Shapeshifting Capitalism: What Does the Future Hold?
Michael A. Leven School of Management, Entrepreneurship and Hospitality
This study highlights the shortcoming of present capitalism and speculates on its future shape. Shapeshifting has been an essential characteristic of capitalism that may continue. Uneven economic growth and the widening gap in wealth and income may instigate capitalism's shapeshifting. The study uses two information streams to support the suggestion of capitalism's possible future shapeshifting. Information on wealth and income gap is one, and technological developments' dominance and consequences are the second. These two actors present two scenarios that may determine the shape of this shift. Finally, the study elaborates on these scenarios.
