The driving force of capitalism is, unsurprisingly, the accumulation of capital.
Other things are accumulated along the way – some good (knowledge, skills, lives enhanced), some bad (waste, pollution, obesity, lives diminished, extinctions).
We’ve got really good at measuring the capital pile, but as individual businesses, we rarely look at the others. As a result we underestimate our impact on the world.
Time to account for more than profit.
