Marketplace

Ethical capitalism. Moral capitalism. Enlightened capitalism. What are we talking about when we talk about how to change capitalism?  Molly talked with Philip Kotler, the S.C. Johnson & Son Professor of International Marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He has written more than 50 books about marketing, as well as the book we mentioned on the show, "Confronting Capitalism."

Speaking of books, you can vote for the book you want to read for our final Make Me Smart book club of 2017 on our website.  And make sure to send us a voice memo with the scary things you'll absolutely never watch or do for our Halloween "Chicken-Off" next week.  

Some other things we mentioned on the show:

Kai interviewed Robert Reich, former secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton about his book "Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few" 

YouTube is full of clips of Milton Friedman on "Donahue," including the rest of the clip we played today.

 

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA

As a nonprofit news organization, what matters to us is the same thing that matters to you: being a source for trustworthy, independent news that makes people smarter about business and the economy. So if Marketplace has helped you understand the economy better, make more informed financial decisions or just encouraged you to think differently, we’re asking you to give a little something back.

Become a Marketplace Investor today – in whatever amount is right for you – and keep public service journalism strong. We’re grateful for your support.
