What Is Business?

What Is Business?

Business
What is business? In simple terms, it is any activity that involves the production, distribution, and sale of goods and services to generate profits and accumulate wealth. A business can be a sole trader, a Hindu Undivided Family, a partnership firm, a joint stock company, or a cooperative undertaking. There are many different types of business. Learn about each type below. In this article, I'll discuss the importance of profit and risk, Organizational structure, and internal functions.

To calculate the profit of a business, total business expenses are subtracted from the revenue to determine the firm's actual income. Though…

The Nature of Technology and Its Ethical Implications

The Nature of Technology and Its Ethical Implications

Technology
What is the nature of Technology? How does it shape our society? What are the ethical implications of technology? The concept of Technology has not been consistently defined in the literature, but it is widely accepted that the concept of Technology can be broken down into two distinct levels. The first level describes the big ideas behind technology, and the second level is concerned with the features or factors that make it so. This article aims to clarify some of the terms that are used to describe technology. Technological systems of control The rise of technological systems of control has dramatically reduced human agency and obscured the nature of power operations. Yet, they are not yet thoroughly studied or debated. The social conditions that allow these systems to work have…

Changing What’s Expected – When Introspection Becomes A Norm

Changing What’s Expected – When Introspection Becomes A Norm

General Insights
The value of deep introspection for one’s life is enormous. Learning to listen to your own instincts and have some degree of trust for them (obviously not going overboard) is extremely important for a rich life. You can’t have a fulfilling existence without it, unless you have attained some kind of enlightenment through the so-called ego illusion. But I’ve come to think that how we treat introspection as a culture and as a people says a lot about the state of our civilization, our culture, and our development. How we regard introspection (and self-understanding, self-trust, etc.) should be a very important question. Now that we’ve mostly agreed that human rights, rule of law, etc. are givens, we should hold the value of introspection much much higher.  And we should judge ourselves…

Getting Comfortable with Being Misunderstood

Getting Comfortable with Being Misunderstood

General Insights
It seems people are more scared than ever to be misunderstood. At any minute you could be called a traitor or a bigot or any number of horribly damaging things.  It could mean the end of your career, people say. It feels critically important to manage our reputations and chase after the opinions of others. For our culture, this is almost a death sentence for virtues like spontaneity, originality, and authenticity.  No wonder comedians, the standard bearers of these virtues, are scared to perform on college campuses, where mob rule has become the norm in recent years. If we’re misunderstood, we get concerned that our reputation, what some call our most valuable asset, is ruined. But our reputation is something that ensues from our genuine and original actions.  If you adjust your actions…

Is There a Crisis of Meaning?

Is There a Crisis of Meaning?

General Insights
Is there a crisis of meaning? You’ve heard the story – suicides, addiction, depression, tribalism.  Ben Shapiro said, “There is a god-shaped hole in the American heart and we are filling it with tribalism and partisanship and rage.”  Similarly, David Brooks is talking about the importance of community. But “god” and community are neither necessary nor sufficient conditions for filling that hole.  Consider that American youth faced an enormously consequential “crisis of meaning” in the 50s and 60s, at a time when there was plenty of god and community – maybe too much. We’ve neglected some very simple, even common sense practices and principles that, in times of crisis like this, people have the opportunity to rediscover. One of the most egregious failures of our society is that young people generally aren’t expected to cultivate their…

Hunger for Wonders

Hunger for Wonders

General Insights
“The lack of a balance of intellect and vision in our lives leads to the pursuit of doubtful cults of the supra-rational.”   – Theodore Roszak Humans require a balance of “intellect and vision”. We need to remain deeply grounded in reality with the help of reason and logic (intellect). And we need a belief system to direct us (vision). “Intellect” is pretty easy to define (which is itself highly consequential, as we shall see). “Vision” is more difficult to define.  The word “vision”, as Roszak uses it, really is just a symbol to represent something. But we all know what it is even if we have never heard it described clearly.  And don’t be fooled by the clowns managing your office when they put the word “vision” on powerpoint presentations.…

The Generation of Sheeple

The Generation of Sheeple

General Insights
“Nothing is more useful or fitting than to be a normal human being; but the very notion of a ‘normal human being’ suggests a restriction to the average.” – Carl Jung, “Modern Man in Search of A Soul” Curiosity, rebellion, moral courage – the traits we usually expect to see in young people, seem to be in short supply among our promising youth. Take a look at college graduates of top universities. We can see that most of them are robotically marching into a couple of the same professions where they will hold the same job titles and try to fit themselves to a handful of standardized descriptions written by corporate managers. They are smart and “excellent”, but are apparently directionless and without purpose  (even without the basic idea that it…
