How does the VC system undermine "smart" and "solid" in favor of "crazy" and "hyped," and what does that do to the basic principles of competition?

from Judith Samuelson
Executive Director, Aspen Institute Business & Society Program

Dear Friends, 

We are experiencing a moment of remarkable change in business. What is thought in boardrooms and taught in classrooms about the purpose of the corporation and value creation is changing in real time. Will business managers leverage this moment for the common good? 

I'm excited to announce that my book exploring these issues, The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World, will be published on January 12th by Berrett-Koehler. I hope you will consider ordering a free exam copy here.

With thanks, and great respect for the work you do to support the next generation of leaders and change agents in the world of business. 

-- Judy Samuelson
