Organizations Funded by George Soros and His Open Society Foundations

The lower portion of the page focuses on organizations which do not receive direct funding from Soros and OSF, but which receive money from one or more groups that do get direct OSF funding. Organizations that, in recent years, have received direct funding and assistance from George Soros and his Open Society Foundations include the following. America Votes: Soros also played a major role in creating this group, whose get-out-the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters. Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now: This group conducts voter mobilization drives on behalf of leftist Democrats. Human Rights First: This group supports open borders and the rights of illegal aliens; charges that the Patriot Act severely erodes Americans’ civil liberties; has filed amicus curiae briefs on behalf of terror suspect Jose Padilla; and deplores the Guantanamo Bay detention facilities. 

Joint Victory Campaign 2004: Founded by George Soros and Harold Ickes, this group was a major fundraising entity for Democrats during the 2004 election cycle. Media Fund: Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to conceptualize, produce, and place political ads on television, radio, print, and the Internet. Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund: This group advocates open borders, free college tuition for illegal aliens, lowered educational standards to accommodate Hispanics, and voting rights for criminals. National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy: This group depicts the United States as a nation in need of dramatic structural change financed by philanthropic organizations. National Lawyers Guild: This group promotes open borders; seeks to weaken America’s intelligence-gathering agencies; condemns the Patriot Act as an assault on civil liberties; rejects capitalism as an unviable economic system; has rushed to the defense of convicted terrorists and their abettors; and generally opposes all U.S. 

foreign policy positions, just as it did during the Cold War when it sided with the Soviets. Shadow Democratic Party: This is an elaborate network of non-profit activist groups organized by George Soros and others to mobilize resources – money, get-out-the-vote drives, campaign advertising, and policy iniatives – to elect Democratic candidates and guide the Democratic Party towards the left. These include organizations which do not receive direct funding from Soros and OSF, but which are funded by one or more organizations that do.

CAPITALISM IS OVER IF YOU WANT IT

In a city that is rapidly changing to cater to the one-percent at every level, Clarion Alley Mural Project is one of the last remaining truly punk venues in San Francisco, organized by a core and revolving group of individuals who have collectively volunteered tens of thousands of hours throughout its history over the past 21 years. As part of CAMP’s mission to be a force for those who are marginalized and a place where culture and dignity speak louder than the rules of private property or a lifestyle that puts profit before compassion, respect, and social/economic/environmental justice, CAMP artists/organizers Megan Wilson, Christopher Statton, and Mike Reger have just completed Clarion Alley Mural Project’s Wall of Shame and Solutions to address the current crisis of displacement and the dismantling of our city’s historic culture. Wilson herself was evicted in 2008 through the Ellis Act from her home of 13 years. In 2013 she was evicted from her studio at 340 Bryant Street, along with 150 other artists, by developer Joy Ou of Group i to make way for new tech offices. 340 Bryant Street was one of the last remaining affordable industrial spaces for artists’ studios in San Francisco. San Francisco is experiencing a massive displacement of its residents, its communities, and its diverse culture – as the high tech industry and its workers continue to move into our City and to recruit more and more of its employees from outside of the Bay Area. 

High numbers of foreigners are buying up property in San Francisco as second or third homes, contributing to the shortage of affordable housing. Those being forced out of their homes and neighborhoods include longtime residents, local businesses, and non-profit social service and arts organizations – agencies that act as integral parts to the neighborhoods they live in and serve. It’s been truly heartbreaking to watch so many people who have spent many years creating and contributing to our communities be forced to leave because, while they have plenty of creativity, energy, and love for their neighborhoods, they don’t have enough money to keep their homes, small businesses, and community-based organizations. This is an epidemic rooted in a systemic war being forged by politicians and for-profit interests across the world. All eyes throughout the world are now on San Francisco and watching as the city that was once known for its progressive free-love counterculture is rapidly being dismantled by free-market capitalism on steroids.

Post-prohibition Cannabis Education for a Drug War Free World

Where does the legal cannabis industry fit, is the question at hand. In the U.S., cannabis culture comes from the 1960s, associated with two very particular forms of social movement: counterculture and the antiwar left. It’s even an open question whether it was the hippies or the soldiers that really brought cannabis consumption into Western culture, given the extent to which Vietnam soldiers and vets adopted cannabis use as way to cope with existing in the middle of a war that didn’t make sense as well as the trauma of living through it and coming home – yes, often with suitcases of hash and opium for entrepreneurial reasons. The existence of a cultural market for cannabis led, eventually, to the commercialization of that market when the U.S. government got the Mexican government to use Paraquat to eradicate the fields supplying urban veterans of the counterculture and foreign wars. 

That’s when the modern cannabis cultural economy was mixed, when producing cannabis for profit slid in – fairly easily – with the rural spaces inhabited by the remnants of the counterculture that were already hybridizing with rural values and people. This was an alliance that protected cannabis production and consumption for everyone, not just hippies, vets, and people that rejected the characterization of cannabis as a threat to society. The wave of legislation behind the creation of regulated cannabis markets has certainly crippled the prospects of total cannabis prohibition around the world. We are facing a split that was really there all along, between the value of those for whom cannabis markets are an end to themselves; and the value of cannabis markets as a means for creating a more just and peaceful world. Libertarian entrepreneurialism has a problem with over-regulation that constructs new barriers between the cannabis haves and have-nots, for different reasons than the progressive peaceniks. 

Corporate cannabis interests support artificial, non-market-derived barriers to protect their returns on investment, while progressive liberals support regulations to protect consumers and non-cannabis culture stakeholders whose support was necessary to accomplish legalization-with-prohibition. The realist in me says that regulated cannabis markets are likely to be dominated by the former value, exchange value, rather than other values like compassion and restorative justice. The cultural economy of cannabis is evolving, and we are too.

Capitalist or Communist?

It is a conditional capitalism, and certainly a compassionate capitalism. Shemittah, the Sabbatical year, was designed to allow the land to rest and regenerate. Six years the land would be worked, but in the seventh year it would rest and lie fallow. The agricultural cycle in the Holy Land imposed strict rules and regulations on the owner of the land. The owner could take some, but so could his workers, friends and neighbors. 

The landowner, in his own land, would have no more right than the stranger. For six years you own the property, but in the seventh you enjoy no special claims. The ten percent tithes, as well as the obligation to leave to the poor the unharvested corners of one’s field, the gleanings, and the forgotten sheaves are all part of the system of compassionate capitalism. If the land belongs to G‑d, then we have no exclusive ownership over it. G‑d bestows His blessings upon us, but clearly, the deal is that we must share. 

The Sabbatical year is one of many checks and balances that keep our capitalism kosherand kind. May you make lots of money, and encourage G‑d to keep showering you with His blessings by sharing it generously with others.

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 capitalist’ John Morgan has ‘no clue’ on indie run for governor

Morgan announced Friday he wouldn’t run as Democrat and would switch his voter registration to independent. He mentioned two Republican friends he says he often agrees with: Florida Senate President-designate Bill Galvano and House Speaker Richard Corcoran, though he specifically noted he differs with Corcoran’s support for charter schools. Morgan faulted Republicans for pushing a tax reform plan in Congress that Morgan says will benefit the rich and blow up the national debt.

The relationship between Christianity, freedom, and capitalism has been a subject of scholarly study for centuries. In this volume, John Robbins argues that political and economic freedom are the results of Biblical Christianity. Political freedom and capitalism arose in Northwestern Europe and North America after the Christian Reformation of the 16th Century, and they are unique in world history. The nations and peoples that heard and accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ as proclaimed by the Reformers quickly became free and prosperous on a scale previously unimaginable. Some historians and economists have denied any causal connection between Christianity, freedom, and capitalism, but they are able to deny this connection only by ignoring clear philosophical, economic, legal, sociological, and historical evidence demonstrating that Christianity is the source of capitalism. 

Laissez-faire capitalism, which is the only moral economic system, is in fact the economic system of Christianity. This is the topic for the 2008 Worldview Essay Contest. He has served as chief of staff for a Member of Congress, editor of The Freeman magazine, Economist for The Heritage Foundation, and Professor of Political Philosophy in The Freedom School.

‘Compassionate capitalism,’ another name for social entrepreneurship

Low has been leading the nonprofit organization that promotes social entrepreneurship. Low was in Seoul to attend and deliver a key note speech at Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017. Low: The vision of Social Innovation Park is to build a more inclusive, sustainable and mindful world by providing platforms for collaborations and partnerships. It has been around for 11 years now and given birth to some 100 social enterprises. Social entrepreneurs should be even more creative, even more innovative. 

Social entrepreneurs need to have compassion for everything. Another name for social entrepreneurship is compassionate capitalism. Low: In the short term, you use negative tax system and fiscal policies to address the income distribution gap. The bigger issue in question is how you cultivate a sense of self-reliance, a sense of mutual help and a sense of resilience within the current generation. Low: There are many medical-tech startups that are getting to the space. 

The company might not have started as a social enterprise, but it clearly has social missions itself. Low: Find the right person to spearhead. It’s very important – the person who is going to make the decisions.

Why students are attracted to Socialism and give capitalism an F?

As students most get attracted to the ideals of socialism and breathe by it. Post college and getting into a job/business, we move towards capitalism and breathe by it. Though few friends say they have moved from Capitalism to Socialism seeing the ruthless corporate world. BK Marcus reflects on this phenomenon of students giving capitalism an F:. Not only are young voters more likely to support Democrats than Republicans, they are also more likely to support the most left-wing Democrats. 

Capitalism was big business: McDonald’s, IBM, the military-industrial complex. There is little doubt that capitalism is associated with all evils of the world as socialism once was. In latter, we saw the politicians amassing huge wealth in the name of socialism and in former, it is the big corporates and finance guys who have done the same. In socialism the idea was govt would redistribute which failed. In capitalism it was market forces which were supposed to do the same but have been found equally wanting. 

According to Pastin, the highest-performing students were both more likely to be self-declared socialists and more likely to meet his proposal with outrage: grading, they argued, should be a matter of merit. Let’s say the class follows capitalism which selects on merit. This is what has been happening in world of capitalism for centuries now.

To Be Genuinely Compassionate, Politicians Should Focus on Job Creation, not Unemployment Benefits

The current debate about extending unemployment benefits is remarkable because certain politicians want to give people money on the condition that they don’t get a job. There is a problem with joblessness, to be sure, but it’s misguided to think that extending unemployment benefits is the compassionate response. The black unemployment rate is more than twice that of whites. We explain that more unemployment benefits is a misguided approach. The unemployed need a strong job market, not endless handouts that create dependency. 

If we are serious about keeping workers out of the long-term unemployment trap, we must have a debate about which policies cause unemployment and which policies create jobs. The column cites many of the academic studies showing that unemployment benefits lead to more joblessness. It doesn’t focus specifically on unemployment benefits, but it makes a great point about labor supply incentives. Big government is responsible for today’s unemployment situation. Since President Obama was elected, we have spent $560 billion on unemployment benefits. 

The United States enjoyed strong levels of job creation during both the Reagan and Clinton years. Well, as illustrated by this chart, they both presided over periods with impressive job creation.

Canadian Conservative Forum

I don’t think there is any question that globalization is of great benefit not only for Canada, but also for the entire world. The process of globalization creates an enviable playing field for economic growth by limiting the amount of trade barriers and opening up the free market. Many have written negative articles and books about globalization. William Greider of Rolling Stone threw everything and the kitchen sink against globalization. As a self-described libertarian conservative, I can think of no better option to follow other than globalization for three reasons. 

First, globalization will provide an equal opportunity, on a level playing field, for potential success. Second, globalization will open up the lines of international trade. Third, globalization will enhance the technological market. While not perfect, the technological boom has enhanced the future prospects of globalization. A typical attack on globalization by the left is that it looks out for the individual rather than the interests of the community. 

Globalization produces winners and losers, not a socialist communal fantasy of free money and protecting a country’s economy. Globalization opens up a whole new range of trading possibilities and free market activity.

Compassion International

Compassion International is a nonprofit organization founded in 1952 by Reverend Everett Swanson. Swanson felt driven to help South Korean children who were left orphaned due to the war. Today this organization aims to provide over 1.2 million children in twenty-six countries with food, shelter, education and health care, and Christian training. Although Compassion International began in South Korea, the idea caught the attention of other people and it began to spread throughout the world. Compassion International is funded by charitable donations that are tax deductible in the United States. 

Last year about 520 million dollars was donated to this charity, and of that 520 million, 80 % went towards program activities for the children. There are a few characteristics of Compassion International that makes them different from other nonprofit organizations. One characteristic is their commitment to the children. Their ministry is focused on each individual child and their needs. They work holistically with every child to focus on their spiritual, economic, social and physical needs. 

Another characteristic is their commitment to Christ. Compassion International believes that Jesus Christ is the heart of their ministry.

What is Marxism

Marxism is an economic and social system based upon the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. According to Marx a class is defined by the relations of its members to the means of production. He proclaimed that history is the chronology of class struggles, wars, and uprisings. Under capitalism, Marx continues, the workers, in order to support their families are paid a bare minimum wage or salary. The worker is alienated because he has no control over the labor or product which he produces. 

The capitalists sell the products produced by the workers at a proportional value as related to the labor involved. Surplus value is the difference between what the worker is paid and the price for which the product is sold. An increasing immiseration of the proletariat occurs as the result of economic recessions; these recessions result because the working class is unable to buy the full product of their labors and the ruling capitalists do not consume all of the surplus value. A proletariat or socialist revolution must occur, according to Marx, where the state is a dictatorship of the proletariat. Religion, according to Marx was the response to the pain of being alive, the response to earthly suffering.

Compassionate Capitalism – by Sanjiv Mehta at the #India2022Exchange

Sage launches Sage Foundation to lead social philanthropy

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.

How Individuals and Corporations Participate 02/15 by Karen Rands

Karen Rands, founder of the Compassionate Capitalist Movement for Angel Investors, talks with author Mark Faust, trusted advisor to Corporate Executive Teams and author of Growth or Bust and High Growth Levers, about how individuals and corporations use Compassionate Capitalism to create wealth and grow their business. As a nationally recognized expert on Angel Investing, Karen has written the best selling book Inside Secrets to Angel Investing as a step by step guide for learning how to invest in private companies to bring innovation to the market, create jobs and create wealth for all those involved – Compassionate Capitalism. She believes busy executives can effectively diversify their portfolio to invest in entrepreneurs as a wealth creation strategy, and enjoy the passion and excitment of an entrepreneurial endeavor without incurring all the risk and challenges of being an entrepreneur. Mark’s company, Echelon Management International, works with both leaders of successfully growing companies who want to raise the bar as well as with companies in turnaround. Mark has worked with and interviewed many Fortune 500 CEO’s, hundreds of number one sales performers, and thousands of his client’s top customers. 

From this experience and insight, he discovered a corporate version of Compassionate Capitalism that is part of the pattern for success for those companies and executives.

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.

what is compassionate capitalism? who advocated it?

He proposed that a company should contribute back to the community 1 percent of profits, 1 percent of equity, and 1 percent of employee hours. That means he would want a company to give away money, offer shares and provide employment or else voluntary work by the employees. For me, that diminishes his contribution to western economic thought because it suggests that there is some force governing his life that is not in tune with the majority of his fellow citizens. If companies paid decent wages, provided good employee care and produced high quality goods then Benioff’s ideas would be unnecessary. So long as big business treats its employees as “Labour resource”, seeks to pay minimum wages and ignores the needs of customers, Benioff will find followers. His ideas are out of sync with economic theory and policy.

Creative Capitalism = Compassionate Conservatism?

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…. This system, [capitalism], driven by self-interest is response for the incredible innovations that have improved so many lives. It’s always good to see an important person speak so highly and at such great length about the wonder working powers of market forces and describe “Self-interest” in such glowing terms. The whole “Creative capitalism” concept has a certain echo of “Compassionate conservatism,” which wound up being the worst of both worlds. Can Gates-style “Creative capitalism” avoid the same trap?

Explore Conscious Capitalism’s Philosophy

In 2005, John Mackey, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Whole Foods Market, and Michael Strong, founded an organization called FLOW to “Liberate the entrepreneurial spirit for good.” Conscious Capitalism was one of the programs that emerged from this endeavor and it soon became the primary focus of the organization. In 2010, the name of this organization was officially changed to Conscious Capitalism Incorporated – a non-profit with a purpose of advancing the integration of consciousness and capitalism. In 2009, Raj Sisodia and Shubhro Sen founded the Conscious Capitalism Institute to support the integration of Conscious Capitalism in business through research, education and development.

Compassionate Capitalism

Edward Ortiz Jr., in his Jan. 12 Letter responding to “Liberty Theology”, has the nature of capitalism backward. He says that “The idea of capitalism…demands that the individual be selfish.” More accurate is Friedrich Hayek’s observation that “Profit is the signal which tells us what we must do in order to serve people we do not know. By pursuing profit, we are as altruistic as we can possibly be, because we extend our concern to people who are beyond our range of personal conception.” The fundamental concerns of the church are fully compatible with this more profound understanding of how markets work.

Why Pope Francis wants us to stop worshipping capitalism

Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the U.S. next week is generating huge interest and expectation. Part of that excitement is rooted in the different tone the pope has taken on a number of issues, from marriage to the role of women in the church. He has also issued a tough critique of capitalism and called for more action on climate change. We kick off our coverage of the pope’s trip, which will continue all next week, with a look at those issues from our economics correspondent Paul Solman. It’s part of our weekly series Making Sense, which airs every Thursday on the NewsHour.

The Impact of Christianity

“Christianity is responsible for the way our society is organized and for the way we currently live. So extensive is the Christian contribution to our laws, our economics, our politics, our arts, our calendar, our holidays, and our moral and cultural priorities that historian J. M. Robers writes in The Triumph of the West, ‘We could none of us today be what we are if a handful of Jews nearly two thousand years ago had not believed that they had known a great teacher, seen him crucified, dead, and buried, and then rise again.'”. Christian missionaries were a major influence in stopping these century-old practices and ideas. According to historian Glenn Sunshine in his book Why You Think the Way You do, “Christians were the first people in history to oppose slavery systematically. Early Christians purchased slaves in the markets simply to set them free.” It is also true that slavery was ended in great measure by Christian activists. Two-thirds of the members of the American abolition society in 1835 were Christian ministers. While there are good charitable efforts outside of the name of Jesus, Kennedy and Newcombe argue that Christian charities stand out. Many of the world’s languages were first set to writing by Christian missionaries in order for people to read the Bible. While America’s constitutional government is not specifically Christian, it can be argued that its roots are taken from biblical doctrines. “Here we see, in its embryo, the idea of limited government. This idea derives from the Christian notion that the ruler’s realm is circumscribed and there are limits beyond which he simply must not go….Our modern idea of limited government takes the Christian notion of space that is off-limits to state control and extends it to the whole private sphere….The separation of the realms should not be a weapon against Christianity; rather, it is a device supplied by Christianity to promote social peace, religious freedom, and a moral community. If we recovered the concept in its true sense, our society would be better off.” Capitalism satisfied the Christian demand for an institution that channels selfish human desire toward the betterment of society. The Christian faith has influenced literature in such Christian writers such as Dante, Chaucer, Donne, Dostoevsky, Shakespeare, Dickens, Milton, etc. While much modern art seems to debase the human spirit, classical Christian art tries to bring out the best of mankind-pointing us to a higher plane. “In every case in which Christians are blamed for violence, a closer look largely exonerates Christians.

Awakening Compassion at Work, by Immanual Joseph

Immanual Joseph interviewed Jane and Monica on their lessons from decades long research on workplace compassion, and their new book Awakening Compassion at Work. The book is grounded in compassion in organizations research, and it really tries to make that research accessible to people who want to change their own organizations and create more compassion in their own work lives. MW: One more reason that I think we don’t associate compassion and work sometimes is that when you ask people about compassion in the workplace, they may be may be thinking about really grand scale moves. Maybe they’re thinking about whether their organization has compassion training or a chief compassion officer or something like that that’s very formal. One of the important things that happens to people in the course of their careers often is that they encountered some kind of significant pain or suffering and they receive compassion from unexpected sources and they realize that this compassion that they have received has been so important and that’s in fact they need to challenge those fears and beliefs that they’re holding until they may significantly change their outlook over time to become more open to the importance of compassion. JD: I think our belief is that part of the problem with having people recognize the value of compassion is that there’s much more articulation of the cost and the fear of compassion as opposed to articulation and appreciation of the benefits of compassion. So one point I want to make is that I think we focus a lot more on potential downside of compassion and we don’t feel fully recognize the full spectrum of the benefits to compassion. MW: For any person taking stock of compassion in their work life they can ask themselves to think the last time they experienced compassion in their work. Just calling to mind and sharing of stories of giving receiving and witnessing compassion are really powerful ways of taking stock of where compassion is around you and your work and of actually building it and sharing it by remembering the story and reminding yourself of the presence of compassion. IJ: What do you think of incentivizing compassion in the workplace? Larger organizations are capable of highlighting and rewarding compassion, and have formal programs around compassion. MW: A lot of the symbolic things that organizations can do like naming a role Chief Compassion Officer are really important signals that the organization values compassion. Leaders can be modeling compassion as they lead, or not modeling compassion as they lead. That is as a powerful form of modeling for the rest of the organization’s about what’s valued and what’s appropriate and what’s going to be supported.

Inside Secrets to Angel Investing and Compassionate Capitalism

Conscious Capitalism Definition

A way of thinking about capitalism and business that better reflects the current state of the world and the potential of business to make a positive impact on it. The concept of Conscious Capitalism was popularized by John Mackey, Whole Foods cofounder and co-CEO; and Raj Sisodia, professor of marketing at Bentley University, through their book Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business. Mackey and Sisodia are also the cofounders of the nonprofit organization Conscious Capitalism, Inc., which has local chapters in 18 U.S. cities nationwide, as well as eight other countries. The principles of Conscious Capitalism have been adopted by a growing number of companies including Whole Foods Market, Starbucks, Container Store and Trader Joe’s. The Conscious Capitalism credo acknowledges that while free market capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived, people can aspire to even more. It builds on the core foundations of capitalism such as voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade and the rule of law, by adding elements like trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation. Conscious Capitalism does not abjure the pursuit of profit, but emphasizes doing so in a manner that integrates the interests of all major stakeholders in a company. Towards this objective, Conscious Capitalism is based on the following four guiding principles -. Higher Purpose: A conscious business focuses on a purpose beyond pure profits, and in doing so, inspires and engages its stakeholders. A conscious business will focus on the whole business ecosystem in order to create and optimize value for all of its stakeholders. Conscious Leadership: Conscious leaders emphasize “We” rather than “Me” to drive the business, and strive to cultivate a culture of Conscious Capitalism in the enterprise. Conscious Culture: Corporate culture is the sum of the values and principles that constitute the social and moral fabric of a business; a conscious culture is one where the principles of Conscious Capitalism permeate the enterprise, fostering a spirit of trust and cooperation between all stakeholders.

These consequences are at the heart of Daniel Golemans timely new book, Social Intelligence. Innocently beginning as an expos of social neuroscience the new science of human ecology Golemans book. Similar to sociobiology, a framework introduced by E. O. Wilson in 1975, social neuroscience examines the interplay between universal, adapted physiology and social organization, emphasizing but not restricted to human ecology. In the past, this was the domain of social psychology, but with the advent of neuroimaging technology, we can now explore the inner workings of the mind while it processes social information, such as ideas about what others are thinking and doing. The high/low metaphor is also useful for framing social intelligence, which Goleman characterizes as a combination of social awareness and social facility. Although social intelligence is governed by adapted physiology, Goleman is careful to avoid the pitfall of genetic determinism. At the individual level, we can apply the principles of social neuroscience to everyday life, cultivating social awareness and facility at home and work. If we know, for example, that population density decreases educational opportunity, or that excessive work-hours increases anxiety and in turn long-term health consequences, we can obviate these problems by developing social neuroscientifically informed public policiesin other words, social neuroscience is a vehicle for euthenics. To be sure, one of the most important themes of Golemans book is how to restructure social institutions, such as hospitals and businesses, so they do not clash with human nature. Assuming, along with Goleman and Weinberg, that there is a link between economic models and everyday life, between the mantra of perpetual growth and ever-increasing social stratification and iniquity, then clearly we have a major problem on our hands. So whats to be done? Now that neuroscience can put numbers to that raw buzz of fellow feeling, quantifying its benefits, writes Goleman, we must pay attention to the biological impact of social life. Despite its many shortcomings and oversimplifications, Social Intelligence contains the seeds for social reform.

The New Capitalism: The Greater the Compassion, the Greater the Profit Bob Murray* and Alicia Fortinberry* An organization not showing compassion, that does not look to what its workers really need in terms of their basic psychological drivers, will never get the support needed for cost containment or any major strategic initiative. On top of that is a massive disengagement and alienation that prevents people from working at their best or even, particularly in the case of clever Gen Y people, from wanting to work for these organizations at all. 43 not believe that these businesses care about them, they do not trust the leadership and they want more out of life than just working to make other people, especially Fortune 500 CEOs and shareholders, rich. XVI, No. 2, 2013 general definition is to look at the four main reasons why people come to work in the first place. To Relate: People work for the same reason they join clubs or associations(Maslow, 1998), in order to form a social grouping with other human beings and avoid isolation. So people come to work to learn, to prevent mental decay. As relationships at work become more solid, the desire to defend widens to include the team at work and, by extension, the organization. According to new research, the move towards working from home, though generally supported by many workers, may in the end lead to more social isolation and more stress. Many in fact confess to us that not only do they fail to give adequate recognition at work more often than not, they withhold it from their families. These are the very people whose hands are on the tiller and whose brains need to be working most strategically and innovatively! Compassionate capitalism would do well to begin with establishing a multidirectional culture of praise. People will work hard for a while under threat, but overall they do their best when they feel safe and supported. 7 An organization not showing compassion, that does not look to what its workers really need in terms of their basic psychological drivers, will never get the support needed for cost containment or any major strategic initiative.

Mother Teresa’s Ferrari

What if Mother Teresa drove a Ferrari? That’s the premise of an essay by D. A. Wallach to support his claim that compassionate capitalism is a scam. I’ve thought a great deal about compassionate capitalism and its many synonyms, what it means and how we who are critical of it ought to respond. If your goal is to galvanize the public into action, to provoke them into opposition to, for example, compassionate capitalism, the surest way is to frame your argument to appeal to values that are widely held among your audience. If compassionate capitalism contravenes these values, it will presumably generate outrage, calls for reform, boycotts, and other forms of activism, and you as a writer can feel good knowing that you are making a difference. If you as an opponent of compassionate capitalism can identify an obvious value among the public that would encourage their opposition, you can be fairly certain that proponents of compassionate capitalism have also identified it, and are well prepared with counter arguments. Compassionate capitalists have a response at the ready: doesn’t this social convention limit the amount of good that can be done in the world? Does it really make sense to be more forgiving of someone who bought a Ferrari through stock market speculation than someone who did it by giving millions to the poor? Only a theologian would suggest otherwise. The rhetoric of compassionate capitalism seeks to remove the traditional wall between altruism and egotism, allowing non-profits to become more like conventional businesses without hurting their “Brand equity” as charitable endeavors. What’s interesting about this is that it’s a generic statement about how capitalism works, but it’s invoked as if it’s a distinctive feature of compassionate capitalism. The emphasis on greed mischaracterizes the nature of capitalism, and in an abstract debate about whether capitalism is good or not, it would be rejected by its defenders as inaccurate and unfair. The socially conscious entrepreneur concedes this caricature and then claims “But I have created a new, more compassionate version!” And what is this new version? Simply capitalism as it has always been practiced, but now with an aura of virtue and progress for seeming to have reformed itself. Compassionate capitalism moves us backwards. Even if its philanthropic efforts are genuine and sincere, capitalism practiced out of compassion is worse than the self-interested version because it weakens our ability to address the root causes of pressing social problems.

Some exceptional governments have adopted public policies that have alleviated the economic disparity in their communities by combining strategies and ideologies from two diverse political systems: capitalism and socialism. The information used for the study is based on the most recent international reports and global circumstances of the international economic system; it is focused on global wealth distribution, income distribution, economic growth and development and the social patterns associated with them. 3.1 The concepts: Economic Growth and Development Every nation in the world seeks to create, promote, and improve social development for their societies. Economic growth may im mply improvem ment in humann developmentt as well, but m mainly under ciircumstances where w economic income is resoourcefully channneled into groowth of humann welfare. If we look at the scoppe of this economic theory on a smaller scalle, we see how w capitalism prromotes the huuge economic disparity betw ween rich and poor people. On the one hand, they can have great assets in terms of productivity and/or economic efficiency – bringing them closer to the northern scale – while, on the other hand, they face other vulnerability factors, which causes them to remain significantly behind the north, and therefore, more related to the underdeveloped world. The world has resorted to a co-dependent, cyclical economic structure that only “Works” in terms of domination – subordination co-relations. Demographic explosion, mass migration, and ageing are direct consequences of capitalism, and they empower economic inequality. What capitalism once reaped as human benefits are now becoming the critical dilemmas that must be solved in order to allow the economic system to survive. 2, No. 4; 2017 why we insist on the imperative necessity for economic intervention from the state: it is the only way to diminish corporate power and cause compassionate capitalism to flourish. In the wake of the 21st century, Tobin´s proposal was again taken up by those against free trade and globalization, referring to it as a feasible alternative for driving development, alleviating economic scarcity and global income distribution disparity. At the same time, the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean backed the idea of a global financial and/or monetary transaction taxation, which would begin profoundly reforming the international financial system and its institutions, diminishing financial vulnerability and maintaining stability.
