Opinion is divided on one of the central question of our time: Is capitalism the source of society’s problems – or its saviour?
Many argue the sins of unfettered capitalism are plain to see.
From the greed that caused the financial crisis to the inexorable transfer of wealth to a tiny elite, capitalism is failing 99% of society.
Across the divide, advocates of the free market point out that the past 25 years has seen globalisation help more people out of extreme poverty than in any period of human history.
Which side is right and who will win the debate? At Good Deals we answer “neither” and “no one” – but explore the question with energy and incisiveness. The dynamics of society are rich and complex. The forces of the market can power social change, if they are kept in check by the right moral framework, by teams with strong values in their culture, and by customers who expect business to take a proactive role in being responsible for the economy, society and the environment. Alongside the force of technology and the accelerated idea exchange unleashed by the internet, now is an opportunity to use investment to tackle inequalities and power change.
Good Deals 2014 will bring together leaders across sectors and geographies to discuss challenges, share solutions, discover new ideas and get good deals done to power change in 2014 and beyond.
