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.
