Elizabeth Castillo on Integrated reporting as a tool for sustainable wealth creation

At the beginning of each term, I ask my students to give examples of a resource. They typically say things like money, buildings, and cars. Then, I ask them to tell me what they value. Their answers change dramatically. They talk about family, friends, relationships, and their emotional and physical well-being. When they realize the discrepancy between what they think is valuable and how they defined resource, many are shocked.

In business, we experience this same disconnect. Read More.

Monuments, Memory, and Meaning

Confederate monument pulled down with rope.

Monuments commemorating historical figures have become a source of controversy among Americans today. Some historical monuments from the past stir emotions among people for different reasons. While some believe the people commemorated do not represent American values, and thus the monuments should be removed, others believe removing them is an attempt to erase history, and bows to current fashionable trends that may prove transient. Three scholars will explore these controversial debates and their implications, including the interrelationship of the present and the past. Panelists include the following scholars from the ASU College of Integrative Sciences and Arts:

Vanessa Fonseca, Assistant Professor, CISA: "Juan de Oñate and the Vestiges of Colonial Power in the U.S. Southwest"
Brooks D. Simpson, ASU Foundation Professor of History, CISA: "Confederate Monuments, Then and Now"
Moderator: Eric Nystrom, Co-director, ASU Public History/Associate Professor of History, CISA

Our alumnus John Martinson gears up for a carbon-neutral road trip! John Martinson looks a Tesla in a showroom.

Completing an ambitious road trip in an electric vehicle may worry some people, but for Martinson, it’s another way to live his values. Martinson is a recent graduate of the ASU School of Sustainability’s Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership program, and he’s also the school’s alumni board president. Before he graduated from the school, Martinson co-owned the successful China Mist Tea Company for 34 years. He believes in natural capitalism, which is a business model that takes into account the value of earth’s natural resources and ecosystems. Read More.

Elizabeth Castillo: How the Nonprofit Sector Can Help Save Capitalism from Itself

Two butterflies feeding on a flower while also pollinating it.

While the 2016 U.S. presidential election surprised many people, there is one person, if he were still alive, who would not blink an eye that Trump—the corporate magnate—won. Economist Karl Polanyi (1886–1964) studied the evolution of capitalism. His 1944 book The Great Transformation argued that the market and the state (business and government) increasingly work together to advance their mutual self-interest, often at the expense of the people. This is because the market, rather than being truly “free,” requires legislative policies to support it. Examples include legal enforcement of contracts, private property rights, and labor policies to influence wages ...
