Fixing the Game: What Capitalism Can Learn from Sports

Roger Martin, Dean, University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management; Columnist, BusinessWeek; Author, Fixing the Game: Bubbles, Crashes, and What Capitalism Can Learn from the NFL
In conversation with Doug LeMoine, Managing Director, Cooper

What can business learn from sports about management, gambling, point spreads and the dangers of playing an "expectations" market rather than a real market of tangible goods and services? Martin proposes that capitalism can avoid bubbles and crashes by emulating the NFL. This program will present five positive steps to heal American capitalism, fix the game, play tough and win in the real world.
