Capitalism Revisited:

Sramana Mitra, a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley, writes a very interesting article on Forbes.com today about the current progression of capitalism in recent years.

“…I have long been troubled by the fact that Wall Street recruits some of the most highly educated talent in America into jobs that do not involve “building” or “leading.” Rather, these professionals spend their lives “trading”–buying and selling equities, for example, in companies that other people have built with their blood, sweat and hearts. And of late, it appears that the best and the brightest have been applying their creativity and innovation into scams, mostly.

In the upcoming month I hope to read, review and conduct a private interview with Sramana Mitra about her new book Entrepreneur Journeys. As an investor and business person with a passion for strategic management I look forward to gaining the insights provided in this book and speaking with Sramana about her views of current business practices.

Her article on Forbes can be viewed here.

    It is definitely troubling to think that some of the brightest minds in our country have been lured into professions where little value is created.

    That is all.
