If you haven’t read any Noreena Hertz ideas, here’s a good place to start: Co-operative Capitalism
In Co-op Capitalism Professor Noreena Hertz, one of the most influential economists on the international stage, explains why we are at a critical juncture, where the Gucci Capitalism based on self-interest and profit maximisation of the last 30 years looks set to be replaced by an open source, Co-op Capitalism based on collaborative and shared enterprise.
Many have described Professor Hertz as a visionary and she is one of the most influential economists on the international stage. Her work is considered to provide a much needed blueprint for rethinking economics and corporate strategy. For more than two decades Noreena Hertz’s economic predictions have been accurate and ahead of the curve. In her number one best-selling book “The Silent Takeover”, Hertz predicted that unregulated markets and massive financial institutions would have serious global consequences whilst her 2005 best-seller, “IOU: The Debt Threat”, predicted the 2008 financial crisis. Her books have been translated into 17 languages.
