In The Dharma of Capitalism, Gor has synthesized in narrative and anecdotal form a new way of conducting business that reconciles the individualism of capitalism with the other-focused practice of dharma.
At a time when the business world is still adjusting to the impact of the financial crisis, leaders and decision-makers at all levels need to rethink their attitudes and strategies. Looking for new ways to conduct business, a number of global companies have already started changing their business models. The objective is not only to become more sustainable and responsible but more profitable in the long-term. In The Dharma of Capitalism Nitesh Gor explains why doing the right thing is more than a noble idea or a compliance issue and why it can be both practical and profitable.
Filled with practical advice and real-life examples, The Dharma of Capitalism is a thought-provoking, process-based toolkit that will help you evaluate every aspect of your business and achieve profit with purpose rather than profit for profit's sake.
