“Conscious Capitalism is a philosophy based on the belief that a more complex form of capitalism is emerging that holds the potential for enhancing corporate performance while simultaneously continuing to advance the quality of life of billions of people..”

Sounds good at first sight but there is a drawback: Conscious capitalism requires conscious people and I don’t speak only of  “leaders” as they do in this website, leaders that “deliver value to the stakeholders”. This happens already now. The value is delivered to the chosen few and billions of people don’t participate. I don’t see, where Conscious Capitalism brings change.

In my opinion economy will only change when people are changing – recognizing the VALUE and interconnectedness of themselves. And then they don’t need “leaders” and so-called authorities who play already now the main part in the actual problems. Conscious Capitalism promotes “competition” and I think, cooperation would be much better for everybody (except of course “leaders”)…  To continue like this seems quite stupid to me. So I cannot see any great benefit in this “philosophy”.
