The details of the accusation that capitalism has failed:
- The inability to create jobs
- Median income is stagnant
- The grotesque income inequality
- Prosperity is an illusion
- The creation of terrible pollution
- The pervasive slums it creates
I hope he is right about us being in a period of "transformative change", but my gut level assessment is that he is a glib business school type, i.e. he is a snake oil salesman (e.g. "institutions creating thicker more meaningful more authentic value"). His ideas glitter but there is no substance. I would rank him up there with business consultant Tom Peters who published the book In Search of Excellence identifying so-called "excellent" companies to be emulated just as these very companies all began imploding and going bankrupt.
When I compare him talking about technology, business, and change I don't hear the solid discussion of concepts and history that I saw in Peter Drucker. Instead, I hear a smooth talker with words that sound seductive but have no real substance that I can identify. I hope I'm wrong, but the impression I get from the above interview is that Haque is a will-o-wisp.
