After the global economic crisis, many people are feeling that capitalism must mature toward the future.
Then, what is “maturity” of capitalism?
To know the answer, we should ask this question:
What is “maturity” of the human mind?
The answer to this question is clear.
To become able to see “invisible values.”
As the human mind matures, it becomes able to see “invisible values.”
Such as wisdom inexpressible in words, human relationships through sympathy, trust between humans, reputation in the world, cultures of organizations or societies, and so forth.
If so, what is “maturity” of capitalism?
The answer to this question is also clear.
To become the capitalism that emphasizes “invisible capital.”
Then, how can we realize this?
By taking off old glasses and look around.
The old glasses of “monetary economy.”
If we do so, we become able to see that “five paradigm shifts” are occurring in the economic principles that underlie capitalism.
In this book, you will find insightful and encouraging vision of the evolution of capitalism in the future.
