This talk could be called “How To Improve Capitalism.” Paul Tudor Jones II loves capitalism. It’s a system that has done well by him over the last few decades, and he has no desire to do away with it. Nonetheless, he sees a widening gap between the “haves” and “have nots” as our country’s laser focus on profits widens the gap between those who own the companies and those who work for them.

Additionally, Jones points out, when our businesses are focused solely on profits, the environment gets abused as well.


Here’s an article that points out specific ways Capitalism has hurt us and our planet.

In this thoughtful, passionate talk, Jones calls for a return to a more humane kind of capitalism, and outlines his planned counter-offensive which centers on the concept of increasing “justness” as a corporate measure, rather than sole focus on the bottom line.

For another hopeful view, check out this article on the new Conscious Capitalism that is arising on the planet.
