Assignment 1: LASA 2: Course Project—Understanding Creative Capitalism

In this assignment, you will examine the concept of creative capitalism. Bill Gates, cofounder and chairperson of Microsoft Corporation, advocates that in addition to seeking profits, corporations should also become social entrepreneurs in order to help solve social problems. He has called this creative capitalism. Gates argues the desire to help others who are less fortunate should be as powerful a motivator as increasing profits for businesses today.

Read the transcript or conduct a search for the video of Bill Gates’ speech at the 2008 World Economic Forum:
