Hi Jacob, thanks for your thoughtful response. In terms of capitalism being the problem or not…I believe that capitalism has some good aspects and some very bad. The issue isn’t what we call the new economic model, it’s whether we can give it the right incentives and rewards to generate wellbeing. To be effective, there will need to be close oversight and penalties when people stray and forget that the point of business is to create societal wellbeing — not to create wealth for the owner — that should be the outcome of creating wellbeing.
