Whether you're CEO of Fortune 500, day trader, someone with 401k, anyone who thinks everyone on Wall Street is horror, or you simply don't care about the economy, you need to read Transforming Wall Street because it's a lot you do not know about capitalism in America today – and therefore hope of hope. Yes, it's a little fun to deal with, but the author Kim Ann Curtin also thinks there's a lot to celebrate, a lot of good people working in the financial markets and a better future for all of us to achieve. when we review capitalism and begin to live consciously.
Known as "The Wall Street Coach," Curtin said to write this book for a diverse career, including a bookstore manager, who served as managing director of a bank manager, being a personal assistant to the fund's patron, and eventually becoming private and executive trainer. Early in her training process, convinced that capitalism needed a little bit of conscious residence, Curtin decided to give free training to people on Wall Street, and then she tells us: "October 7, 2008, I started my training for those I hoped for. Within a few hours of sitting on my cement floor on Broad & Wall Street's corner, there was some interference in the air, and he said, "The market is out in the fall. & # 39; Then people started approaching me – as managers I didn't expect. "
When the stock market fell down and a big recession began, the seeds were organized for Curtin to train capitalists for conscious life, and from there came the idea of writing this book. She understood how shocked many people were with Wall Street, where many immoral behaviors and communication emerged in the coming months, but Curtin had also always been a strong clown in capitalism and she believes rather than two ideas are against, money and still doing good in the world, and she believes capitalism is the best economic answer; "Balancing capitalism by living consciously is what can and will transform our economy, Wall Street and the world."
Great and noble faith, but perhaps easier said than done. Still, Curtin is not misleading or trustworthy In Wall Street's transformation, she begins with the pioneering entrepreneurship, its foundations, and she understands the facts from the myths, assigns new light – or rather what was always there but often overlooked – on the teachings of Adam Smith and Ayn Rand on how capitalism should work, and why are these beliefs still important and effective today. It includes discussions with professors who are experts in the theory of capitalism and points out that capitalism is truly contrary to the fact that it is often misunderstood and distorted.
Then, convinced that she could find moral people on Wall Street as a model, Curtin interviewed the group she calls "The Wall Street 50," but eventually found more than fifty of them. These are ethical people who work in the financial sector. Some of them refused to be unethical and left corrupt companies on Wall Street, others have set up their own business with ethics that guides them and still others try to change the world by using capitalism as a fuel society. Curtin spent hundreds of hours interviewing Wall Street 50 and extracts from these interviews. Interviews include John Bogle, founder of The Vanguard Group, Bill Ackman, founder of Persing Square Capital Management and Jim Rogers, founder of Beeland. She also talked about dozens of people she referred to as "scholars" to gather her thoughts on moral life and how capitalism can be. These teachers are Neale Donald Walsch, author of Interviews with God, Rasanath Das, former investment banker who became Buddhist monk and Patricia Aburdene, author of Conscious Money.
The interview takes up the bulk of the book and is ranked by topic, including what Curtin calls five exercises to become more alert: self-reliance, self / other leisure, emotional immunity / current moment of consciousness, inner and outer Journey, and self-awareness / Mindfulness. She also discusses with Wall Street 50 how they balance being capitalists by living consciously, what to do when they are morally tested, what advice they would have for those who entered Wall Street and what they would do to change Wall Street if they had a magic wand.
The result of this study and interviews is a diverse perspective on what Wall Street is and what it can do. Not every interview with each other, but it allows us to think a lot and many ways to choose it can all lead us in the right direction. The purpose of Curtins is not to offer "Wall Street" fixes, but to open the conversation, encourage people to revise the definition of capitalism and how it works, to prevent worn-out feelings, and instead see hopefully the assets that capitalism offers on. If we all begin to think and live consciously when it comes to our own money and how it is used, I don't think we can underestimate the positive change that can happen. I rejoice how Curtin has fallen back on the "curtain" associated with Wall Street to show not only bad but all hope is. Wall Street's transformation of a sunbeam hopes to come through the window in a dusty room and allow us to rediscover the possibilities of capitalists who were always there.
