Publisher's Summary

Our global economic system is broken. But we can replace the current picture of global upheaval, unsustainability, and uncertainty with one of an economy that works for all people, and the planet. First, we must eliminate rising income inequality within societies where productivity and wage growth has slowed. Second, we must reduce the dampening effect of monopoly market power wielded by large corporations on innovation and productivity gains. And finally, the short-sighted exploitation of natural resources that is corroding the environment and affecting the lives of many for the worse must end. 

The debate over the causes of the broken economy - laissez-faire government, poorly managed globalization, the rise of technology in favor of the few, or yet another reason - is wide open. Stakeholder Capitalism argues convincingly that if we don't start with recognizing the true shape of our problems, our current system will continue to fail us. To help us see our challenges more clearly, Klaus Schwab looks for the real causes of our system's shortcomings, and for solutions in best practices from around the world in places as diverse as China, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Singapore. And in doing so, Schwab finds emerging examples of new ways of doing things that provide grounds for hope.

Despotic Garbage

I'd hoped that all my fears going into this were going to be dispelled and I would finally have the language of stake holder capitalism explained to me.
the only thing this book conveys is
1- GDP doesn't measure well being
2- you should let rich people form NGO's that use extortion and social credit scores on corporations.
allow these people to literally control everything top down globally.
3- America doesn't retrain old people in fields when they get replaced by non-existant robots.
4-german bind villains are real.

please I beg you germans leave the world alone.

Interesting

BUT… the economies are either controlled or not controlled. This system and the current system are no different other than the amount of people involved. But just because it involves more people doesn’t mean it’ll work (I’m skeptical). I’d be more interested to see a completely uninterrupted free market system(which I’ve never really seen). I can go on but that’s my review.

Interesting read but….

Very interesting concept, makes total sense and is a good way going forward following already known countries
Only concern is the author need to be equally critical of unions as he has with corporations, unions are still a political arm and unionized worker do not get a single benefit from the union fees, laziness is promoted and defended, which destroys as much as monopolies and corruption.

interesting and easily digestible

Interesting concept and ideas looking forward to the future of economics, policies and frame works that help society in large instead of the ones on the top. I'm no economist by no means and know little about the topic and even tho some concepts were a bit harder to grip, over all the writer made sure it is easily digestible for everyone. And they raised issues and solutions for topics such as climate change and the relation with GDP and how can we move forward and progress cleanly and fairly both socially and environmentally. And a lot more.

well worth a listen.

I'd heard a lot about Klaus Schwaub, and the WEF. It was good to hear what he had to say.

A book of propaganda

If you hadn’t read nothing else you would probably think this is a good idea, after understanding many aspects of this concept you would know that a lot of what Klaus is submitting to the world is a bunch of lies. He talks a lot about this stakeholding system but really the common person is hardly mentioned. He uses Singapore as a major inspiration of how the system could work unfortunately Singapore is a dictatorship not a true democracy
