    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.
