Today on Voices of New Afrika some of the brightest minds in the New Afrikan community will talk about capitalism. Is Capitalism "Freedom for the People" or "Exploitation of the People"? Here the hard truth about this global economic systems.
Huge disadvantages of the fabulously wealthy include no one around with the guts and wit to say, "You're being stupid!" Another, more intractable one is the delusion if you are rich you must be brilliant...in everything.
Over the past decade or so, John Henry has pushed his The Boston Globe and Red Sox to the edge of ruin and seems to have no sense of that. He is the ugly side of capitalism, or one of the ugly sides. He jacked up ballpark/ticket prices to the highest in basebaqll. Likewise, he is huge in expeneive newspaper paywalls and has made both home delivery and online Globe prices the highest in the nation, higher even than papers like the Wall Street Journal and Financial Times. Those two at least give you info to earn you money back and more. The Globe simply relies on its almost monopoly status (there is an asthenic Murdoch-owned tabloid for a weak competitor.)
This past week, Henry blew it again. He's already pared the writing/reporting staff to the nub. Now he went after the delivery contractor, switching to a cheaper vendor. That makes perfect capitalistic sense; bottom line, don't you know. The problem is that the new contractor has already failed elsewhere and certainly plonked here.
Let us consider Henry's empire and whether the delusional rich can ever objectively judge their decisions. I suspect you already know my conclusion.

Recently I interviewed Ryan McShane who has helped me tremendously. Ryan opened my eyes to looking at how you can impact your workplace and your home. Some of what he talks about is:
There are four principles of Conscious Capitalism.
1. Conscious leadership
Organizations mirror the actions and personality of the individual at the top. This is the kind of person people want to follow. The authentic, open person. Conscious Leaders are the ones who inspire loyalty and consistent high performance in their teams.
2. Stakeholder orientation
Conscious leaders know the importance of taking into account all of their stakeholders. You’re never going to become a premium brand by only focusing on the shareholders. The really important factors for long-term business success are the employees and customers, and often the vendors and community as well. Take care of them and they will take care of you.
3. Conscious culture
A values-based culture is one that is intentional about how people act and perform. When a culture is not defined and enforced, your people aren’t all moving in the same direction.

4. Higher purpose
Finally, the company should be in business to do more than just make money. Great leaders realize that in order to become successful over the long term, you must provide true value. That comes from passionate people getting inspired about their work. How inspiring is your company’s purpose? For example, would you want to work for a company whose mission it is to “deliver maximum value to the shareholders”?
At the end of our talk Ryan shares how he might be able to help YOU in your career and home life
