reimagining capitalism

This issue marks our fourth go-round with the Just 100, a ranking of corporate citizenry based on what tens of thousands of Americans have said they expect from the largest corporations. It’s a massive undertaking, spearheaded by Just Capital, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that businesses deliver on behalf of all stakeholders—customers, employees, partners and the environment as well as the shareholders. More than simply important journalism, the Just 100 is part of a three-pronged approach to reimagining capitalism first alluded to in a cover essay in March. For 2020 we’re committed to delving deeper into all three. Corporate accountability: We’re working with Just Capital to expand the Just 100—digitally, in print and at live events—highlighting those that practice stakeholder capitalism and calling out those that erode American trust in free enterprise.…

with libra, zuck is a hero

MARK ZUCKERBERG TOOK a verbal beating over Libra (among other things), Facebook’s proposed cryptocurrency and payments system, when he recently testified before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee. Well aware of the low repute in which Facebook and other high-tech giants are held these days, most of the committee’s politicians couldn’t resist the temptation to scold and harangue Zuckerberg. Actually, issues such as privacy and money laundering are addressable. Facebook is already working with regulators on such concerns. Nonetheless, regulatory pressures have forced a number of companies that were partnering with Facebook on this project to drop out. And this gets to the real reason the idea of Libra is so troubling to so many politicians, government bureaucrats, banks and economists the world over: Libra could do to central banks what Uber…

nipsey’s never-ending hustle

It wasn’t Rodeo Drive. But rapper Nipsey Hussle could look around at the strip mall he’d purchased in South Los Angeles—home to Baba Leo’s Fish Shack, Steve’s Barbershop and a Boost Mobile—and fall into a rhapsody about the area’s potential. He earned his nom de hip-hop selling socks, T-shirts and other more illicit goods nearby. Now he had a vision for redeveloping the plaza and had started by opening his own clothing store, calling it The Marathon to emphasize his long-term outlook. “We want to create enterprise around the music,” the 33-year-old artist explained in February 2019, seated in one of the mall’s stores. “As passionate as I am for music, I… have equal passion for making sure that when the music stops, the thing keeps going.” Seven weeks later, Nipsey Hussle…
