capitalism

A Quote by Patricia Aburdene on capitalism, business, and conscious capitalism

We've now become conscious of the uncalculated social, economic, and environmental costs of that kind of "unconscious" capitalism. And many are beginning to practice a form of "conscious capitalism," which involves integrity and higher standards, and in which companies are responsible not just to shareholders, but also to employees, consumers, suppliers, and communities. Some call it "stakeholder capitalism."

A Quote by Fred Kofman on business, capitalism, conscious capitalism, and free market

The only way to enter the market is with helping hands. The voluntary exchange  of goods and services is a mechanism that rewards those who are ready to serve their fellow men. Contrary to all pseudo-spiritual, socialist and fascist arguments, the marketplace is a space of freedom where human beings can cooperate in a spirit of mutuality. Whoever enriches himself (legitimately) in the market is someone who offers goods and services that are appreciated by those who buy them.

We're all afloat in a boundless sea, and the way we cope is by massing together in groups and pretending in unison that the situation is other than it is.  We reinforce the illusion for each other.  That's what a society really is, a little band of humanity huddled together against the specter of a pitch black sea.  Everyone is treading water to keep their heads above the surface even though they have no reason to believe that the life they're preserving is better than the alternative they're avoiding.  It's just that one is known and one is not.  Fear of the unknown is what keeps everyone busily treading water.  All fear is fear of the unknown.  If someone in such a group of water-treaders betrays the group lie by speaking the truth of their situation, that person is called a heretic, and society reserves its most awful punishments for heretics.  If someone decides to stop struggling and just sink or float away, every possible effort is made to stop him, not for the benefit of the individual, but for the benefit of the group.  To deny at all costs the truth of the situation.

A Quote by Benito Mussolini on fascism, corporations, capitalism, and government

Fascism should be more properly be called corporatism, since it is the merger of state and corporate power.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on commerce, capitalism, service, and business

There are those who see the free market as an enemy. But the market is an invaluable instrument for human development. Every act of commerce is an act of mutual service. Even though it can be motivated by personal interest, the market system channels that selfish energy towards assisting others.

A Quote by Paul Hawken on business, capitalism, and natural capitalism

Natural capitalism is not about making sudden changes, uprooting institutions, or fomenting upheaval for a new social order. Natural capitalism is about making small, critical choices that can tip economic and social factors in positive ways.

A Quote by Karl Marx on capitalism

Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks.

A Quote by John Naisbitt on entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship, capitalism, and economy

...countries don't create economies. It is entrepreneurs and companies that create and revitalize economies. The role of the governments should be to create a nourishing environment for entrepreneurs and companies to flourish, not to get in the way of economic development.

A Quote by Patricia Aburdene on capitalism, conscious capitalism, social enterprise, and nobel prize

Welcome to the Dawn of Conscious Capitalism--a popular, decentralized, broad-based crusade to heal the excesses of capitalism with transcendent human values. Every day Conscious Capitalism wins new converts in the paneled boardrooms of global business.... Equally important, the actions millions of us take, "from the supermarket to the stock market," are drafting a more wholistic brand of free enterprise which will forever outshine the Chicago School--and win someone somewhere a brand-new Nobel Prize.
