5.0 out of 5 stars Was Going to Ignore, Then Could Not Put It Down
December 17, 2007
This book arrived in the mail with no letter. I normally do not read or review unsolicited books, but as I was deep into The Battle for the Soul of Capitalism instead of ignoring it I picked it up and it grabbed me.
This is a fine book, a tale well told with deep detail where there needs to be detail. My only thought as I put it down was, Wow! followed by another thought: what would it take to make Wall Street traders a force for good as John Bogle calls for in his own book?
If you want to be a trader in today's market where you buy on dips and sell on spikes, this book is as good as any.
Here are some others that in my view portend a bright future for moral capitalism and communal ownership:
The Politics of Fortune: A New Agenda For Business Leaders
The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid: Eradicating Poverty Through Profits (Wharton School Publishing Paperbacks)
The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom
Revolutionary Wealth: How it will be created and how it will change our lives
Infinite Wealth: A New World of Collaboration and Abundance in the Knowledge Era
The Tao of Democracy: Using Co-Intelligence to Create a World That Works for All
