Democratic capitalism creates jobs and builds wealth by motivating people to improve performance; mercantile capitalism cuts jobs to maximize profits; finance capitalism cuts jobs to make money on money.
Mercantilism and finance capitalism have an agenda with five times as many lobbyists as Washington politicians and enormous wealth for “campaign contributions.”
The people, however, have the votes to direct their political representatives and with their pension savings have the shares to direct corporate policy.
The Information Age provides new opportunities to organize this voting power in support of democratic capitalism. A proposed reform agenda can be examined on www.democratic-capitalism.com
