    I wanted to love this book so badly. But I expected something else. The history of our current neoliberal economic model is comprehensive and also easy to read with full of stories. I lack a more thorough comparison of the shareholder and the state capitalism. I fully lack the practical advices that a simple business can follow. This book is more for policy makers and economic enthusiast. I admire the initiatives of World Economic Forum, but for practical thoughts one should read Frederic Laloux I wanted to love this book so badly. But I expected something else.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book doesn't really say anything wrong. At the same time, this book doesn't say anything new. It feels like the writers tried their best to reach a target number of pages to earn their "badge of seriousness," but other than that it is really a fairly generalistic, basic, and overall non-essential read. The whole book could have fit in a tweet. This book doesn't really say anything wrong. At the same time, this book doesn't say anything new.

    We as a human society have gone down the wrong path for the past half century, adopting neoliberal ideals that have increased inequality and destroyed the natural world. We can address these issues by adopting stakeholder capitalism, a system where: "the interests of all stakeholders in the economy and society are taken into account, with companies optimizing for more than just short-term profits, and governments are guardians of equality of opportunity, a level playing field in competition, and We as a human society have gone down the wrong path for the past half century, adopting neoliberal ideals that have increased inequality and destroyed the natural world. We can address these issues by adopting stakeholder capitalism, a system where: "the interests of all stakeholders in the economy and society are taken into account, with companies optimizing for more than just short-term profits, and governments are guardians of equality of opportunity, a level playing field in competition, and a fair contribution of and distribution to all stakeholders with regards to sustainability and inclusiveness of the system" Along with more equitable outcomes and less destruction of the environment, stakeholder capitalism results in higher engagement and connection between all stakeholders; companies, employees, and governments become more flexible with the changing times; and consumers will benefit from increased competition and innovation. There is hope, and the author makes it clear in his writing.
