TEDxGlasgow - Mick Jackson - Is Social Business the Evolution of Capitalism?

Social business harnesses the dynamism and creative power of capitalism but puts the enhancement of humanity at its heart, says Mick Jackson. Does it represent the Evolution of Capitalism? No economic system has ever lifted as many people out of poverty than capitalism. However it relies purely on the profit motive and as such reduces the individual to a one-dimensional being. Humans are multi-faceted; selfless as well as selfish. More About Mick Jackson...

There is nowhere else in the world quite like Chungking Mansions, a dilapidated seventeen-story commercial and residential structure in the heart of Hong Kong's tourist district. A remarkably motley group of people call the building home; Pakistani phone stall operators, Chinese guesthouse workers, Nepalese heroin addicts, Indonesian sex workers, and traders and asylum seekers from all over Asia and Africa live and work there--even backpacking tourists rent rooms. In short, it is possibly the most globalized spot on the planet continue

Seven weeks into Occupy Wall Street, the movement continues in locations both large and small. There have been recent clashes between protesters and police in several cities, most notably Oakland, California. Some of the first protesters arrested in New York are due to appear in court today, facing charges related to mass arrests made earlier in Manhattan and on the Brooklyn Bridge. Meanwhile, financial support has been pouring in. OWS organizers have raised more than half a million dollars and are now struggling to manage such a large pool of donations. Gathered here are recent scenes from the Occupy movement across the U.S. and overseas. [43 photos]
