Connected Capitalism: How Jewish Wisdom Can Transform Work

Front Cover
University of Toronto Press, Apr 13, 2021 - Business & Economics - 264 pages

In our present state of disconnect and loss, Connected Capitalism offers us a deeper and more satisfying approach to both work and life.

What should our post-COVID work world look like?

In Connected Capitalism, David Weitzner shows us how to draw from the classic teachings of Judaism in order to positively transform our workplaces and our working lives. He outlines a philosophy that will empower the disenchanted to build a stable future in a world of crony capitalism, global pandemics, racial injustice, and social disconnect.

Weitzner, a professor of management who chooses to look beyond management and mindfulness, envisions a workplace based on the ancient Jewish practices of mitzvah, creating a space for meaningful moments with other people, and chavrusa, co-creating and working on endeavors together.

Combining these spiritual concepts with the voices of today's political strategists, business leaders, and artists, Connected Capitalism inspires us to approach our work with curiosity, engage with those who were once strangers, and tap into a hopeful and meaningful future.
