INFLUENCE AND INCOME TO ALL: CITIZEN CAPITALISM
Citizen Capitalism is a bold new book that details an innovative proposal to deploy the existing structures of capitalism to deliver increased influence and income to all citizens. It is currently available for order.
The authors detail a visionary plan to give citizens influence over corporations, and earn some supplemental income too. It envisions the creation of a national mega-fund fueled by donations rather than taxes or government mandates. Every citizen over 18 would be entitled to a share in the fund, enabling them to both weigh in on corporate decisions and receive a dividend. This is a big idea, but also highly practical, using the tools of capitalism for the public good.
