Markets with Morals: What if we designed markets based on empathy that no longer relied on invisible or coercive hands?


As the new default paradigm, stakeholder economics supports business as a force for good. For profit and non-profit corporations exist and cooperate to meet the needs of society with empathetic leadership and holistic analysis of societal and market conditions. Market actors are embedded with morals that return workers home fulfilled, leave the environment healthy, and refuse to exploit human populations and individual limbic systems for short-term profits.
