As an economic system, capitalism has been the driving force behind tremendous global prosperity and innovation. However, it has also faced criticism for its negative impacts on social inequality, environmental degradation, and the concentration of wealth and power. Recognizing the need for change, many individuals and organizations are advocating for the transformation of capitalism.
In this thought-provoking episode, we delve deep into the topic of transforming capitalism to create a more sustainable and equitable future.
