In a recent blog post, Desautels professor Henry Mintzberg issues a call for society to disavow its quest for “MORE”, which is destroying our businesses, communities, and planet, to refocus on improvement, or the “better”, as he puts it.

For Mintzberg, today’s enterprises have lost sight of what is right in favor of excess and greed, but there are many ways in which businesses can transition to operate and thrive responsibly.

As society continues to embrace technological advancement, we tend to overlook how the words that our ancestors used have lost their meaning. In an article for Asia Times, Desautels professor Reuven Brenner explores what happens when the words used for the physical realm are applied to a digitized society, and how the fit is not always a natural one. Prof. Brenner illustrates his point by referring to the legal system’s struggles with interpreting Google’s business practices.
