“Ek het dus molekulêre biologie bestudeer,” Ramaswamy het gesê oor sy vroeë universiteitsloopbaan. “Ek was soort van die nerdy ou in die laboratorium, het die grootste deel van my tyd nek diep in die laboratorium op die universiteit deurgebring, en jy weet, that was part of why later I kind of had this itch that I had never really fully scratched in law and political philosophy and all that stuff.”
So, after working in a biotech investing job for several years, Ramaswamy said he went back to law school and began reflecting on what he thought about both law and public policy. It was these reflections that led him to write “Woke Inc.”
Ramaswamy also said he noticed a change in korporasies‘ priorities – rather than focusing on making products for profit, they began taking into consideration the need to “represent the interests of all stakeholders.”
Stakeholders, het hy opgemerk, is a more expansive term than just financial investors, and can include entities like the Chinese government.
“Is it minorities? Is it people of color? Is it the Communist Party of China? Turns out I think the last one is actually a pretty darn important stakeholder that not a lot of people talk about when they talk about stakeholders, but I got curious about this,” hy het gesê.
Ramaswamy’s curiosity led to an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal discussing how this new stakeholder-based model breaks away with old-school economists.
“What it’s really saying is that people like me, CEOs, investors, people who control the dollars our economy, get to not only control the marketplace of products but also get to control the marketplace of ideas.”
Ramaswamy continued, “So the moral questions about whether or not to prioritize carbon emissions versus the price paid for consumer products, or whether one conception of diversity of ideas is more or less important than the visible diversity that we have on a corporate board, those are questions that we all ought to have a stake in because they’re questions about defining how our society works.”
