Dave Bayless has written a great post on democratic capitalism, and I quote: "Two hundred years ago, mercantilists' financial capital supplanted natural capital (i.e., land) as the key resource in the advanced economies of the world. Today, there is reason to believe that human, intellectual capital is ascendant. Might it be possible that knowledge workers who possess and control strategic know how will demand - and will be able to achieve - a meaningful role in business decision making? Will there come a day when Steve Jobs is elected (and fired) by the people who both invest in, and work for, the company?"
