share of responses from top experts reflect a significant degree of pessimism for various reasons. Some even say the future of jobs for humans is so baleful that capitalism may fail as an economic system,” the Pew report reads. Training for jobs of the future A primary question in the survey was “In the next 10 years, do you think we will see the emergence of new educational and training programs that can successfully train large numbers of workers in the skills they will need to perform the jobs of the future?”. About 70 percent of survey participants said they believe education and training programs will successfully prepare people for jobs of the future, but many respondents also believe education will not be sufficient to meet people’s needs within the next decade, as automation and AI are expected to claim more human jobs. A mid-2015 Pew Research survey found that about two-thirds of U.S. citizens believe that within 50 years robots and automation will do the majority of the work done by humans today, though 80 percent of respondents said they expected their job to exist in the same period of time. “Many of them say that current K-12 or K-16 education programs are incapable of making adjustments within the next decade to serve the shifting needs of future jobs markets.” Don’t expect a political solution Whether respondents agreed that workers are being trained for the jobs of the future or not, many expressed concern about the ability to reach these training goals in time to prepare workers for those jobs.

Compassionate Capitalist | Jim Debetta Shares Insights on Inventing & Inventors

Zombie Politics and Casino Capitalism

I mean, it’s hard to imagine life beyond capitalism. HENRY GIROUX: Well, for me democracy is too important to allow it to be undermined in a way in which every vital institution that matters from the political process to the schools to the inequalities that, to the money being put into politics, I mean, all those things that make a democracy viable are in crisis. It’s about a kind of lunacy in which people lose themselves in a sense of power and greed and exceptionalism and nationalism in ways that so undercut the meaning of democracy and the meaning of justice that you have to sit back and ask yourself how could the following take place? How could people who allegedly believe in democracy and the American Congress cut $40 billion from a food stamp program, half of which those food stamps go to children? And you ask yourself how could that happen? I mean, how can you say no to a Medicaid program which is far from radical but at the same time offers poor people health benefits that could save their lives? HENRY GIROUX: That’s right, that the government- the larger social order, the society has no responsibility whatsoever so that- you often hear this, I mean, if there-I mean, if you have an economic crisis caused by the hedge fund crooks, you know and millions of people are put out of work and they’re all lining up for unemployment, what do we hear in the national media? We hear that maybe they don’t know how to fill out unemployment forms, maybe it’s about character. I mean, at one level it spoke to people who have no visions, who exercise a form of political leadership that extends the politics of what I call war and the machineries of death, whether those machineries are at home or abroad, whether they’re about the death of civil liberties or they’re about making up horrendous lies to actually invade a country like Iraq. What it has to do is expanding- what it means to get-a quick return, what it means to take advantage of a kind of casino logic in which the only thing that drives you is to go to that slot machine and somehow get more, just pump the machine, put as much money in as you can into it and walk out a rich man. I mean, to start a party that is not part of this establishment, to reconstruct a sense of where politics can go. In the most general sense, we can say, “Intellectuals are people who take pride in ideas. They work with ideas.” I mean, they believe that ideas matter. BILL MOYERS: If we have zombied politics, if we have as you say, metaphorically, zombies in the high levels of government, zombies in banks and financial centers and zombies in the military, can’t you have a zombie population? I mean, you say the stories that are being told through the commercial corporate entertainment media are all the more powerful because they seem to defy the public’s desire for rigorous accountability, critical interrogation and openness.

According to Quintin Hogg, the chairman of the British Conservative Party in 1959, “Conservatism is not so much a philosophy as an attitude, a constant force, performing a timeless function in the development of a free society, and corresponding to a deep and permanent requirement of human nature itself.” In contrast to the tradition-based definition of conservatism, political theorists such as Corey Robin define conservatism primarily in terms of a general defense of social and economic inequality. Conservatives typically see Richard Hooker as the founding father of conservatism, along with the Marquess of Halifax, David Hume and Edmund Burke. Liberal conservatism is a variant of conservatism that combines conservative values and policies with classical liberal stances. Over time, the general conservative ideology in many countries adopted economic liberal arguments, and the term liberal conservatism was replaced with conservatism. National conservatives can be distinguished from economic conservatives, for whom free market economic policies, deregulation and fiscal conservatism are the main priorities. Some commentators have identified a growing gap between national and economic conservatism: “Most parties of the Right [today] are run by economic conservatives who, in varying degrees, have marginalized social, cultural, and national conservatives.” National conservatism is also related to traditionalist conservatism. The American conservative writer Russell Kirk provided the opinion that conservatism had been brought to the US and interpreted the American revolution as a “Conservative revolution”. Officially DC refused the ideology of Conservatism, but in many aspects, for example family values, it was a typical social conservative party. Major priorities within American conservatism include support for tradition, law-and-order, Christianity, anti-communism, and a defense of “Western civilization from the challenges of modernist culture and totalitarian governments.” Economic conservatives and libertarians favor small government, low taxes, limited regulation, and free enterprise. Kenneth Minogue criticized Pratto’s work, saying “It is characteristic of the conservative temperament to value established identities, to praise habit and to respect prejudice, not because it is irrational, but because such things anchor the darting impulses of human beings in solidities of custom which we do not often begin to value until we are already losing them. Radicalism often generates youth movements, while conservatism is a condition found among the mature, who have discovered what it is in life they most value.”

Intercession- Changing Atmosphere- Wayne C. Anderson

Compassionate Capitalism: How Corporations Can Make Doing Good an Integral Part of Doing Well: Amazon.co.uk: Marc Benioff, Karen Southwick, Alan G. Hassenfeld: 9781564147141: Books

Here is what the Economist has to say:An unusually persuasive advocate of the view that CSR-or “Compassionate capitalism”, as he calls it-benefits shareholders, employees and the needy all at once is Marc Benioff, boss of salesforce.com, a private company that provides online customer-relationship-management services. In a new book, co-written with Karen Southwick, Mr Benioff argues that corporate philanthropy, done right, transforms the culture of the firm concerned*. “Employees seeking greater levels of fulfilment in their own lives will have to look no further than their workplace.” As well as doing the right thing, the firm will attract and retain better people, and they will work more productively. Mr Benioff advocates “The 1% solution”: 1% of salesforce.com’s equity, 1% of its profits and 1% of its employees’ paid hours are devoted to philanthropy, with workers volunteering their time either to company-run schemes or to charitable activities at their own initiative. His book describes similar projects at many other firms, always underlining their win-win character. Unlike some advocates of CSR, Mr Benioff says he opposes government mandates to undertake such activities. Compulsion would neutralise the gains for corporate culture, he points out. In any case, if Mr Benioff is right, and CSR done wisely helps businesses succeed, compulsion should not be needed. Companies like salesforce.com and the others discussed in his book will thrive, and the model will catch on by force of example.

The Karen Rands Interview

As many of you know, I write novels and a few weeks ago I did an email promotion with an author services company to get the word out about my first mystery Uncorking a Murder. You’d think that writing a book is the hardest part of being an author, but that’s actually the fun part. For me, marketing and getting the word out are really the most challenging aspects of being a writer – and this is coming from someone who has worked in marketing professionally for over two decades! Even when you are published through one of the big publishing houses, the weight of marketing for most authors is on our shoulders. Karen Rands is the founder and CEO of Kugarand Capital Holdings. She’s also the author of Inside Secrets to Angel Investing. Karen’s new book is geared towards teaching potential angel investors the ins and outs of growing their wealth through what she calls Compassionate Capitalism. Compassion isn’t something you ever hear alongside capitalism. Karen bridges the divide between the terms by redefining compassion, which she believes is formed from the idea that entrepreneurs have passions for their ideas and build companies around them. In Compassionate Capitalism, we have an environment where money makers enable others to bring innovation to the market and, by doing so, create jobs and wealth for all involved. When investors use their money and talents as compassionate capitalists, it’s Karen’s belief that they will feel an emotional abundance existing alongside the wealth they’ve created.

Compassionate Capitalism, the Workplace, and Social Capital

While compassionate capitalism may seem like a contradictory statement, examples of this practice suggest the power of this model. In this chapter, we review key components of capitalism and compassion. We explore governmental intervention through the Great Depression, the New Deal programs initiated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Milton S. Hershey’s groundbreaking business philosophy that was beneficial to the company and to his employees. We then look at the present-day examples of business models that do not sacrifice the community and environment for profit, provide examples of companies that are implementing these models, discuss the business case for doing this, discuss new regulatory support for the concept of compassionate capitalism, and explore how companies are rated by their employees and the community on their “Giving back” practices.

Compassionate Capitalist Show | Eric Anderson – Entrepreneurs Turning Passion into Profits

What Kind of Capitalism Should India Have?

In the face of growing inequality, we need not just compassionate and creative capitalism, but also one which recognises the ethical core of reciprocity. Though the term ‘compassionate capitalism’ has been a part of public discourse outside India for some years now, the current spotlight on it in India is largely due to N.R. Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys. Describing his philosophy of compassionate capitalism, Murthy said it was capitalism in mind and socialism at heart, a creed which looks at fairness and at ensuring that everyone is better off. According to him, if we have to make capitalism acceptable to a majority of Indians who are poor and to create jobs, “Every senior management person of an Indian corporation has to show self-restraint in his or her compensation and perquisites. He or she has to fight for maintaining a reasonable ratio between the lowest salary and the highest salary in a corporation in a poor country like India. The board has to create a climate of opinion for such a fairness by their actions.” Senior leaders should, he felt, consider taking cuts instead of laying off youngsters and encourage these employees to reskill so that companies can take advantage of new emerging opportunities. In FY16, at least 27 directors earned at least 100 times more than an average employee, whereas under a saner capitalism the ratio between highest compensation in the firm and the median salary should ideally be 50-60. Picketty confirmed that though capitalism is central to the innovation and entrepreneurial risk-taking needed for economic growth, inequality does not naturally or automatically decline under capitalism and that capitalist growth leads to greater inequality because of the higher rate of return on capital compared with the low overall growth rate of the economy, or to put it another way, income from investments rises faster than wages. Several economists like William Easterly, professor of economics at New York University and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, have argued in favour of traditional capitalism because it helps the poor; others believe that insisting on greater equality will distract businesses from their primary goal of making profits. Apart from communism, reform advocacy has ranged from welfare capitalism to Gandhi’s theories of decentralised production by small individual owner producers, along with trusteeship of the wealthy; corporate and individual philanthropy; mandatory corporate social responsibility contributions from companies, to variations of compassionate capitalism such as ‘inclusive capitalism’, the ‘humane capitalism’ of Muhammad Yunus and the ‘creative capitalism’ of Bill Gates. Gates’s creative capitalism would be one “Where governments, businesses and non-profits work together to stretch the reach of market forces so that more people can make a profit or gain recognition doing work that eases the world’s inequities”. Compassionate capitalism must also emphasise conscious reciprocity, a concept which implies that the giver gets as much as the receiver.

compassionate capitalism definition

Compassionate capitalism is the synthesis of the ideals of communism where the correct distribution of wealth was intended but under the principles of work, taking opportunities and fair economic reward. Multilevel business are the ideal vehicle where compassionate capitalism was founded on four principles outlined below and that have changed, change and will change many lives. These principles were exposed by Rich de Vos co-founder of Amway Corporation one of the most important MLM companies and with more transcendence in the concept of conpassionate capitalism and multilevel business. Compassionate capitalism is defined as “The equal access of each person to unlimited economic growth opportunities and that helps other people within the same process to achieve among all personal and group rewards”. Unfortunately in a traditional context of work-employment or business we cannot speak of freedom because the time is mortgaged either for an employer who says what to do, when, how and for how long or for a traditional business in what the owner or propietor must be present to make his business work or function properly. Well, in multilevel business like no other business there is nothing of this and there is hope for the future for young, mature and old, regardless of race, creed, social status or education. To these four factors it joins the fact that in this type of business to construct compassionate capitalism exists the great advantage of choosing counselors who are persons who have big economic results in the same business and who are ready to share their knowledge and experience to be imitated, equalized and often overcomed. In summary compassionate capitalism it is now a reality through its main business multilevel agent and together have changed the economic history of millions of people around the world and will continue in many more lives for those who have a burning desire to change their current economic situation and the will to learn, grow and change. Compassionate capitalism is one of the few economic models who do a real social sustainable development, balanced without clientelism and false promises that are never fulfilled. Get trained with the best recommended resources to succeed in compassionate capitalism within the multilevel business.

Nonfiction Book Review: Compassionate Capitalism by Rich DeVos, Author, Richard M. Devos, Author Dutton Books $22 ISBN 978-0-525-93567-4

Recently there has been a deluge of books on managerial theory, “how-to” scenarios and inspirational tomes about the “good life,” but rarely can an author combine these genres. DeVos, co-founder and retired president of Amway, does so effectively with this study of how to be entrepreneurial, successful and compassionate. Offering dozens of emotional anecdotes about struggling and then successful people he knew at Amway, DeVos develops an intriguing 16-part “Credo for Compassionate Capitalism” that draws heavily on the Judeo-Christian ethical tradition, then melds its precepts with those of capitalism. His thoughts on helping others, racial and religious toleration and the environment are impressive, as are his positions on credit availability and business behavior. Of obvious interest to Amway’s two million distributors, his book should also have strong appeal for general readers.

Asked to describe capitalism, people view it as “Selfish”, “Greedy” and “Corrupt”. Free markets and a liberal economic order continue to be the best ways to cut extreme poverty, to reduce inequality and to make the world richer, healthier, better educated and more equal. In Scotland, the number of young people in private rented accommodation has trebled over the past 20 years. We now live in a world in which whole sectors of the job market may disappear in the time it takes to educate a child from primary to secondary school. To help young people negotiate this new landscape, smart governments will respond by doing more to advance technical education to give young people the adaptive skills, particularly in service jobs, that will help them earn a living in a newly automated world. With the right policies, we can show in 2018 how free markets and the state are not in conflict, but can work in tandem to improve our quality of life. The role of the state must be as an enabler: giving people the opportunities they would otherwise not have-to buy a home, or to learn skills-if we left it to market forces. We must not lose faith in the power of free enterprise and a free society. We should acknowledge that the market can fail, seek out those areas where it is not working, and use government to shift the balance back in favour of the marginalised. Free markets have delivered peace and prosperity to billions.

Compassionate Capitalism Is Possible Through Effective Corporate Philanthropy

Charitable giving is no longer just something you do around the holidays. With Millennials valuing socially focused companies more than ever, success is virtually unattainable if you aren’t giving back. In 2014, corporate giving was only at $18.45 billion compared to the $265 billion from individual donations. According to Suzanne DiBianca, the Chief Philanthropy Officer at Salesforce and keynote speaker at New Orleans Entrepreneur Week, it’s because, simply put, companies need money. DiBianca pioneered a philanthropic model that will hopefully usher in a new era of corporate giving. “The real assets in a company are the people that work there, the products that they have, and their ability to advocate for change in policy,” said DiBianca in her keynote speech at New Orleans Entrepreneur Week. As DiBianca puts it, charitable giving is about more than reaching your target audience. Giving back is something that benefits the entire community, helping to build an ecosystem that can support everyone from any background. The most important takeaway from DiBianca’s speech was that the future of business is philanthropic. Get on board with the giving back movement or your business will be left behind.
