WHAT IS CONSCIOUS CAPITALISM?

John Mackey, along with co-author Raj Sisodia, business professor and co-founder of the Conscious Capitalism Institute, lays out a bold blueprint for capitalism in their fresh, new book: Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business.

Free enterprise capitalism has been the most powerful creative system of social cooperation and human progress ever conceived, but its perception and its role in society have been distorted. Now is the time to demonstrate to a skeptical world the truth, goodness and heroism of capitalism rather than perpetuate the false stigmas of selfishness, greed and profit maximization. We must revolutionize capitalism and show that businesses are the greatest value creators of all, with the power to push humanity upward for continuous improvement. Here, John talks about the unique opportunity businesses have to unleash creativity. (From John Mackey’s blog.)

Mackey will speak at 7 pm on Thursday, January 31, at Unity Temple on the Plaza, 707 W. 47th Street, Kansas City, MO. See Rainy Day Books for ticket information.
