Here’s a great take on neo-capitalism. Or rather — because that sounded so like “neo” as in “neocon” — new capitalism (sounds less menacing, I think):
Whereas Gucci capitalism was about beggar thy neighbour, co-op capitalism recognises that collaboration can trump competition. Where Gucci capitalism was about individual success, co-op capitalism is about our collective future and interdependencies. Gucci capitalism was all about people serving capital; co-op capitalism is about people sharing the spoils of capitalism in an equitable fashion. The co-op model may well resonate much closer with our true natures than Gucci capitalism did. The assumption of Gucci capitalism — that we’re selfish, super-individualistic beings who care only about maximising our wealth, salaries and resources — turns out to be more a failing of mainstream economists than an accurate depiction of us.
