  • Presents a fresh, balanced, highly readable and deeply informed case for how the pursuit of sustained financial success and the exercise of social responsibility to employees, consumers and society not only can-but must-go hand in hand if we are to have the world we seek in the future. I learned a lot

  • Unwilling to settle for easy answers or superficial changes, O'Leary and Valdmanis push us all to ask more of our economic system

    United States Senator Michael F. Bennet
  • Striking in its clarity and insights borne from the authors' experience as investors on the frontlines of capitalism's excesses and potential. The case studies of some of the best-known companies and investors don't pull punches while offering tangible examples of the changes in culture and rules of the game required for a new type of capitalism

    Daniella Ballou-Aares, CEO and Co-Founder of the Leadership Now Project
  • Solving our biggest social and environmental problems means reshaping the role that businesses play in our society. This informative book addresses the challenges we face in achieving this crucial transformation

    Sir Ronald Cohen, Chair GSG (Global Steering Group for Impact Investment)
  • In today's reality, business represents a picture of dysfunctionality, of excesses benefitting the few, of gross injustice. Tomorrow's business leaders have an obligation to create a different reality reflecting our better hopes and inspirations. Accountable takes you on that journey. It's a wonderful trip

    Peter Georgescu, Chairman Emeritus of Young & Rubicam
  • For decades the dominant view has been that the purpose of companies is to make money for their shareholders. No more. Combining compelling examples and analytical insights, O'Leary and Valdmanis explain why the world is changing and provide a roadmap for how shareholders and citizens can and must transform the corporate landscape to save capitalism from itself

    Oliver Hart, Harvard University, Nobel Laureate in Economics, 2016
  • The authors have been at the forefront of thinking on how markets and business can better serve society for many years. Accountable captures not only the history that underpins modern-day corporate purpose, but its present and future. The central message-that capitalism can and must be part of the solution to society's greatest challenges-has never been more important

    Martin Whittaker, CEO of JUST Capital
