The government takes one from me and give to it you. I breed them and the government kills me and take all three. Capitalism isn’t the best government possible but it is the best in the world. The more money you make the more taxes the government takes. The more money they take, the more they can squander……………….and so it goes.

Why Capitalism is The Most Compassionate System On Earth

Understanding the debate around ‘compassionate capitalism’

NR Narayana Murthy has flagged the issue of distributive justice in corporate India – the widening gap between the top earners and the bulk of those lower down, especially at a time when the economy is slowing. As the West debated unconscionably high executive salaries and compensation, the fabled investor Warren Buffett observed that the way to get fatcat corporates to change was to embarrass them. Since Sikka made his announcement on August 18, a wider debate has raged over whether a founder who has stepped down and is not a dominant shareholder, ought to indulge in the kind of public campaign that NRN mounted – rather than making an unambiguous choice between total detachment and committing himself to addressing Infy’s challenges as part of the board. The debate has also touched on issues of conformity to a company’s core cultural values and ethos. Murthy has flagged the issue of distributive justice in corporate India – the widening gap between the top earners and the bulk of those lower down, especially at a time when the economy is slowing. 

Compensation for the top deck has continued to soar higher above the company median in some of India’s celebrated private banks – at least one of which, interestingly, had an Infy-like culture of granting stock until some years ago. The National Stock Exchange of India Ltd was in a controversy regarding payouts to top executives. The counter-argument, of course, is that these practices are not illegal, and have the sanction of the board of directors and shareholders. In his annual letter to shareholders in 2006, Buffett made the point that compensation reform will only occur if the largest institutional shareholders demand a fresh look at the system. In India, the largest shareholder is LIC, which is owned by the government. 

Regulators in India have been careful not to intervene – even though the central bank has, in the past, shot down proposals from private and foreign banks to offer sign-on bonuses and parachutes designed to protect bosses who are fired. That’s the question shareholders – especially institutional shareholders – must put to those on the boards and the compensation and audit committees of many Indian firms.

The clamour for compassionate capitalism

Those calling for compassionate capitalism need to be aware that such statements can come off as nugatory, or worse yet, can rebound. The media is rife with news of Yahoo’s shareholders’ vote on Thursday, 8 June. Electing to approve Yahoo’s sale to Verizon will make them richer by billions of dollars, while also enriching Marissa Mayer, the current chief executive officer of Yahoo, by almost $264 million. One could argue that Mayer’s windfall has very little to do with her work at Yahoo, since the firm failed on many fronts when compared to its arch-rival Google, and is instead due to the investment performance of two bets placed years ago by Jerry Yang, one of Yahoo’s founders, in two Asian internet giants-the Alibaba group in China and Yahoo Japan. Yahoo’s stock has more than trebled in value during Mayer’s tenure, going up from around $16 to about $50 a share on 7 June. 

Since most of Mayer’s pay was in stock and stock options, she now stands to benefit handsomely. It is they who provided their capital by buying ownership stakes in Yahoo. Mayer is just one of the many lucky managers who have made fortunes simply by sticking around due to the stock option based compensation structures that are de rigueur in today’s corporations, made possible in part by the seminal work linking stock options and executive compensation done at my alma mater, the University of Rochester, by its professors Michael Jensen, William Meckling and Kevin Murphy. True compassionate capitalism would mean that the shareholders of Yahoo are willing to forgo some of the profits they stand to make from the deal to benefit the axed employees. If they want to be paragons of compassionate capitalism, the natural next step would be for these investors to share their current dividends and future profits from their stock holdings with the lower level workers at these firms, who are now presumably cannon fodder in a relentless world which encourages survival of the fittest. 

Capitalism, like loyalty, is a reciprocal arrangement. I would advise caution before we use terms like compassionate capitalism.

Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw: compassionate capitalist

Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw argues that philanthropy too often tries to apply temporary fixes to intractable problems. Kiran graduated from Federation University Australia in 1976, becoming India’s first female brewmaster. She worked as a technical consultant at breweries in India and Australia and was later offered the position of head master brewer at a brewery in Scotland. In 1978, in a makeshift office in a garage in Bangalore, Kiran founded Biocon India, a joint venture in which she had 70 percent ownership. Within a year, Biocon India was manufacturing and exporting enzymes to the United States and Europe, the first Indian company to do so. 

It soon grew into India’s largest enzymes company. Under Kiran’s leadership, it has since become India’s largest biopharmaceutical company and Asia’s largest producer of insulins. The second Indian to sign the Giving Pledge, Kiran is motivated by personal experience: the illnesses of her husband, mother, and best friend led to a focus on cancer research and treatment. The state-of-the-art, Mazumdar-Shaw Cancer Center in Bangalore, one of the largest hospitals of its kind in India, was founded on an affordable healthcare model that allows low-income patients to access treatment that is subsidized by those who can pay the full cost of their therapy. Kiran is particularly concerned about the financial burden that debilitating diseases like cancer impose on patients in poor countries. 

Through the Biocon Foundation, Kiran has adopted a large number of Primary Health Centres in rural India and worked to transform them into telemedicine- and technology-enabled centres with links to doctors who are based in major cities. Kiran has also used her philanthropy to create the 1,400-bed Mazumdar-Shaw Cancer Centre in partnership with Dr. Devi Shetty, whose commitment to compassionate capitalism is legendary.

Compassionate Capitalism and the Odious Orphanage – Rev. Christopher Marlin-Warfield, CFRE

Lately, I’ve been playing with an idea I call ‘compassionate capitalism’. This is the idea that we can use capitalism – an economic system where private parties own the means of production and operate them to make a profit for themselves – to solve big social problems like poverty. Charity skeptics really like compassionate capitalism, and both Dan Pallotta and Steve Rothschild are advocates. While it’s probably true that capitalism can be used to mitigate big social problems, there no guarantee that it will be used to do that. If you want some absurd dystopianism, here it is: a smart investor – who only wants to make as much money as possible – could invest in the companies that cause social problems and the ones that work to solve them. 

It needed money, and it could get that money by charging wealthy westerners for the experience of coming to the orphanage and reading to the orphans. Mission trip volunteers who go to that orphanage to read to orphans aren’t doing anything wrong. It’s the mindset that makes the orphanage be willing to exploit those orphans in order to get money. Now, that’s not exactly capitalism, but it’s capitalism adjacent. The odious orphanage is willing to abandon – or, at least, to downplay – other values in the interest of acquiring money. 

It’s a perfect example of why we need to make sure that capitalism is bound by higher values: even ‘compassionate capitalism’ that is trying to solve big social problems can wander into a perverted place. We need to make sure that capitalism is bound by higher values: even ‘compassionate capitalism’ that is trying to solve big social problems can wander into a perverted place.

Pacific Views: Can Capitalism Be Compassionate?

Recently there has been a national discussion in India about how to create a more vibrant and equitable economy. The election that threw out Atal Bihari Vajpayee was largely seen as the rural voters striking back at the politicians that favored the urban voters and especially the expanding high tech industry. So the big question now is how can the wealth be spread across a broader cross-section of Indians and how India build a middle class that can be the stable foundation for a viable democracy. One Indian entrepreneur, Narayan Murthy, founder of global software giant Infosys, believes that India needs to harness capitalism with a real face of compassion in order to create a positive future for the country. When Murthy talks about compassionate capitalism, he backs up his words with action that shows he really means what he says. 

Although he is a very successful businessman, he voluntarily limits his own salary to under $50,000 per year and donates a good proportion of his company’s profits to charity. The current Republican defintion is the same as Mussollini’s defintion of fascism, a few large corporations running the show. The progressives idea of Capitalism is probably Eutopian, that is unrealistic; it dosen’t take into account greed, a natural thing. Maybe capitalism can be compassionate and somewhat equalizing, but we’ll never know under Bush. Facism, not democracy and capitalism, is his legacy for the United States.

Key Characteristics of Conscious Leaders

Now she wants to take a look at some key characteristics of conscious leaders. All were leaders who fulfilled a purpose and vision that served the greatest good by empowering and elevating others to a higher plane. In the book Conscious Capitalism, authors John Mackey and Raj Sisodia note that conscious leaders have high analytical, emotional, spiritual and systems intelligence. They also have an orientation toward servant leadership, high integrity and a great capacity for love and care. As a coach, I have observed conscious leaders in action and the impact they have on their organizations. 

Based on my experience with coaching and leading, as well as insights gained from studying leadership research and great leaders, I have come to recognize that conscious leaders tend to share certain characteristics. They transcend ego for the greater good of the organization and humanity. To lead in such a way requires courage, faith and the conscious decision to boldly go where perhaps you have never gone before. Conscious leadership isn’t esoteric or available to a select few. We can think big and take practical steps to boldly step into our highest potential as leaders. 

The world needs more enlightened leaders who can change the world for the better, today and beyond. To continue reading on this subject, go to Simple Practices to Become a Great Leader.

Difference Between Mitosis and Meiosis

Meiosis and Mitosis describe cell division in eukaryotic cells when the chromosome separates. In mitosis chromosomes separates and form into two identical sets of daughter nuclei, and it is followed by cytokinesis. Basically, in mitosis the mother cell divides into two daughter cells which are genetically identical to each other and to the parent cell. Metaphase- alignment of chromosomes at the metaphase plate. Telophase- de-condensation of chromosomes and surrounded by nuclear membranes, formation of cleavage furrow. 

Meiosis is a reductional cell division where the number of chromosomes is divided into half. Gametes formations occur in animal cell and meiosis is necessary for sexual reproduction which occurs in eukaryotes. Meiosis influence stable sexual reproduction by halving of ploidy or chromosome count. Anaphase I – shortening of microtubules, pulling of chromosomes toward opposing poles, forming two haploid sets.5. Telophase I – arrival of chromosomes to the poles with each daughter cell containing half the number of chromosomes. 

Meiosis II – second part of the meiotic process with the production of four haploid cells from the two haploid cells. Meiosis- reductional cell division and the number of chromosomes is divided into half; it is essential for sexual reproduction, and therefore it occurs in eukaryotes.

Privately Owned Society

In The Future, Alternate History or simply somewhere apart from historical location, there exists a society where virtually everything is privately owned. Cyber Punk settings often do not explain the precise laws used in their respective societies, so it’s not always clear if everything is actually privately owned or if corporations just act as if they own everything, laws be damned. In the post-apocalyptic setting, all formerly government run programs from schools to prisons are privately owned. The sequel, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, starts on a space station owned and managed by a private corporation, and we learn that Standard Oil now has its own senator. In the Hostile Takeover series, Godwin and Proudhon cities are two different flavors, with Proudhon being a Company Town where everything is owned by the PSDC, and Godwin a Wretched Hive where everything is owned by whoever can keep it. 

They got exterminated in the second game, so the position of Privately Owned Society in the third game gets taken by the Iridium Corporation, which is at least somewhat more moral than the Korx were. Absolutely everything is owned by the Crimson Corporation, which runs a meritocracy based on how profitable an individual Druuge is. Spoofed in The Simpsons episode You Only Move Twice, where Homer gets a job for the fictional Mega Corp. Globex Corporation and the family moves to Cyprus Creek, a town owned and operated by Globex Corp. for its employees, with its own school, shopping center and boardwalk among other things, and presumably all public services are run by the company. 

In any society whose statehood is despotism, the head of the state is the only free man and he owns everything within the state. King Leopold II of Belgium owned what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo and considered it a business investment. Even later, after the Congo Free State became the Belgian Congo, corporations still had a large power over their mines, plantations and the living quarters of their workers: they provided them with schooling, healthcare and welfare Bakwanga was build and owned by the MiBanote For Minière de Bakwanga, who mined diamonds there, and sometimes destroyed buildings in order to access the gems! Many ancient political systems ran like this. Among the Franks, the kingdoms were actually treated as a part of the estate and consequently divided among the heirs as would be any real or chattel property owned by a deceased person.

Capitalism: Latest News, Photos, Videos on Capitalism

The wealthiest in India have cornered a huge part of the wealth created in the country through crony capitalism and inheritance, the report said. It is this stigmatised capitalism that has made reform of the Twin Balance Sheet problem very difficult, Arvind Subramanian said. Former actor Shatrugan Sinha has become the first MP from his party to call for an investigation to determine if the son of BJP chief Amit Shah benefited from crony capitalism. India’s billionaires believe in rugged, muscular capitalism – so at the first hint of trouble, they go running to mommy. The commerce and industry minister said the debate here at WEF has been about the fate of globalisation and whether capitalism needs to be demonised. 

Fidel Castro spent his life combating US capitalism, but by the time he died, American cruise ships, regular flights and even the embassy had returned to the communist-ruled island. Veteran industrialist Adi Godrej on Monday cautioned against high tax rates under the Goods and Services Tax, as he praised the Narendra Modi government for being reform-oriented and bringing down corruption and crony capitalism. Crony wealth in India has come down sharply from 18 per cent of GDP in 2008 to just 3 per cent of GDP today, according to The Economist’s index of crony capitalism. Pope Francis arrived in the United States on Tuesday for his first visit – a historic six-day trip to the spiritual home of capitalism after his tour of communist-ruled Cuba.Pope Francis Spans Divides on Tour of Rivals he Brought Together. Pope Francis sets off on Saturday for a trip spanning communist Cuba and the spiritual home of capitalism, the United States, erstwhile bitter enemies he has helped bring closer together. 

Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan interacted with students at a session organized by NDTV. Speaking to NDTV’s Dr Prannoy Roy, the RBI chief said though there are concerns about crony capitalism, we have plenty of good business people in India. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said that allegations of crony capitalism against the previous government harmed India’s image globally as the spectrum and coal block allocations became defining moments against the country.

Marc Benioff

Marc Russell Benioff is an American internet entrepreneur, author and philanthropist. Benioff and his wife, Lynne, have focused their personal philanthropy on improving public education and advancing children’s health care through UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, at the University of California, San Francisco. Benioff expected to continue programming after college, but USC professors advised him to obtain customer-oriented work experience and Benioff joined Oracle Corporation after graduation in a customer-service role. On March 17, 2017, Benioff was included in a business leaders’ symposium organized by the Trump Administration during German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to the White House. Benioff created the 1-1-1 model of integrated corporate philanthropy, by which companies contribute 1 percent of equity, 1 percent of employee hours and 1 percent of product back to the communities it serves. 

In June 2010, Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne announced a $100 million gift to UCSF Children’s Hospital with the goal of not only seeing the new hospital built but significantly advancing children’s healthcare worldwide. Marc and Lynne Benioff have also donated to The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization developing technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Benioff has said that businesses are the greatest platforms for change in the world. In March 2015, Benioff announced Salesforce would cancel all employee programs and travel in the state of Indiana after the passing of SB 101, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a controversial bill which would allow companies and individuals to deny service to LGBT individuals based on religious beliefs. As the largest tech employer in Indiana Benioff led a global effort of business leaders fighting back against the legislation, ultimately leading to the Indiana State Legislature passing an amendment to the bill containing protections for LGBT customers, tenants and employees. 

In April 2015, Benioff announced that he would be reviewing all salaries at Salesforce to ensure men and women were being paid equally for comparable work. In March 2018, Benioff announced that he would be donating 1 million USD to March for Our Lives.

Encore: Taming Capitalism Run Wild

For the majority of people, capitalism is not delivering the goods. The very wealthy getting a trivial increase in taxes while the payroll tax of working people will go from 4.2 percent to 6.2 percent. So you’ve taken the folks at the bottom, the people who work hard, full-time jobs, and you’ve made their economic condition worse over a 50-year period, while wealth has accumulated at the top. If the 15 million, that’s the estimate of the White House, the 15 million American workers whose wages will go up if we raise the minimum wage, we have to count also, the question, those people will now have a higher income. To develop abstract theories of how economics works to make it all like it’s a stable, equilibrium that meets people’s needs in an optimal way. That’s useless to people who want to learn how to run a business, because it’s a fantasy. Those people teach you how the economy actually works and how you’ll have to make decisions if you’re going to run a business. RICHARD WOLFF: You know, but you know, capitalism- I like to say to people, capitalism, like all systems, when it comes into being, is born a few hundred years ago in Europe and spreads around the world, like other systems before it. BILL MOYERS: The organization she co-founded, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, is fighting to improve wages and working conditions for the people who cook and serve the food we eat at restaurants and then clean up when we’re done. These workers earn poverty wages because the minimum wage for tipped workers at the federal level has been frozen for 22 years at $2.13 an hour, and it’s the reason that food servers use food stamps at double the rate of the rest of the U.S. workforce, and have a poverty rate of three times the rest of the U.S. workforce.

Understanding the debate around ‘compassionate capitalism’

The debate on corporate salaries, which has raged for long in both India and the West, is complex. As the West debated unconscionably high executive salaries and compensation, the fabled investor Warren Buffett observed that the way to get fatcat corporates to change was to embarrass them. Since Sikka made his announcement on August 18, a wider debate has raged over whether a founder who has stepped down and is not a dominant shareholder, ought to indulge in the kind of public campaign that NRN mounted – rather than making an unambiguous choice between total detachment and committing himself to addressing Infy’s challenges as part of the board. The debate has also touched on issues of conformity to a company’s core cultural values and ethos. Murthy has flagged the issue of distributive justice in corporate India – the widening gap between the top earners and the bulk of those lower down, especially at a time when the economy is slowing. Compensation for the top deck has continued to soar higher above the company median in some of India’s celebrated private banks – at least one of which, interestingly, had an Infy-like culture of granting stock until some years ago. In his annual letter to shareholders in 2006, Buffett made the point that compensation reform will only occur if the largest institutional shareholders demand a fresh look at the system. In India, the largest shareholder is LIC, which is owned by the government. That’s the question shareholders – especially institutional shareholders – must put to those on the boards and the compensation and audit committees of many Indian firms.

A Better World: Compassionate Capitalism

‘Compassionate capitalism’ urged for India. Indian entrepreneur Narayan Murthy, founder of global software giant Infosys, says “Compassionate capitalism” is the only solution to poverty in the country. 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. “We believe that if India has to solve its problem of poverty, we have to embrace capitalism, ensure that jobs are created, and make sure that market-driven policies are accepted,” he said. “However, to do that, the people who are the evangelists of capitalism, must conduct themselves in a manner that will appeal to the masses.”People must be able to relate to them easily. They must lead a normal life, a simple life, and people must be able to say, ‘look, if these jokers can do it, we can do it better’.

Is compassion compatible with capitalism?

While there may be compassionate individuals operating within capitalist systems, capitalism itself does not naturally merge with compassion. I say this with a much stronger understanding of compassion than I do of capitalism and all of its manifestations. Capitalism did not create competition, however it does need it for survival. Capitalism can never be cooperative or communal; it lives on competition. Competition does not allow for mutual empathic experiences. Competition takes advantage of others’ weakness, exploits vulnerabilities, and doesn’t look back. If there are no winners or losers, then a competition did not take place. Without competition, there can be no capitalism. Admittedly, capitalists can be compassionate, but they are not operating within an essentially compassionate system. As a system, capitalism features an elite minority being supported by a majority. It must be noted that capitalism can hardly be faulted for not being compassionate. It shouldn’t be said that capitalism lacks compassion any more than it lacks wisdom, or empathy, or mindfulness, or other lofty ideals/practices that many aspire to.

Compassionate Capitalism

Blaine Bartlett joins Ivan Misner to discuss his International Best Selling book, “Compassionate Capitalism: Journey to the Soul of Business”. Pay attention to the soul of your business or you might miss incredible opportunities. Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. Its activities transcend national and international borders. Its activities are not unduly constrained by financial, political, cultural, ethnic, or religious concerns. 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. In the world today, the absolute opposite of this occurs. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. Traditional capitalism forgets an important variable, that of happiness. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. It is not to produce ever-cheaper goods and services. Compassionate capitalism is an economic system meant to make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun.

‘Compassionate capitalism’ urged for India

Indian entrepreneur Narayan Murthy, founder of global software giant Infosys, says “Compassionate capitalism” is the only solution to poverty in the country. Debate is currently raging throughout India over the economic policy of the new government, following a lukewarm media response and stock market jitters. “We believe that if India has to solve its problem of poverty, we have to embrace capitalism, ensure that jobs are created, and make sure that market-driven policies are accepted,” he said. 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 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. “I wanted to come back to India and conduct an experiment in creating wealth legally and ethically, and creating jobs, because I thought that was the best way of eliminating poverty. That’s how Infosys was born.” 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. “That meant these great multinationals came to India – IBM, Digital, Texas Instruments, Microsoft,” he said. “Once they came to India, we learned a lot of good things from them – human resources policies, the importance of physical infrastructure, technology, a market-driven approach.”

The rule of law Conscious Capitalism = four primary principles plus Conscious Business What is a Conscious Business? Conscious Business is based on four primary principles i i l off enterprise: t i 1. The enterprise has a higher purpose beyond maximizing profits and shareholder value 2. The enterprise is managed to optimize value for all of the major interdependent stakeholders 3. If we look for win-winwin solutions we’ll find them instead. The human mind is infinitely creative. Conscious Capitalism creates new mental pathways to unleash human creativity.

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. 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. If we take the compassion out of capitalism, what’s left? 1929.

Forest Swords: Compassion

Forest Swords’ 2013 album Engravings was acclaimed as a bold, singular album that wove dub, house, and ambient rock into a triumphant and emotional avant-garde electronic album. This follow-up, Compassion, sees the man behind the Forest Swords moniker, Merseyside-based producer Matthew Barnes, expand on that template and straighten out many of the more jagged edges that characterized Engravings to leave a more outward looking, atmospheric offering which is no less thrilling. The percussion pops and crackles like the sound of distant gunfire before Barnes makes room for a rich interplay of keyboard riffs. When discussing the song, Barnes has described the song as “The point where tension and stress boil over into a sort of euphoria”. The song also features one of his clearest vocal samples yet as a crystal clear, desolate voice intones “I fear something’s wrong / Panic is on.” It’s a bleak conclusion to the song which allows the listener a moment of reflection. “Exalter” features bursts of distorted vocals and single piano notes that hint at a more positive outcome, feeling like a bridge that has to crossed to reach that state of euphoria, Barnes mentioned in his description of “Panic”. Along with “Arms Out” it demonstrates beautifully Barnes’ ability to tap into the emotions and pull on the heart strings using evocative vocal samples. The use of samples highlights Barnes’ uncanny ability to seamlessly knit samples together as he consistently blurs the lines between old and new. “Raw Language” brings back the magisterial, classical strings but Barnes takes them somewhere new as it evolves into an atrophied jazz song. Off-kilter sax weaves its way in and out of the mix and Barnes creates stepping stones out of multi-layered vocal tracks that eventually spin and clatter together. Barnes has created an expressive atmospheric album that resonates with emotion both positive and negative. Often songs feel claustrophobic and confined until a single note or riff signals a change to something altogether more expansive and panoramic, like opening the door to a dusty room that has been shut up for years.

Compassionate Capitalism

Just as our culture falsely draws a sharp line between ethics and business, it also draws a sharp line between life and business. The people in Robinson’s imagined community are all harmoniously interwoven, so that all political and business decisions are made communally. Our culture, with its strange dual reverence and hatred for business, seems to regard it as a superior plane of existence, bound by its own rules which are not that of the democratic world. Why? “Because if they want to come here, they should play by our rules.” But then, on the same theory, why can’t a community tell a business not to enter unless it plans to keep its promises? Why is it acceptable in the spirit of free enterprise to make a community dependent on a single enterprise, then abandon it when “Shareholder value” dictates? I am not arguing here that we must always substitute legal for moral rules, but why don’t we at least see a mass layoff typically as a shockingly immoral act? The most important is the one I keep harping on: we uncritically regard business as functioning by rules of its own that precede our everyday morality in importance. We have gotten out of lines of business before, but we have always managed to redeploy people rather than fire them. Because a business is a community, loyalty to one another is more important than perfection. A succcessful business, like any other community, is a alchemical concoction. More often than we see, the morally correct decision in business often happens to be the strategic one as well. There are four constituencies which must be considered in the management of any business: the owners, the employees, the customers, and the public. Another way of looking at business is that many businesses are only profitable if we ignore the costs which are paid by other people. The strange lens through which we regard business, the principle that it is an “Older brother” of democracy free from any rules, usually dictates that third party costs of business activities are either officially ignored, left to rest on the affected individuals themselves, or are paid by the taxpayers.

Socialism vs Capitalism vs Marxism vs yourownmadeup-ism

On top of this, I donate my own time to church/missions, and I fund-raise for & donate additional money every year to worldwide poverty relief. Compassion is a human emotion, far more important to me than econmoic issues… People who really want to change their world could find a way to make econmoic issue work in their favor. You talk about solving the debt of undeveloped countries. If we use real economic strategy to create sustainable economies for undeveloped countries, then we can give them even a little money, which they can use to get rid of that debt. It has been pointed out that while the developed world has insisted that Africa open its markets and eliminate public subsidies, this has been one-sided as the developed world has not opened its markets to agricultural goods from Africa nor has it eliminated agricultural subsidies. African leaders repeatedly request that the developed nations abolish the subsidies they provide their farmers and open their markets to African agricultural goods, if the West do…. -The developed nations would produce less food locally, therefore providing a larger export market for developing countries. Food prices would rise without the artificial subsidy and therefore would increase profits for food exports from the developing world. The developing nations could adopt a more balanced agriculture policy, producing food and grain for export; this would provide a surplus that would shield countries from famine. If it were not for the industry & wealth of the private sector, then charitable organizations would have no money/wealth to donate to poor people. By the way, can we please make a distinction between poor governments and poor people. I am all for people helping people by donating money, it’s what I think is right; but, I do not think that this discussion belongs in this thread. On the other hand, I don’t think it is right for governments to give money to other governments, those that would squander the money when it could better serve other people. Governments ultimately owe responsibility and compassion to its people, Capitalist or Communist… If you wanna save many lives you somethimes have to help those who seem like idiots who need education not help.

Compassionate capitalism is the most pragmatic one

According to David Green, much of the world’s problems are due to a human artifice that creates economic paradigms favoring the concentration of wealth into the hands of the few. Global efforts to make medical technology and healthcare services sustainable, affordable and accessible to all, particularly to the poorer two-thirds of humanity are desperately needed. David Green developed an economic paradigm that he calls humanized capitalism, which would make these healthcare products and services available and affordable to the poor. This paradigm uses production capacity and surplus revenue to serve all economic strata, rich and poor, in a way that is both financially self-sustaining for the company, and affordable to all members of society. In 1992 Green directed the establishment of Aurolab, a not-for-profit manufacturing facility in India. Aurolab is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of intraocular lenses, which are surgically implanted in the eye to replace the cloudy lens during cataract surgery. In developing countries, Aurolab sells lenses for two to four US dollars; a price that helps countless patients that otherwise could never afford such treatment to preserve their sight and ability to work. Green helped develop high-volume, quality eye-care programs that are affordable to the poor and self-sustainable, independent from user fees. Collaborating with several institutions, he helped create an ‘Eye Fund’ that provides fifteen million US dollars in affordable loan financing for sustainable eye care programs and a related 1.5 million US dollar capacity-building grant. At the same time, he works with the Pacific Vision Foundation to develop an eye hospital serving northern California where revenues from insured patients would cover costs for the uninsured, and collaborates with Grameen Health in Bangladesh to develop eye hospitals. Finally, he developed the social enterprise company, Quantum Catch, to develop affordable retinal imaging for eye disease detection and monitoring, and a non-invasive method for monitoring glucose levels for diabetics. Recently, he has focused on making good hearing affordable and accessible as a co-founder of Conversion Sound, which developed an affordable high-quality digital hearing device.
