Knowing its target audience capitalists , it does a good job of explaining existing issues with capitalism without going into activism mode.
The solutions that it proposes are clearly better, but maybe not enough. It paints a dreamy picture of information economy but doesn't touch the possible negative consequences - privacy, inequality, unemployment, consumerism etc.
It also assumes that ability of markets to reac Standing On The Sun tries to predict how capitalism will change in coming years. It also assumes that ability of markets to reach out to poor communities is essentially a win-win situation for everyone. I find this assumption quite troublesome.
It has quite useful insights on running a social enterprise and possible business models. I liked the chapters where they described how companies can create better feedback loops by measuring value in a broader sense and not just in terms of financial returns.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About Christopher Meyer. This approach frees the for-profit organization from having to raise the capital to buy the fleet of ambulances and plays to its strengths in running the operation. As a result, Dial is able to charge patients less than the taxi fare they would otherwise pay to get to the hospital. Instead, it absorbs the cost in order to contribute more skilled and self-reliant workers to the general population.

As you might expect from Meyer, a veteran trend-spotter and leader of conversations about the future of business his book with Stan Davis, Blur: The Speed of Change in the Connected Economy [Addison-Wesley], prepped executives for the full-throttle digital age , Standing on the Sun offers a mash-up of provocative ideas, observations, and predictions. For instance, after noting the maturation of the first digital-native generation in developing countries, he cites the brilliance of the young Kenyan entrepreneurs who created the Ushahidi platform, which uses cell phone data to construct real-time maps of unfolding crises, and predicts that digital information access and transparency will accelerate the movement to reform financial accounting globally.
The book creatively ties other mega-trends, such as demographic shifts and advances in technology, to the evolution of capitalism, but the mash-up also leads to digressions and a disjointed narrative. I would rather have read more about digital natives in developing countries or the views of Princeton University professor Anne-Marie Slaughter on how the Internet will make the World Bank more effective.
Still, if you approach Standing on the Sun as a seeker, looking for clues to what the future might hold, the book provides a lot of fresh ideas to consider.
