Although today’s global beliefs, ethics, and moral deficiencies have become a common consensus among people, they are far from attracting sufficient attention and constructive investment compared to ecological and environmental issues. The unprecedented imbalance between material wealth and relative lack of spirit has become a basic problem that contemporary society must solve. This book reveals that crises of beliefs and values, ethics and morals are the root causes of all social crises. Enterprises and entrepreneurs are the mainstay and leading force of contemporary economic society. However, the status quo of values ​​of the entrepreneurs group is precisely the least optimistic. This book uses a brand-new perspective to answer the utility of faith in entrepreneurs and enterprises, to find the connection between entrepreneur faith and enterprise performance, to explore the inner connection between entrepreneurial values ​​and value creation, and to summarize the types of entrepreneurs who love. This book can provide useful reference for constructing the values ​​of loving entrepreneurs. Please downloadhere.

《爱+经济学》简介

当今世界面临三重危机:人与社会关系的危机、人与人关系的危机、人与其生存环境的危机。这三重危机有愈演愈烈之势,已经危机到当今的社会秩序,而原有的经济学框架对此解释发力更无法提供解决之道。本书认为危机爆发的原因是正外部性缺失,同时本书综合各个学科对爱的研究,认为爱的本质是正外部性,并在此基础上构建"爱+经济学模型",提出了"爱+经济学原理",对当前的社会危机进行深刻解读,同时分别从微观的消费、旅游、企业、教会和宏观的教育、垄断、专利和创新等关乎经济发展和人民福祉的方面进行分析,并给出应对之策。
