Throwback Thursday: John Mackey on Need for “Conscious Capitalism”


2018 will bring with it a very special milestone: The fifth anniversary of Harvard Business Review Press’s publishing of Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business (first edition, January 15, 2013). As we close out the year–and on this very last opportunity for a “Throwback Thursday” in 2017–we thought it would be fitting to share some insights from one of the Conscious Capitalism movement’s most revered leaders as captured in the months just prior to the book’s publishing.

So, as you reflect back on 2017 and look ahead to the prosperous and fulfilling 2018 you will no doubt create for yourself and your business, take a few minutes to hear the book’s co-author and founder/CEO of Whole Foods Market, John Mackey, make the clear case for Conscious Capitalism in this Big Think interview from 2012.
