Cooperation Beats Competition [electronic resource]

Ethical Markets Media
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Survival of the fittest is a phrase coined by economist Herbert Spencer and often used to imply that competition, not consensus, is the fundamental means of survival. But an age-old spiritual concept-that placing the common good ahead of self-interest will enhance both-has been getting new attention. In this program, Hazel Henderson and ethical investing leader Terry Mollner assert that even in the financial realm, cooperation can outperform competition. Mollner uses the example of Occupy Wall Street to illustrate ways that new economic paradigms can be created, and tells the story of how he convinced Unilever to allow Ben & Jerry's to retain its social mission after being bought out.
