Bill Gates is Right on Creative Capitalism

"Bill Gates has it right. Business is the most powerful force for change in the world right now and gives the idea of creative capitalism real power"
The first is the issue of resources
A second force affecting the speed and direction of global capitalism comes from the demand side.
At the same time, the corporate form is changing very fast. New networks of companies and organizations are emerging, new ways of competing and collaborating are becoming more important. Old boundaries are withering.
A fourth catalyst is transparency. Leaders and organizations of all kinds are increasingly operating in glasshouses.
Finally, though less obviously, there is a palpable thirst among people around the world for leadership that is not for sale, for individuals and organizations that are not solely defined by the transactional rhythms and white-hot speed of the marketplace
