2014-02-28

The author is part of the "Alternative Management" third year specialization program in HEC Paris

Hervé Kempf considers that time has come to abandon capitalism and come back to the logics of solidarity. To do so, it is necessary to change our collective psychology and current social codes that are only driven by individualism and unrestrained consumption, thus feeding capitalism
