In The Soul of Capitalism William Greider shows how to reinvent capitalism so that it works not only for profits but for people, too. Greider contends that the recent contagion of financial fraud and corporate bankruptcies confirms what is wrong with capitalism. Our discontents are not just with dishonest CEOs, but with what our affluence costs us in family stress, struggling to make ends meet, and the social and environmental destructions of communities and natural surroundings. Greider proposes a fundamental realignment of power, showing where to find the leverage for changing the current system. He offers many successful examples and assures us that it is within our power to make the economy work for us.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The argument for ESOP (Employee Share Ownership Plan) gives more depth and nuance for the structure. It also expands the leadership debate. "

    " Published in 2003, it was uncanny to realize how many of his predictions have come true! An amazing re-thinking of capitalism & exposure of the lies we get fed by corporate America. There are ways to be capitalist & be respectful of persons, nature, and the future. "

    " Great book. Greider is an enlightened author. While reading his books, one can feel the real life behind them, almost vividly experience his arguments. He allows our minds to dialogue with him just like we were face to face. "
