Behavioural Capitalism is a version of capitalism in which human action becomes the central factor for the production and provision of goods and services. This new influence of the large technology groups, which often exist only for a few years, is astonishing and astonishing, as is the development that their products have become an indispensable part of everyday life for many people and society at breakneck speed. A silent conquest and yet they are much more than just clever business models that can be easily integrated into the existing. These companies are only players on a playing field that has made their existence and growth possible in the first place. One thing that has too often been underestimated and overlooked so far is Behavioural Capitalism.
Behaviour means acting, tolerating as well as not acting. The processes can be conscious or unconscious. It is influenced and produced by stimuli. All of this may sound terribly abstract, but on closer inspection, behavior has always been used as a raw material, though not always so. We do not want to refer to the sale of indulgences in the Middle Ages, but to the insurance industry. It is aprime example of how the behaviour of the customer, often in the person of the representative, is researched, then evaluated by the company, and finally used to improve existing products, i.e. insurance, and to create new services. Only in this way were creative developments such as safeguarding one’s own death conceivable. Since these are immaterial, i.e. intangible goods, the behaviour of interested parties and customers is of outstanding importance. You can see this Video explaining what Behavioral Capitalism is.
Behavioral Capitalism concept was created by Andreas Herteux, a german economist, philosopher, publicist and author. Andreas Herteux founded Erich von Werner Society , a group dedicated to constantly analyze the global situation, arrange it, prepares it and designs appropriate models as well as theories for the representation of the reality. The Erich von Werner Society makes a significant contribution to the understanding of current and future world events. Read more on Behavioral Capitalism.
Today, behaviour is also a central production factor for classical and Financial Capitalism and complements labour, land and capital. This behaviour is then used directly as merchandise or processed into satisfaction and/or forecast products in a production process.
The presentation of this development was deliberately neutral, as it entails both opportunities and risks. The embedding of the individual in his own world, which serves his own fulfilment of needs and self-realisation, is at first not negative, especially since this does not have to be designed in a closed way. On the other hand, of course, there is a central world of who ultimately controls the stimuli and the data and whether the behavior or even one’s own reality is manipulated. This, like the model of behavioral capitalism, is now to be released for discussion. You can buy the book on Amazon : Behavioral Capitalism on Amazon – Direct Link(no affiliate).
The Erich von Werner Society thinks that the world is approaching a new era. These changes are because of or are accelerated by factors, which in combination and interaction with each other will trigger a new era: Change of the environment (e.g. due to climate change, resource exploitation, environmental degradation). Some of the world’s most threatening problems : Lack of Education: The right to education is not guaranteed within developing countries because of issues such as inequality among different ethnicities or classes, interstate or intrastate conflict, and poverty. 72 million children are unschooled, and about 759 million adults are illiterate. Additionally, girls are the least likely to receive an education. Children are key to our future success, yet many across the world do not have access to some of their most basic needs and approximately six million children die each year before reaching the age of five. Child health and education go hand in hand. Malnutrition of children leads to permanent physiological damage, known colloquially as ‘stunting’. Children who are hungry cannot concentrate and, thus, cannot learn. Children who are chronically hungry develop cognitive difficulties, which means they might never be able to achieve their actual academic or professional potential.
