Democratic
Capitalism,  The Way to a World of Peace and Plenty
by Ray Carey

Hard/Softcover/Kindle - 5 May, 2004, Available on Amazon.com

Ray Carey presents the theory and practice of democratic capitalism by coupling his experience with a synthesis of the thought of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and John Stuart Mill.  The empirical evidence is clear: democratic capitalistic companies produce superior results, and nations that support economic freedom and keep money neutral improve the lives of their people.

Dear Mr. Carey,

Alaina Flaherty kindly forwarded your letter of March 28, 2011, to me. I am so sorry for the long delay in responding.

I appreciate your thoughtful letter and your interest in and concern for educating young people of character and integrity. I share your deep concerns for developing our next generation of leaders. Thank you as well for your cogent description of Democratic Capitalism.

While our goals are similar, our means of achieving them differ. At Harvard Business School, our first-year students takes a class on Leadership and Corporate Accountability, in which they spend a semester focusing on just these issues. We also aim to thread the issues of honesty, character, and integrity throughout our courses. It is important to me that all our alumni, as you so well demonstrate, lead with these values at the forefront of their minds.

Thanks for your interest in management education.

Best Regards,

Nitin Nohria

Ray Carey was Chairman of the Board and CEO of ADT Security Systems Inc. when I joined their Engineering Department in 1973. My specialty was Microwave Transmission Systems, and my previous employers were Bendix Navigation & Control Division and IT&T Avionics Div. Working at ADT was very different from working at either Bendix or IT&T.

ADT had a charter which was taken seriously. We, the employee-associates, were entrusted...
