Business and capitalism are the greatest creators of value in the world. Capitalism can be the source for good when it is based on benevolence or it can be irresponsible and destructive to planet Earth if it is based on anti-consciousness and greed. Unfortunately, the current capitalism structure has placed enormous strain on the planet. The pressure to sustain a flourishing business in today’s wildly chaotic and frantic economic environment falls on the individual leader.
Making decisions and taking action have become more complex for business leaders in all industries and in all markets. We can no longer think that social, economic or environmental problems are irrelevant or not their concern.
Unless we choose to function from benevolent capitalism and from what it would take to create more in the world for everybody, not just ourselves, eventually we are going to use up the planets’ resources, we are not going to create a sustainable future, nor a sustainable planet.
