The book offers perspectives from two distinct intellectual domains: social science and philosophy.
Scholars in social science (including economics, management, and sociology) tend to study performance.
Ideas of progress, on the other hand, tend to fall more under the purview of philosophers (in particular social and political philosophers).
Further, to obtain an insider's view on practice and possibilities, the volume includes essays from a handful of thoughtful business leaders.

Description

Details

The prevailing aspiration of business is performance, while that of society is progress. Capitalism, both the paradigm and practice, sits at the intersection of these dual aspirations, and the essays in this volume explore its fraught status there. Contributions to this volume address questions such as : What's the problem with capitalism? Is the problem just with the practice or with the very paradigm? What is progress and who is responsible for it? What evolution is required at the individual system, and paradigm level so that enterprises and the executives who lead them may better integrate performance with progress? And whither consumers, employees, and investors in this evolution?
