Jeremy Goldman

It’s a crazy world right now, and COVID has exposed quite a few problems with capitalism as it’s currently constructed. In Accountable: The Rise of Citizen Capitalism, Warren Valdmanis and Michael O’Leary take us inside the fight to save capitalism from itself. Corporations are broken, reflecting no purpose deeper than profit. But the tools we are relying on to fix them—corporate social responsibility, divestment, impact investing, and government control—risk making our problems worse. Instead, they propose a new economic model they call citizen capitalism that will generate prosperity for all, not just those who sit atop the earning chart, and will demand, above all else, accountability.
