In Defense of Business

357 views

Published on

This session is dedicated to the possibility that business is a noble yet frequently rebuked calling. With the constant bombardment from the media to the contrary, it is oftentimes difficult to see how businesses profit not only themselves, but all of society. So much so that the notion of having to "give back" to the community is redundant. If you are interested in learning more about this defense of business and the market, please join in the conversation led by Ed Kless, Sage senior director of partner development and strategy.

  3. 3. Jay Richard’s Eight Myths of Capitalism Myth Example Nirvana Contrasting capitalism with an unrealizable ideal rather than with its live alternatives Piety Focusing on our good intentions rather than on the unintended consequences of our action Zero-sum Believing that trade requires a winner and a loser Materialist Believing that wealth isn’t created, it’s simply transferred Greed Believing that the essence of capitalism is greed Usury Believing that working with money is inherently immoral or that charging interest on money is always exploitive Artsy Confusing aesthetic judgments with economic arguments Freeze-frame Believing that things always stay the same—for example, assuming that population trends will continue indefinitely, or treating a current ―natural resource‖ as if it will always be needed
