The world needs innovative leadership

Bill Gates Speech

“What the world needs is innovative leadership – now more than ever – are the complexities of the huge problems such as poverty, […] disease, and feeding everybody. These things require that we invest in science and put our best minds on finding solutions. […] We need to create live changing innovations.”

There exist alternatives to global capitalism. Democracy and Freedom.

Why should we act?
2014: 2.325 millionaires. Oxfam says the richest % of people will own more than 50% of capital in near future.

What goes wrong?
Moral, ethical and functional dimensions of capitalism criticism. (https://www.philosophie.hu-berlin.de/de/lehrbereiche/jaeggi/mitarbeiter/jaeggi_rahel)

What are the alternatives?
A fair distribution => finding a symmetry between work, production means and capital employed. One option is to become an economic democracy, changing power structures. (see f.e. Karl Marx, G. A. Cohen, David Schweikert, Titus Stahl, Philippe Van Parijs)
