The Value of Everything
An in-depth analysis on the world of finance
Entrepreneurs and companies often define themselves as "value creators", capable of carrying out activities that create wealth. But what if these were "stories" made up just to justify their income? And what is value really? The Value of Everything helps us understand what value is, the direction in which the world economy is moving, and how to change it.
Many useful tips to:
- Find out how and why the world of finance has reached its current volume.
- Retrace the history of economic thought, and see how different factors have influenced it.
- Open our eyes to the idea that there is a profound need to modify the current capitalist system.
Who are value creators?
We often hear companies and entrepreneurs describe themselves as "value creators". But what does this mean exactly? They say they are productive members of the economy, who carry out activities that create wealth, those who run the greatest "risks". But what if these were nothing but stories created ad-hoc to convince our governments and our society to justify their turnover? This is particularly evident in the financial sector, which has experienced immense growth compared to the productive sectors, and exerts a strong influence on the rest of our economy.
It therefore becomes essential to establish exactly what we mean by "value", an essential notion to understand what path the world economy is on, and how to change it.
