Completing Capitalism Book Cover

Heal Business to Heal the World


Leaders in the business world have believed that their sole responsibility is to maximize profit for shareholders. But, in this analytically rigorous and eminently practical book, Bruno Roche and Jay Jakub offer a more complete form of capitalism, one that delivers superior financial performance precisely because it mobilizes and generates human, social, and natural capital along with financial capital.

Reviews

  • “ It's an approach that can deliver greater value to society and the environment and also deliver superior business returns—a ‘win-win-win' for all stakeholders in a corporate value chain... It is not just about doing good but is good for business.”

    • Olivier Goudet
    • CEO, JAB Group, and Chairman, Anheuser-Busch InBev

    • Dinah Louda
    • Executive Director, Veolia Institute, and advisor to the CEO of Veolia
  • “ The journey that Jay Jakub and Bruno Roche are proposing is a difficult one but a promising and fecund one. This is, I believe, the only reasonable option. Now is the time if we want to eradicate poverty in our generation. And here is how.”

    • Paul Michaels
    • Former CEO, Mars, Incorporated, and former executive, Johnson & Johnson and Procter & Gamble
  • “ Roche's and Jakub's superb scholarship is underpinned and supported by the practical reality of successful pilots and business world applications. They not only complete capitalism, they create and hand us a road map for responsible business in the 21st century.”

    • Former Associate Director, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Chairman, Mars Science Advisory Council; CEO, Oak Ridge Strategies Group; and Brigadier General, US Army (ret.)

    • Dr. Steven Garber
    • Principal, The Washington Institute, and author of Visions of Vocation and The Fabric of Faithfulness
  • “ The thinking is rigorous and backed up by careful research on how mutuality-based practices in social, human, natural, and financial capital can change the economic well-being of society. ”
