Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business eBook: Blaine Bartlett, David Meltzer: Amazon.ca: Kindle Store

Product Description Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. 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. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. From our perspective, business is nothing less than a spiritual discipline, it requires the same integrity, commitment, intentionality, courage, discipline, and compassion as any other spiritual discipline. 

It’s the honoring of this value-the ennobling of this value-that is called forth when we approach business as a spiritual undertaking. About the Author Blaine Bartlett is a thought leader, author, professor, and keynote speaker. Over a career spanning almost four decades he has had the opportunity to impact nearly a million individuals and has observed firsthand what business has done as well as recognizing what it is capable of providing. Blaine works internationally and regularly speaks to businesses, universities and global conferences on the future of business and leadership. Through his work and life he embodies the position that the future of business is making the future its business. 

David Meltzer is currently the CEO at Sports 1 Marketing, a global marketing agency he co-founded with Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon. As a Forbes Top Ten Keynote speaker and best-selling author Dave combines situational knowledge from his career and life journey and speaks internationally to Fortune 500 companies and top business conferences, prestigious universities, and sports seminars.

How to achieve a more compassionate capitalism: look back to medieval Cambridge

Legal advances created a lively property market; cutting-edge technologies improved water management and bridge-building; commodity trade expanded; and towns grew dramatically, both in number and size. Its focus was on local infrastructure and local wellbeing. City churches were financed by local people to meet the needs of local people. Their legacy remains with us today: the most valuable real estate in a modern city is often occupied by medieval churches and hospitals. Using recently discovered documents and novel statistical techniques, we have analysed the histories of over one thousand properties in medieval Cambridge over this period. 

Using evidence from the so-called ‘Second Domesday’ – the Hundred Rolls of 1279 – we show how wealth accumulated by successful businesses was recycled back into the community through support for local churches and hospitals and for itinerant preachers based in the town. Town government was devolved by the king and queen to the mayor and bailiffs, and they encouraged the development of guilds, which promoted cooperation. The business centre of Cambridge shifted south as the town expanded. ‘New wealth’ replaced ‘old wealth’ as a local commercial class replaced Norman aristocrats. Local pride and religious devotion – expressed through high levels of charitable giving – helped spread the economic benefits throughout the town community. This self-sustaining system was broken in the 1340s by the Black Death, the outbreak of the Hundred Years War and the punitive levels of taxation imposed on towns thereafter. 

When prosperity returned in the Tudor period, a more ruthless form of capitalism took root, and it is this ruthless form of capitalism whose legacy remains with us today.

One Man’s Quest To Make Medical Technology Affordable To All

One Man’s Quest To Make Medical Technology Affordable To All : Shots – Health News David Green says capitalism practiced with empathy is the right way to make health care available to the masses. The social entrepreneur is working on medical devices and services that can make a difference in the developing world. David Green is a man on a mission to drive down the cost of medical devices and health services. I caught up with Green at a company he is launching in Chicago that’s taking on the high cost of hearing aids. He’s demonstrating how to program his company’s new hearing device on a cellphone. 

He has helped create Sound World Solutions to market a new high-quality hearing device developed by his partner, Stavros Basseas. My competitive juices get flowing when I start to think about a big, $4 billion medical device company and how I’m going to beat them. The device, which we reported on yesterday, will be sold in the U.S. But the main market will be in developing countries, where it will sell for a couple hundred dollars – a fraction of the cost of high-end hearing aids. Green says his strategy is to minimize the cost of technology, production and distribution so he can push prices to the lowest possible level and force other companies to compete. 

The most notable may be a company named Aurolab in India that manufactures intraocular lenses. Through Aurolab, Green helped drive down the price of the lenses from several hundred dollars apiece to $2 now. Green has also set up eye-care programs in countries from Nepal to Kenya, created less expensive testing for people with diabetes, and helped set up social investing funds.

Interview with “Compassionate Capitalist” Dr. Charlotte di Vita MBE

People Are Less Selfish Under Capitalism Especially Compared to Socialism

My student described how exasperated she felt hearing the claim that capitalism leads to a survival of the fittest mentality. Among broad segments of society, the belief that capitalism teaches us to be so self-interested that we become uncaring about the welfare of others seems to be accepted as truth. Relative to any reasonable frame of reference, modern human societies are generous, peaceful, compassionate, and continually improving. We can only be considered selfish and violent in comparison to a utopian society in which no violence or cruelty takes place-a somewhat unfair comparison considering that there is no evidence of such a society as ever existed. Utopias may be imagined to be more altruistic than capitalist societies, but capitalist societies are more generous than real-world collectivist societies. 

Contrary to collectivism, capitalism widens our circle of compassion to include strangers. The evolution of capitalism has been in the direction of more trust and transparency, and less self-serving behavior; not coincidentally, this evolution has brought with it greater productivity and economic growth. Trust had been the product only of a personal relationship-I trust this guy because I know him-rather than a more general assumption upon which you could do business. The real triumph of capitalism in the 19th and 20th centuries was that trust was woven into the basic fabric of everyday business. The rise in altruism that Marsh observes has occurred concurrently with the rise of capitalism. 

To do business, we learn to trust strangers and to be trustworthy to strangers. The more capitalism, the more compassion and altruism towards strangers.

Wag Tags and compassionate capitalism

Wag Tags are a pretty ingenious invention – a noise-free, virtually un-losable dog tag with more room for text than a standard tag. They are a bar of text, with enough room to fit phone numbers, emails, twitter handles, addresses, or whatever other information would be best to get your dog back home if he gets lost, that threads onto your dog’s standard collar. They achieve this through their donation matching program where Wag Tags matches $1 for every $2 donated to any of the approved shelters. With a great product and an admirable goal – this is the kind of business we love to see!

Compassionate Capitalism by Rich DeVos, Rich Devos |, Paperback

Compassionate capitalism? How could that be? Doesn’t “Capitalism” mean “Dog-eat-dog, law of the jungle, every person for himself”? Rich DeVos, co-founder and former president of Amway, responds to this hard-nosed approach with a resounding “No.” He offers more than a vision in this extraordinary book. A plan that has made him one of America’s richest men, and that has made Amway one of the great corporate success stories of our time. Compassionate Capitalism spells out clearly and eloquently the guiding principles and concrete steps to making your life and your world better. Rich DeVos shows how your energy, your ambition, and your spirit of enterprise can travel together down a path in which the spirit of capitalism and moral values inextricably merge. Interweaving his own amazing story with vivid personal histories of men and women around the world, Rich DeVos illustrates both how success is achieved and what it truly means. He demonstrates that compassionate capitalism is the only solution to the most crucial issues of our time, and to the many other challenges that face us in the closing decade of this century and in the beginning of the next.

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

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

Entrepreneurs + Investors + Funded Innovation + Generational Wealth + Compassionate Capitalism

History has shown that the Greatest Wealth is Created through Entrepreneurism. Every Innovation that improves our lives came from an Entrepreneur with an idea; a strategy to succeed; and the funding to execute. The Good News: You don’t have to start a great company when you can invest in a great company and reap the same rewards as the founders. Recent regulatory changes have made that easier than ever to happen. We help Entrepreneurs and Investors create their legacy in the innovation they bring to market and the generational wealth they create. The men and women who take the road less traveled and invest in exciting private companies before they go public, have the opportunity that few realize – create wealth, leave a legacy of innovation, and have personal pride in knowing they impacted their community with new jobs and opportunities.

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

Compassionate Capitalism Is Possible Through Effective Corporate Philanthropy

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

Ray Kurzweil is an inventor, thinker, and futurist famous for forecasting the pace of technology and predicting the world of tomorrow. In this video, Kurzweil suggests there is more consensus about what kind of economic system we all want than it seems. People disagree on the details, he says, but across the political spectrum most agree we should balance the innovative power of capitalism with a basic compassion for people. He believes information technologies will drive further increases in wealth, and we’ll be able to afford a stronger social safety net in the future. This will dramatically change what we do for work and why.

Capitalism and compassion: a test of Milbrath’s environmental theory

From his observations of environmentalists Milbrath extracts the generalization that there is something inimical between capitalism and compassion. This was tested by applying scales of altruistic compassion and materialistic achievement motivation to supporters of three political parties in Queensland, Australia: a Leftist party, a moderate Conservative party and a Rightist party much given to advocating capitalism. Voters for the Rightist and Leftist parties showed a difference in compassion of only borderline significance. It is concluded that there are many roads to compassion, capitalism not excepted.

It is a crude idea, but could crime such as rape be a by-product of capitalism? Imagine a company that wants to sell Widgets – they need to advertise their product,- they use hot babes in skimpy bikinis to do so,- a lonely man stumbles upon a commercial for the Widgets and he is affected by the sexual images,- he has no means of sexual relief,- he attacks an innocent woman.

Why Capitalism Needs Conscious Leadership

While those and other frameworks have focused on reinventing capitalism by shifting business strategy, accounting principles and operational standards, a new movement called conscious capitalism offers a holistic approach that puts people and moral conscience at the center of business practices. I recently had the opportunity to learn more about conscious capitalism’s four tenets at the daylong convening HigherPurpose17 hosted by the Conscious Capitalism Bay Area Chapter. More than hearing from inspiring business leaders who provide proof that business can be a force for good, I learned that conscious capitalism doesn’t have to be an oxymoron. Of the framework’s four tenets – higher purpose, conscious leadership, conscious culture and stakeholder orientation – connecting to a higher purpose is perhaps the most pivotal to build an awakened business. It may go without saying that a conscious company is led by conscious leaders. That’s why conscious leadership must be intentional. The first step in achieving conscious leadership is self-awareness. Conscious leaders are able to recognize when and how to let go of fear and ego, and learn to connect with others from a place of compassion and authentic presence. Being able to shift from the ‘drama triangle’ to presence means being a more conscious leader. The self-awareness that comes with conscious leadership duly creates conscious workplace cultures that enable employees to thrive. Those financial returns would not be possible without a strong foundation of conscious leadership. Conscious capitalism aspires to change our current sad business narrative from the inside out.

Compassionate Capitalism! – Late Night Health Radio

Having gone from rags to riches to rags to riches, all before celebrating his 50th birthday, Dave Meltzer, who is also known as the entrepreneur’s entrepreneur, has enjoyed careers spanning technology, sports marketing, media and entertainment, and publishing. After losing it all in 2008, Dave determined that the missing ingredient in his prior success was gratitude. Today, as the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, the firm he co-founded with Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon, his weekly all-hands staff meetings focus on four key traits: empathy, accountability, effective communication, and gratitude. In his first best-seller, Connected To Goodness, 2014, Dave reveals his proven principles for success that will bring his readers the same peace and balance he now enjoys in both business and in life. His newest release, Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business, in 2016, which he co-authored with Blaine Bartlett, delves into the flaws of traditional capitalism. Not only do the authors point out the flaws and successes of the world’s main economic driver, they suggest a new way to conduct business. Compassionate Capitalism will change the way you look at business, so the things you look at change! Late Night Health’s Mark Alyn found the discussion with Dave to be inciteful, inspirational, and actionable. By the way, Dave just launched a podcast with Entrepreneur Magazine called “The Playbook.” This podcast focuses on the minds behind sports and sports business. From owners of teams to athletes on the field, this podcast will showcase the innovators and entrepreneurs of sports.

Having gone from rags to riches to rags to riches, all before celebrating his 50th birthday, Dave Meltzer, who is also known as the entrepreneur’s entrepreneur, has enjoyed careers spanning technology, sports marketing, media and entertainment, and publishing. After losing it all in 2008, Dave determined that the missing ingredient in his prior success was gratitude. Today, as the CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, the firm he co-founded with Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon, his weekly all-hands staff meetings focus on four key traits: empathy, accountability, effective communication, and gratitude. In his first best-seller, Connected To Goodness, 2014, Dave reveals his proven principles for success that will bring his readers the same peace and balance he now enjoys in both business and in life. His newest release, Compassionate Capitalism: A Journey to the Soul of Business, in 2016, which he co-authored with Blaine Bartlett, delves into the flaws of traditional capitalism. Not only do the authors point out the flaws and successes of the world’s main economic driver, they suggest a new way to conduct business. Compassionate Capitalism will change the way you look at business, so the things you look at change! Late Night Health’s Mark Alyn found the discussion with Dave to be inciteful, inspirational, and actionable. By the way, Dave just launched a podcast with Entrepreneur Magazine called “The Playbook.” This podcast focuses on the minds behind sports and sports business. From owners of teams to athletes on the field, this podcast will showcase the innovators and entrepreneurs of sports.

Can Capitalism and Compassion Co-Exist?

Maybe it’s because winning in business normally requires a team effort, and I like working in a team setting. What I have learned over the years is that capitalism and compassion can co-exist and that – gasp! – business can be a force for good. I personally know a great many smart and good-hearted business leaders in the Colorado community. Some of the very best people I know are CEOs, business owners, and entrepreneurs. They care about their employees and the people in their communities a great deal. What organization should we support? How can my employees get involved? How much time will this require? Will our involvement send the wrong signal to my employees, shareholders, customers, or partners? Zunesis employees have worked diligently to build homes for hard working families in the Denver community. Each year we do a build day where we all put on hard hats and work together to help construct the home we are sponsoring that year – “The Zunesis home.” This engagement has served as a very practical way for my small business to give back and support our neighbors in our own community. Seeing the lives of hard working families in our community completely changed by having a secure, safe, and stable place that they call home is something that never loses its luster or excitement. Being part of something that transcends success in business and tangibly blesses people in our community has been good for my employees and our business. I’m guessing that many business leaders and CEOs also want to get involved in supporting their communities, but they may not know how to get started.

Socialism Makes People Selfish

Forget compassionate capitalism, just some fairness will do

Saving Capitalism by Robert Reich could have ended up being the usual rant against the excesses of capitalism and capitalists. Osvald Bjelland founded and runs Xynteo, an Oslo-based consulting firm that advises companies on how doing good for society can be good for their bottom lines as well. As a serial entrepreneur who sold an earlier start-up to Citibank, it does sound strange for him to be critical of the capitalist system. Finally, over the weekend, N.R. Narayana Murthy, co-founder of Infosys, one of India’s most influential entrepreneurs and a poster boy for how capitalism can spawn a thousand millionaires, led some of the company’s founders in abstaining from voting in favour of a board proposal to hike the salary of the company’s chief operating officer U.B. Pravin Rao by 35% to Rs12.5 crore. Murthy later clarified that the decision stemmed from their belief in compassionate capitalism and his remarks may well serve as a caution for companies not just in India but beyond as well: “I have always felt that every senior management person of an Indian corporation has to show self-restraint in his or her compensation and perquisites. This is necessary if we have to make compassionate capitalism acceptable to a majority of Indians who are poor. Without compassionate capitalism, this country cannot create jobs and solve the problem of poverty.” Reich is even more critical of the system that served the US and most of Western society for well over a century. “The threat to capitalism is no longer communism or fascism but a steady undermining of the trust modern societies need for growth and stability,” he writes. Before the current round of hand-wringing against capitalism took wing, the system did deliver incredible growth to all those countries that adopted Adam Smith’s laissez faire doctrine. In a country like India where for centuries, two meals a day was the ambition of millions, today people demand a share of the wealth they are helping create for the companies they work in. Now as more and more of those who may have been its biggest beneficiaries declare that it is broken, the need to fix it, is acquiring urgency. Perhaps it is too much to expect compassion from a system that is inherently Darwinian. We will settle for a fairer and more just arrangement.

Can compassionate capitalists really win?

Raj Sisodia, head of the Conscious Capitalism Institute, believes companies that focus on the bottom line, instead of on employees’ needs, will fall behind. After years of layoffs, cutbacks, and closures in the corporate sector, it’s hard to imagine that any competitive American company really puts the needs of its employees before its profits. Born in India, Sisodia was educated there and at Columbia University in New York, where he received his PhD, and he’s currently professor of marketing at Bentley University in Waltham, Mass. In May, Bentley will host the third annual international conference sponsored by the Conscious Capitalism Institute, of which Sisodia is chairman and co-founder. Conscious Capitalism is defined by four characteristics. The third element is conscious leadership, which is driven by purpose and by service to people, and not by power or by personal enrichment. The fourth is a conscious culture, which really embodies all of these elements: trust, caring, compassion, and authenticity. Those two CEOs said first of all, “We are not going to lay off anybody. That’s number one. Second, we are going to protect the weakest within the system, which are the part-time workers. They will not be asked to take any kind of pay cut, any kind of benefit deduction, or even reduction in their hours, because they are the most vulnerable in the system. And then all the salaried people will take an across-the-board pay freeze, or even a pay reduction.” The sacrifice was shared equally between the people who could most afford to do it, and the weakest were protected. It’s not a drastic choice anymore between Communism and capitalism; everybody believes in free markets and free people. The question is how do we refine it? How do we create the best possible kind of free markets and free people? Beyond that, the median age crossed 40 for the first time in 1989. If you look at what happens to people as they age, mid-life and beyond, it’s not so much about, “How much can I accumulate?” and “What’s in it for me?” They start asking questions about meaning and purpose and legacy. If you go back 150 years, slavery was acceptable to most people. People are migrating, when they have a choice, to businesses that do offer meaning and purpose and a positive impact all around.

Enlightened Capitalism Questions and Answers, Dialogs

Swami Vivekananda’s quote: Karma Yoga is a method of purifying the mind through work. Question: Under capitalism, the goal of businesses is “Profit”, make money, sometimes at any cost. If the goal is therefore profit, would karma yoga lead to complacent approach? It is possible to be enormously successful in business and enormously wealth only when our practices are enlightened, which means, we employ basic principles of karma yoga in our work, which ensures that we gain not only financially but also, along with it, through more joy, peace and fulfillment for ourselves and also the people in our organization?and, ultimately, also our clients and society as a whole. Question: There is a certain pleasure in success, especially when a business thrives and does better than competition. It is natural that success will produce joy and an enlightened life does not mean we should reject success or be afraid of enjoying the fruits of success. An enlightened life means that we recognize that success and failure are natural outcomes in any activity and while we long for success, we need to accept the possibility of failure and be prepared for it. Success comes to those who don?t lose heart, and those who keep trying and never give up. Another thing to remember is that there is joy in doing the work itself in the spirit of karma yoga. An enlightened capitalist will eventually rise above the success/failure cycle natural to any business enterprise, and find greater meaning and fulfillment in doing the right work in a right manner for the right reason. Question: What is the most practical way, at individual level and at organization level, to apply karma yoga to improve and gain success? Applying the basic principles of karma yoga to gain success will require a firm conviction in the powers of goodness. For a long-term success, honesty and moral practices in business alone prove productive. Question: Does karma yoga require businesses to redefine success? If success is measured in terms of all these things, and not simply in terms of wealth, then one’s life becomes more meaningful.

Ecology and the Pathology of Capitalism

There is growing conflict between capitalism and the planet’s ecology, its essential life support systems. The booted foot of capitalism is pressing upon the throat of democracy. Virtually all of the social upheaval, inequality, and environmental problems of today in some way ensue from capitalism, including overpopulation and armed aggression. Capitalism requires continuous economic expansion and a burgeoning market for consumers. Democracy cannot flourish in the sterile soil that capitalism leaves in its wake. Either we have democracy or we have capitalism, or we create something entirely different. The brainchild of Adam Smith, capitalism, which replaced feudalism during the French Revolution, is founded upon demonstrably false premises, many of which were unknown in Smith’s time. Classically-trained economists assert that capitalism is a primal force of nature rather than the defective human construct that it is. Modern capitalism has produced pathological symptoms and endorsed an ethos that is antithetical to life and to liberty. Ethical considerations aside, and speaking purely from a biological perspective, one may emphatically state that modern capitalism is an aggressive cancer that is devouring its host. The continuation of capitalism as the primary political economy can have one of two possible outcomes: the virtual destruction of the biosphere, meaning the death of the host organism, or the abolition of the capitalist system. Global capitalism, with its dependence on the availability of cheap fossil fuels and petrochemicals for food production, must give way to small-scale local economies and organic agriculture. Existing alternatives to capitalism, such as Spain’s Mondragon Worker Cooperative, must be critically analyzed and evaluated as a model that could, with modifications, be implemented elsewhere. The egalitarian societies of the future will look radically different from the capitalism of today. Rather than the callous competition and exploitation nurtured by capitalism, communities can be organized around the principle of cooperation and social need.
