Because corporate ownership has become democratized so gradually, few of us have been aware of an important shift that is taking place.The Civil Economy offers examples from Hewlett Packard to Microsoft to British Petroleum, in which shareholders have in the past few months wielded their control in dramatic and noticeable ways that would have seemed unimaginable just a few years ago. The premise of this book is that this new ownership will have a profound effect on the world we live in, especially on the main stakeholders in the capitalist equation: investors, senior executives and their boards, pension funds and institutional investors, as well as the intermediaries who regulate and act as intermediaries.This book offers a blueprint to how The Civil Economy is re-engineering capitalism to match business with public interest, creating a new concept of economic rights and responsibilities. The civil economy, it argues, is a phenomenon that will force the rise of a new species of corporation. "The successful enterprise will be one skilled at cultivating commercial success in a context of new accountability and practical social responsibility."Civil ownership is demolishing old rules and habits, and laying groundwork for what amounts to a new "constitution of commerce." This book spells out what conventional thinking is destined for extinction and what fresh strategies will be necessary for corporate survival in the coming civil economy.
