My ten-year career has been in asset management. I’ve seen employees, communities and various other stakeholders reap the benefits of a scaled business and I’ve also seen many of them suffer when that scale becomes too lumbering for innovation and equitable profit sharing. I like the idea of championing an economy in Cambridge that rewards local, sustainable business practice. Harvard Square’s community is an influential one. It’s a great place to incubate a new capitalism, one with a more imaginative and nutritious definition of value that challenges the idea that growth forever and at any cost is always best.
