Webinar Series – Capitalism 2.0: A Deeper Dive

capitalism

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
                                                                                                                         – R. Buckminster Fuller

Has capitalism lost its way? Can it survive or will it need to be replaced? Does your company understand the strategies for the new economy? And are you ready to compete in an economic system that rewards shared values, well being and inclusive prosperity?

CSRwire_TSSS_logosTSSS and CSRwire have joined forces to explore the world that follows Capitalism. Some are calling it Capitalism 2.0 and others are calling for an entirely new sustainable economy.   Either way the time has come for a change – join us for a dynamic conversation with leading experts and changemakers.
