Elon Musk, creator of Pay-pal, SpaceX, Solar City and Tesla
"If something is important enough, even if you expect it to fail, you should do it anyway." - Elon
Tesla almost failed. Elon invested all of his $18M from the sale of Pay-Pal, into Tesla, and almost lost it all. He's a great example of a new way of doing business, where first aim isn't profit, it's getting something done that benefits the Earth and humanity.
From Capitalism to Creative Humanitarianism
Or let's just call it "From Capitalism to Humanism"
Today we have Capitalism. And it can be ruthless. The focus of capitalism is capital, make as much money for yourself and your share-holders as you can. But that's often at cost of the earth and humanity.
Capitalism is also inherently competitive: me against you. And if I get less, you get more.
Capitalism is egoic consciousness, and it costing us dearly. It is why the wealthiest four people in the US have more money than all the rest of the US population combined. It is more like a rapacious animal than a kind, considerate human.
Caring people want everyone to win, they aren't thinking of only themselves.
And caring is what we are moving into: Humanism, which has a very different set of priorities: 1. the Earth, 2. Humanity, and 3. Profit. And even then, profit is spent on something that benefits the group, the community, and the earth, not just that one business.
And the growing value of Transparency, will see to it that this trends continues to grow and predominate.
Competition is not in our nature.
