60 min. from Fri Oct 31 00:00:00 CDT 2008 Show - Cheryl welcomes Patricia Aburdene, author of Megatrends 2010: The Rise of Conscious Capitalism. Aburdene says "capitalism is finding its soul" and points to 7 trends that will transform the way we all work, live and invest to prove it. Aburdene has a track record of deciphering the signs of significant long-term change. In the book Megatrends more than 20 years ago, she and John Naisbitt described the birth of the "Information Economy." A decade later, they predicted a networked, technology-driven era in business.
In Megatrends 2010 she shows how values, consciousness, and leadership at all levels are reshaping capitalism. She says, "we the people have the power as investors, employees, and consumers to heal capitalism." How has this moved from being a mantra of a few radical idealists to being embraced as an emerging trend in society? Join Cheryl and guest Patricia Aburdene to explore this profound global shift and the important role you play in creating the future.
