Capitalism Is Back: Learn To Live With It

Private companies and multinationals make the free-market, capitalist economy work. We have just come through a remarkable period in history, when huge efforts were made by the communists and others to eliminate private enterprise, but it is now back all around the world. Humanity cannot live without companies, but how do we learn to live with them?

Instead of eliminating companies we should now accept their contribution to society, but change the law to ensure that with running a business goes the responsibility to help society face the economic, social and especially environmental challenges of the future.

Globally human societies are organically developing social structures based on the work of governments, for-profit and non-profit sectors. Now is the time for private enterprises of the for-profit sector to step forward with the other two formal sectors to help humanity face the challenges of the future. We must actively find ways to bring the power and creativity of private enterprise into positively shaping humanity's future.
