Conscious Capitalism and Compassion – Wolff Professional Services

One of the best moments of my life occurred last week at The Mindful Leadership Summit in D.C. I attended a break out session titled Conscious Capitalism. As a child, I started creating businesses in my head. Never very interested in things that just filled my time or entertained me, but in things that affected the world. Creating businesses to meet people’s needs, creating jobs, and making things is what moved me. 

I persisted but with less joy than I once had. I have had my own business for 20 years, actually a number of my own businesses through out my life, but the business that provided for me and my son for the past 20 years. Leaving me at odds with my desire to love the power of businesses, but the inner knowledge that the way we do business, is askew. Remembering the men and women of my childhood, their anger about money, their resentment toward power, sometimes made it strange to be in business. I still loved business, and saw it’s potential. 

I cried in that break out session on Conscious Capitalism, because my heart was renewed. There are communities and leaders who are actively evolving the great gifts of business and creating tools for leaders to become conscious, and these leaders bring their intentional wisdom to the drivers of economy that lift people up. Read the book: Conscious Capitalism, join the communities, attend the events. This is compassionate business, compassionate leadership, mindful leadership at it’s best. Cheers to greater purpose and meaning in our world, and in our businesses!

A Defense of Capitalism and Free Markets as Millennials Flock to Socialism in Droves – Investment Watch Blog

A once prosperous and fully functioning democratic nation in South America became proof positive of the ultimate failure of socialism. Another South American country teaches us a valuable lesson on the failure of socialism. As America’s Millennials are increasingly drawn to socialism and disgusted by capitalism, it is important to point to the recent collapse of Brazil. Socialism breeds corruption and promotes criminal politicians to the top. Despite these two telling examples from South America, Millennials in the U.S. 

no longer see socialism as a dirty word. Mark Thornton, Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and Book Review Editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics wrote an informative piece on mises.org bemoaning young Americans’ desire for socialism in the United States. A recent GenForward survey quantified Millennials’ support for socialism. Socialism is viewed as a kind of nationwide safe space, according to thin-skinned Millennials. For comparison’s sake, over half of Baby Boomers favor capitalism and only 26 percent support socialism. 

The numbers are in and America’s young adults appear to want socialism. Similar conclusions were found in a 2015 Reason-Rupe poll which revealed 58 percent of the same age group approved of socialism, up dramatically from a 2011 Pew poll that found 49 percent of young Americans viewing socialism positively. Supporters of socialism claim that capitalism cannot be trusted because humans are inherently greedy and selfish.

Compassionate Capitalism – by Sanjiv Mehta at the #India2022Exchange

Sage launches Sage Foundation to lead social philanthropy

Sage’s 2+2+2 community model sets benchmark for FTSE 100 companies. Sage today launches the Sage Foundation which sets the standard for Corporate Compassionate Capitalism around the world. Each of Sage’s 14,000 employees will be able to contribute five days per year in work time to volunteer with any non-profit organization they elect to support. The Sage Foundation will also give grants to create entrepreneurial opportunities for the young and disadvantaged within communities, as well as grants to match employee charitable donations and fundraising. The Sage Foundation has created a model of ‘2+2+2’: donating 2% of employee time each year, 2% of free cash flow* and 2 of Sage’s smart technology products for any charity, social enterprise or non-profit organization. 

This model demonstrates Sage’s commitment to philanthropic leadership in the FTSE 100. Driven by Sage’s ambition to connect its customers, colleagues and communities within an integrated model, the Sage Foundation will be open for business globally from 1st October 2015. With tens of thousands of non-profit organizations as existing Sage customers, the Sage Foundation will enhance Sage’s relationship with charity and social enterprise. Non-profit organizations will be able to apply for donated Sage One, Sage Life or X3 products, through the newly created Donation program. The Sage Foundation will benefit from Sage revenues from the non-profit sector; notionally ‘2%’ of free cash flow is equivalent to revenue gained from non-profit sector in FY2014. 

Sage has reimagined business and brings energy, experience and technology to inspire our customers to fulfil their dreams. Sage is a FTSE 100 company with 14,000 employees in 24 countries.

Compassionate Capitalism

Whenever Jan Stravers came home from the mission field, she brought crafts made by the Philipino women she worked with to sell to the churches she visited. The crafts were from family businesses that the Christian Reformed Church missionary and her husband had helped to start, and her supporting churches were among their main clients. In the 10 years that the Straverses worked as missionaries in the Philippines, they saw how small businesses can provide food, education, clothing, and a hope for the future to the poor in developing countries. After retiring from the mission field 10 years ago, Jan Stravers jumped at the chance to run International Arts and Gifts, a South Holland, Illinois, store selling handmade products made by artisans in the developing world. Slowly, the idea has been catching on among Christians that fair trade is a unique way of supporting missions and providing jobs to the world’s poor. 

Fair trade is a rapidly growing industry where companies like the Mennonite-run Ten Thousand Villages work directly with artisans in the developing world, offering better prices for handmade arts, crafts, and clothing. To be certified by the Fair Trade Federation, workers must earn enough to support their families, pay for education, and food. Fair-trade products must also be environmentally friendly and created under safe conditions, and the Western stores must commit to building long-term relationships with the workers.

I am a “compassionate capitalist.”

The business teaches poor/middle class how to file taxes. It’s meant as a check against corporations and rich folks getting all the breaks. It’s to level the playing field to the common person. Other capitalists who’ve seen this business model are entering the market. It works! 

In year two, we get enough customers to keep the business afloat. We level the playing field against corporations! Success! Now, any labor simply must come from overseas, paying as close to nothing as I can manage. The tax code change is good sort of! 

I don’t need new customers; the new tax code means they all have to come back for re-education! So, it works! People buy just enough to pay lobbyists, pay new accountants, keep website running, expand. I’ve made the world a better place, no doubt! The playing field between common folk & corporations is more leveled than before, surely! 

Until the next year. My business is gone, so money I paid to lobbyists to keep tax code frozen has dried up. Similar services offering tax education also dry up. Corporations pay a vastly smaller percentage of taxes than common folk.
