[french ]Vers un capitalisme cognitif ? > L'économie de la pollinisation | Nouveaux paradigmes Social Enterprises and the Social Economy: Ownership Matters 17 September 2015 co-authored with Nancy Neamtan Walmart is not Greenpeace. This seems clear enough. As individuals, it is easy enough to balance our time between the economic and the social: for example, doing business in our working hours and volunteering for social activities in our private time. At the extremes are corporations that concentrate on the profit-maximizing “Shareholder Value” (restricting their social activities to keeping within the letter of the law) and NGOs that concentrate exclusively on their social missions. Socially Responsible Companies Here we refer to companies, big and small, that act in socially responsible ways, beyond any claims of CSR. In fact, a popular mantra these days is that “it pays to be good”, or, if you like, that companies “do well by doing good”, which suggests that the social is pursued for purposes of the economic. Benefit Corporations Hence the forms above do not quite balance the social with the economic. Cooperatives Community Enterprises

Le PDG d'Unilever reçoit un méga bonus pour sa contribution au « développement durable » Qui a dit que le développement durable était incompatible avec le profit ? Le patron de la multinationale de l’agroalimentaire Unilever, Paul Polman, vient de se voir octroyer, pour la première fois en 2013, une prime complémentaire de 508 458 euros. Une prime censée récompenser sa contribution à la « performance » du groupe en termes de « développement durable ». Apparemment, le conseil d’administration a estimé que ses 1,18 million d’euros de salaire, ses 700 000 euros d’avantages divers, ses 1,3 million d’euros de bonus « normal » et ses presque 4 millions d’euros de rémunération en actions – presque 8 millions d’euros au total ! – n’étaient pas à la hauteur pour le remercier comme il se devait de sa dévotion à la construction d’un avenir plus radieux pour l’humanité [1]. Une conception de la responsabilité sociale pleine de trous En termes d’image, les résultats sont là, puisqu’Unilever accumule désormais les certifications vertes ou éthiques.

Toward a Spiritual Economics Many people think that capitalism and market economics grew out of materialist philosophy that classical physics has given us. But this is myopic thinking of people who have missed the evolution of consciousness in the affairs of the manifest world. First notice that during the period that capitalism developed in the hands of such luminaries as Adam Smith, it was Cartesian dualism under the modernist umbrella that was the influential metaphysic, not materialism. In modernism, mind and meaning are valued. Second, notice that capitalism replaced feudalism and the mercantile economy (Adam Smith's term for the economy prevalent in England in his time), in which the pursuit of meaning is highly limited and vast numbers of people are denied it. Third, notice that the only serious challenge to capitalism after the demise of feudalism/mercantile economy has been Marxist economics. Second, the free market does not seem to be free any more. Consciousness is the ground of all being.

Bernard Stiegler : « Le marketing détruit tous les outils du savoir Texte publié intégralement dans la revue Soldes [1], que vous pouvez vous procurer dans l’une de ces librairies ou lors de l’événement organisé au Point éphémère à Paris le 24 mars (voir à la fin de l’article). Peut-on sortir de l’ère industrielle ? J’ai la conviction profonde que ce qu’on appelle humain, c’est la vie technicisée. Quand on appréhende les questions dans leur globalité, il est inconcevable de faire face à cette poussée démographique avec des moyens non industriels. D’où vient cette hégémonie du capitalisme financier ? En 1977, au moment du mouvement punk, c’est l’enclenchement d’une catastrophe annoncée. Comment s’opère cette destruction des savoirs ? Aujourd’hui, 180 millions de Chinois sont dépressifs et partout ailleurs les gens sont dépressifs. Le marketing triomphant… ? Ce qui s’est mis en place dans les années 1950 avec le développement des médias de masse, c’est le projet d’Edward Bernays, le neveu de Sigmund Freud. Le web, c’est l’ère industrielle de l’écriture.

New Currency Frontiers 4 Reasons Why The Future Of Capitalism Is Homegrown, Small Scale, And Independent | Co.Design You won’t learn about it in business school, hear about it from Wall Street, or see it in Palo Alto. But if you spend time in Bushwick, Brooklyn, or on Rivington Street in Manhattan, you just might detect the outlines of an emerging “indie” capitalism. This new form of capitalism is not just about conventional startups and technology and venture capitalists. If you add up all the trends under way today, I believe we are beginning to see the start of something original, and perhaps wonderful. It may prove to be the economic and social antidote to the failed financial capitalism and crony capitalism that no longer delivers economic value in terms of jobs, income, and taxes to the people of this country. It’s too early to define the exact shape of this latest iteration of capitalism, but what indie capitalism appears to have is a distinct sensibility. Indie capitalism is local, not global, and cares about the community and jobs and says so right up front. What do you think?

Lanceurs d'alerte français : Thérondel, Kerviel, Falciani, les visages de la nouvelle vague? JUSTICE - Toute la planète connaît Edward Snowden, l'informaticien qui a révélé le vaste système d'espionnage de l'agence américaine NSA. Une histoire forte, grâce à laquelle le jeune homme de 30 ans a rejoint le panthéon des "lanceurs d'alerte". Mais la France n'est pas en reste. Pour ses avocats, l'enjeu est clair: il s'agit de mobiliser l'opinion publique pour lui offrir le statut symbolique de lanceur d'alerte. Selon l'agent, une banque (non identifiée) avait transmis très tôt à Tracfin une déclaration de soupçon. Faute d'obtenir un ordre écrit, il avait fait part publiquement de ses interrogations, par le biais de son blog anonyme sur Mediapart. En septembre, Olivier Thérondel a été suspendu de Tracfin et réaffecté aux douanes, son corps d'origine, en région parisienne. Pour son avocat Maître William Bourdon, "Olivier Thérondel est un lanceur d'alerte exemplaire" , alors qu'il est lui-même auteur d'un Petit manuel de désobéissance citoyenne. Son statut est assez spécial.
