Summary
What makes a global company great? For the past few decades, more than 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies have either failed or been significantly downgraded in size, influence, or governance structures. In New World companies, author and corporate consultant Bruce Piasecki examines this sobering reality and explains why certain twenty-first century companies are likely to thrive while others fall short.-- cover
Summary
We all sense that corporations shape our family, our products, and our near future--perhaps more than ideology, national and regional policy, and religious doctrine. That is why capitalism remains the dominant force in most sections of the world today, only a few decades after Karl Marx wrote his infamous Das Capital. But how exactly does capitalism influence us? Is it for the better, or for the worse? Does it add freedom, or does capitalism co-opt and constraint individualism and creativity? Are there new forms of capitalism where societal and environmental expectations are shaping products, earth-shattering decisions, and investment trends?
