Compassionate Capitalism: The Intersection of Economic Growth and Social Justice by Gerard L. Hasenhuettl is a great book. It is an idea that society needs, but seems to always to be ignored because one of the ways capitalism is defined is greed; and greed is the problem with the current system. Greed is ruining our system and it’s going to take a concerted effort from the bottom and the top to solve this problem, and prevent our economy and our country from running off the rails. Everybody appreciates the benefits of capitalism here in America. Most of us just want those benefits to spread to all segments of society instead of just the top one percent. This book looks at our system as well as others, and suggests ways we can spread the wealth and make it work for everyone.
Compassionate Capitalism: The Intersection of Economic Growth and Social Justice is a serious look at how humanity handles wealth, security, survival, and business. This book takes a hard look at these issues, but it is written in a way that is easy to read and understand. I am not an economic expert, but I have thought about these issues and I could follow Gerard L. Hasenhuettl’s thinking on the subject and learned a lot as I read his words. The ideas are big, but simple. The solutions are elegant, but ultimately profound. Everything is organized and laid out in a way that keeps moving the reader forward. This may be a very important book.
