Anand Krishna’s musings

As a citizen of Bangalore, I am currently more worried about electricity. The monsoons in Karnataka have been far below normal. Several districts are lkely to be declared as drought-affected. This has an adverse impact on power generation and therefore, distribution. At a time like this, the BJP’s poll promise to supply free or highly-subsidized power for irrigation will come back to bite it. 

I read a report in today’s Bangalore edition of the Times of India that former Chief Minister S. Bangarappa has called upon farmers to destroy the meters proposed to be installed. Some have large land holdings and generate millions of Rupees in revenue, if not profit, each year.

Hidden Brain

July 2, 2018 There is great comfort in the familiar. It’s one reason humans often flock to other people who share the same interests, laugh at the same jokes, hold the same political views. Familiar ground may not be the best place to cultivate creativity. From science and business to music and the world of fashion, researchers have found that people with deep connections to people from other countries and cultures often see benefits in terms of their creative output. This week on Hidden Brain, we look at the powerful connection between the ideas we dream up and the people who surround us, and what it really takes to think outside the box.

061, Raj Sisodia, Conscious Capitalism, Inc.

Raj Sisodia is one of the thought leaders of the Conscious Capitalism movement. His books Firms of Endearment and Conscious Capitalism were major influences on my thinking about social entrepreneurship. They are part of the reason that I produce Social Entrepreneur today. In this interview, Raj describes the research he conducted on marketing and how he began to understand that there was a better way of doing business – a more conscious form of capitalism. He also talks about his new book Shakti Leadership: Embracing Feminine and Masculine Power in Business. ‘Many of these companies talk openly about building a business on love.

Richard Pryor 40 Years Ago: ‘Promoting Racism Is Part of Capitalism’

Police killings of unarmed black people have poured gasoline on the race relations debate in America, but the United States has been a divided country since its founding. In a television interview with journalist Bill Boggs, the late, great comedian explained why white America doesn’t want to stop racism. For some bonus material, Pryor talks about his comedic influences with James Earl Jones and gets roasted. A journalist and innovator with two decades in digital media, Ortiz founded the mobile app startup Evrybit, a live storytelling and reporting tool, as a 2014 John.

Affluenza…The Show

Glenn Stanton shakes his head with a look of mild disgust. Mere miles from alpine meadows and mountain creeks, one would think more people would take the time to stop and smell the pine needles. A free-market conservative, Stanton believes the American economic system is the best there is. Materialism and mall mania are taking a toll on the country, he says. Some family therapists warn that the price is a culture in which people treat one another like products. 

Beyond that, arguments about money are known to play a central role in 90 percent of divorce cases.

The World Dialogue: Can Capitalism be Compassionate?

Get social Capitalism has always won its battles against competing economic systems, whether it was feudalism in the 19th century or socialism and communism in the 20th century. Despite its relative success, it continues to battle its critics. Free market economics may have proved to be the efficient way to allocate scarce resources but concerns about rising inequality over the last three decades the world over have raised questions about whether it is the fairest way to allocate resources. The welfare state of the West, which is now bursting at the seams, was an attempt to show that capitalism can be compassionate. India’s obsession with redistributive policies like the MGNREGA shows similar intent. 

Governments are inefficient and often do not deliver the desired results. Both nations know capitalism and compassion intimately.

A compassionate teacher is a

Compassionate silence very well may be the truest form of compassion we can muster. The minute we open our mouths we run the risk of judgment and scorn, if not implicitly so then very possibly run the risk of what we say being inferred as judgment or scorn. Jane Austen, in Pride and Prejudice use the phrase at least twice to describe Darcy’s compassionate silence for Elizabeth and the new age meditations of manifestation it is compassionate silence that is listed as the very first step to manifesting ones dreams. As brutal and uncaring as the universe can seem, indeed its steady march towards total destruction or endless expansion of coldness and darkness would make it seem as a brutal place and yet surely the universe must be compassionate for it is truly silent on our pain and suffering.

Choice between communism and capitalism

Corporations can buy their way out of everything and get massive tax breaks while your average salary bloke ends up paying larger than his share…, ALL Taxes are passed along down the line to the individual. Inequality between rich and poor grows. US foreign policy apart from being influenced by lobbyists that represent foreign governments is also heavily influenced by oil&gas companies, financial industry and the weapons industry that need wars so that their weapons get sold. All these elements are able to get politicians to go so far because of unbridled capitalism that values access to capital over people. Politicians will take money and favors from anybody.

Hybrid Economics – the balance between capitalism and socialism

If you are an extreme capitalist, you’re probably wrong. If you are an extreme socialist, you’re probably wrong. The right answer lies somewhere in between these two extremes. Consider my widget company:In an extreme capitalism I can hire thieves to take my competitor’s truck fleet at night when he’s sleeping, or maybe just murder him outright to increase my profits. In an extreme socialism the government can tell me that they don’t approve of my widget business, or require me to operate my business according to their instructions. 

The right answer is to be able to pursue my own ideas the way that I want, but within the limits of civility.

Marc Benioff & Karen Southwick

In Compassionate Capitalism, Salesforce.com CEO Mark Benioff and veteran journalist Karen Southwick show companies, large and small, how they can use all of their resources to help their communities and, in doing so, help themselves and their employees as well. By using real-life examples from dozens of corporations and nonprofits, including Hasbro, IBM and Levi Strauss, the authors show corporate leaders how they can dare to be great by integrating community service within their organizations.

Compassionate Capitalist – When Angel Investors are “Takers”

Qlipoth: Easier to imagine the end of the world…

Cyberpunk is not really apocalyptic, and I think the better coordinate is Ballard, the Ballard of the multiple ‘end-of-the-worlds’, minus the Byronic melancholy and the rich orchestral pessimism and Weltschmerz. For it is the end of the world that is in question here; and that could be exhilarating if apocalypse were the only way of imagining that world’s disappearance. ‘ Someone once said that it is easier to imagine the end of the world than to imagine the end of capitalism. We can now revise that and witness the attempt to imagine capitalism by way of imagining the end of the world. Ballard’s imagined world is reduced to the dimensions of that island created by intertwined expressways on which individuals in their cellular commodities hurtle to their destruction or that apartment complex in which the wealthy and professional classes degenerate into anarchic tribal warfare among themselves. The transformation of H. 

Bruce Franklin’s Marxist analysis of the ideology of Ballard and his genre into Jameson’s vague quip in Hegelese regarding the disposition of some amorphous and unspecified Geist of the Zeit perfectly exemplifies the relentless, Orwellian cultural strategy which characterized the Reagan era’s political reaction in culture. Even after the ‘end of history’ there has seemed to persist some historical curiosity of a generally systemic – rather than merely anecdotal – kind: not merely to know what will happen next, but as a more general anxiety about the larger fate or destiny of our system or mode of production. It seems easier for us today to imagine the thoroughgoing deterioration of the earth and of nature than the breakdown of late capitalism; and perhaps that is due to some weakness in our imaginations. This is the sense of the revival of that ‘end of history’ Alexandre Kojève thought he could find in Hegel and Marx, and which he took to mean some ultimate achievement of democratic equality in both American capitalism and Soviet communism, only later identifying a significant variant of it in what he called Japanese ‘snobisme’, but that we can today identify as postmodernity itself. In another sense, of course, this is simply the old ‘end of ideology’ with a vengeance, and cynically plays on the waning of collective hope in a particularly conservative market climate. 

The end of history is also the final form of the temporal paradoxes we have tried to dramatize here; namely that a rhetoric of absolute change is, for the postmodern, no more satisfactory than the language of absolute identity and unchanging standardization cooked up by the great corporations, whose concept of innovation is best illustrated by the neologism and the logo and their equivalents in the real of built space, ‘lifestyle’ corporate culture and psychic programming. As Fredric Jameson perspicaciously remarked, nobody seriously considers possible alternatives to capitalism any longer, whereas popular imagination is persecuted by the visions of the forthcoming ‘breakdown of nature’, of the stoppage of all life on earth – it seems easier to imagine the ‘end of the world’ than a far more modest change in the mode of production, as if liberal capitalism is the ‘real’ that will somehow survive even under conditions of a global ecological catastrophe.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Success

SIX KEY DIMENSIONS OF CSR. In Western Europe, Japan, and North America, an increasing number of companies are finding that it makes good business sense to fully integrate the interests and needs of customers, employees, suppliers, communities, and our planet – as well as to those of shareholders – into corporate strategies. Whereas five years ago a survey by McKinsey & Company of the reasons for success in the machinery industry showed that factors such as cross-functional teams, single sourcing, and group work differentiated the best performing companies from the weaker ones, a more recent survey concluded that what differentiates the leaders from the laggards is their relationships with their customers and their suppliers. A number of companies participated in a workshop organized by Business for Social Responsibility recently in Hong Kong on this subject of monitoring child labor practices in Asian suppliers. Another organization helping companies improve their environmental performance is the International Network for Environmental Management, a world federation of non-profit business organizations for environmental management and sustainable development. 

Social investment: At another level, companies support initiatives in the areas of education and social problems such as unemployment, exclusion, and homelessness, often in partnership with government authorities and non-governmental organizations. Corporate involvement in the Brussels-based European Business Network for Social Cohesion and in projects to alleviate social exclusion is exemplary, as is the support of hundreds of the largest companies in the United Kingdom for the notable achievements of such associations as Business in the Community, the Prince of Wales Business Leaders Forum, and Common Purpose Partnerships: At a third level, corporations contribute to communities through direct support to activities which enhance their commercial success, including cause-related marketing. Of course, one of the questions frequently raised about activities and strategies in social responsibility is whether they detract from a company’s financial performance. The most comprehensive service of research and analysis of company environmental and social responsibility is offered by The Council on Economic Priorities. MANAGING FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Many companies are making significant improvements in their environmental and social management practices. 

The company must recognize and respect the personal worth of employees and allow them to share in the success of the company. During the past ten years, a number of business networks and companies have engaged in environmental and social accounting. The notion of ‘political companies’, on the other hand, concerns the business enterprise with its surrounding eco-system, the external stakeholders: shareholders, customers, the community, interest groups, standard-setting organisations, society at large.
