A short article published by the Tokyo Foundation here. I discuss the rising interest in public interest capitalism in Japan, as well as recent work relevant to the topic by Michael Porter, Mark Kramer, Andrew Haldane, and Richard Davies.
In connection with my research on Public Interest Capitalism, I’ve decided to write a monthly newsletter covering global economic trends. The first issue focuses on US trends including the ongoing economic recovery, the decline of labor unions, state and local government budget deficits and spending cuts, tax avoidance by large corporations, and financial sector profits. I also discuss Michael Porter’s recent article on creating shared value. The newsletter is available for download here. This work is supported by the Abegglen Scholarship Fund. To subscribe, please email me.
UPDATE: My friends in Japan suggested that I add my perspective on the Tohoku disaster. Here’s an updated version with a discussion of the disaster from a Public Interest Capitalism perspective.
