Join our host Tom Yorton as he explores with business and thought leaders what it means to be a Conscious Capitalist.
Conscious Capitalism builds on the foundations of capitalism – voluntary exchange, entrepreneurship, competition, freedom to trade and the rule of law.
These are essential to a healthy functioning economy, as are other elements of Conscious Capitalism including trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation.
But how is it done? What does it look like for daily operations, buying, selling, managing? Where are the shortcomings? What do shareholders have to say?
Tom explores the foundations of conscious capitalism with his Chicago based guests, those pioneering how business can be a force for good and unabashedly profitable.
