Open House - Replacing Shareholder Maximization

    Posted 07-25-2020 22:04

    Please meet the author of the kind of revolutionary financial management textbook that we have long wanted and needed our finance colleagues to use and our economics and other colleagues to read.

    You are invited to open houses introducing a brand new (June 2020) financial management textbook appropriate for the realities of the 21st Century – and not embedded in the myths, fictions, and ideologies of the 19th and 20th Century.

    Are you tired of trying to do your job in a business curriculum dominated by financial thinking and teaching that define the purpose of the firm is to maximize shareholder wealth.

    Are you tired of business education guided by the neoliberal narrative that assumes we are all merely greedy little consumption machines competing to make more and more money to buy more and more things that yield little or no joy

    in life?

    Are you ready to invite your finance and economics colleagues to transform their teaching and research to be fully aligned with the need for a sustainable/flourishing/regenerating world?

    Are you ready to start finding the finance ---and economics, and marketing, and accounting, and ethics, and management, etc. --- faculty colleagues who agree with you that we need fresh thinking, teaching, and researching in finance and economics?

    Are you ready to help your finance and economics faculty colleagues bring their teaching and research into the realities of the 21st-century?

    And do you think some of them are not likely to do so without support and encouragement from you and many others, and are you willing to give that support?

    If some or all of your answers are "yes," please join us for this open house. You will learn about a new finance management textbook and a syllabus for a fall 2020 intro to financial managing course using the text. It will help you see how to transform one of the biggest barriers to educating business students for the common good into one of greatest opportunities for doing so.
