FDR’s Economic Bill of Rights & Heaven on Earth… Can we fix capitalism without first tearing it down?
On this episode of New Business Paradigms, Chief of Staff Kristy Jansen and Academy President and Founder, Rinaldo Brutoco, discuss why capitalism must be reformed in order to avoid a future of chaos and violence. The show begins with a conversation about Bernie Sanders provoked by a listener question (Thanks John!) and expands into a broader discussion about the candidate field, including the billionaires and other new additions to the Democratic presidential primary.
The show then pivots to the topic of reforming capitalism, centering around articles written by the co-CEO of Salesforce, Marc Benioff, on the excess and greed in the current economic system. Rinaldo compares the problems outlined by Benioff to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Economic Bill of Rights and the World Business Academy’s idea, Heaven on Earth. The show concludes with the realization that if we treat each other like Ohana, the Hawaiian word for family, the world would be a much better place than it currently is.
