Book Notes: Betterness: Economics for Humans

Betterness: Economics for Humans by Umair Haque
Read Oct 20, 2014

The main message of the book is quite simple: we need to re-focus our businesses on improving wellbeing of all their constituents, instead of focusing on monetary profits. Unfortunately, Haque does not seem to have much in the way of practical advice as to how to make the change of focus happen.

What I did enjoy were the practical suggestions for re-framing the classical corporate vision/mission/values as ambition, intention, constraints and imperatives. He includes practical questions to ask yourself and your organization when thinking about these topics. For this section alone I consider this small book worth reading.
