    Capitalising Happiness

    Unfortunately we're probably not going to have an rbe in this century. meanwhile, maybe there is a way to change the system from within; according to ricardo semler there is another way to make money and run companies:

    We may have a transition to a Resource Economic Model the day after today or it may never happen at all. RBE theory is, at the moment, a vague theory but it has been evolving. Bits and pieces have been or are being applied all the time, momentum has been increasing, could be that TZM/VP are partly responsible for this effect.

    Trust is one of the topics of the vid, I can trust anyone 100%, then the mouth opens and communication begins, never gets back to 100% from that point. Motivation can be exposed along with the ego (this guys motive/ego is equal to his legacy/estate/inheritance. The 100% took a big dip when the doc makers expressed that that were invited to make this about him and his ideas at the intro.
    I ask would he take his wife and children and go and become part of this community he created? Fold towels, make beds, reside in the same shelter with the same resources (only saw a cold water tap in that kitchen)?

    I have more to add but I want to count the tempo of a group of frogs now, while I burn one of my pre-Castro cigars.

    It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.

    You should ask him this question maybe email him? I agree with some of your criticism , but its always easy to criticize rich people, its harder to see where they are coming from. if you watch the full interview in yt he is talking in length about inequality and what he envision for his new community.
    for example he is talking about the absurdity of having security guards who are living in the same neighborhoods of the people they are trying to protect him from.

    I haven't watch the full video, but at first glance, I see no good reason to give credit to happiness-based management for the success of a company, as there are so many other factors in play. For sure many companies made money without having happy employees, and perhaps there are also companies in which employees are happy but which go bankrupt. Also, is the company's broader impact (eg environmental) taken into account?

    Its not only about happiness , its mostly about employees taking active role in their workplace like taking decisions, deciding their salaries and sharing profits. happiness is only the result of the structure of the company. employees that are happy to come to work every day can produce better results, but not necessarily. in general, if you're passionate about something you have a better probability of success.

    anyway, i'm not sure success was his goal in the first place. it just didn't make sense to him that employees are frustrated to come every morning to work so he tried a different system. eventually the company became successful, but i'm not sure it was his initial goal.

    Was this a story on better working conditions leading to a successful company or a company that is already successful trying to change the work environment for its workers? I would have loved to see More on the working conditions because they reminded of what a Co-op should be like. Maybe they could start a Mondragon Brazil?

    Love, eh? What is love? I wonder how much are people here familiar with what Jacque Fresco has to say about it (1st 40 seconds):
