The Secret Life of Pamphlets: A Look at How Anarchism and Creative Business Come Together

Zingerman’s co-founder Ari Weinzweig draws on his in-depth studies of anarchist approaches—bringing out the best in everyone in the organization, reducing hierarchy, the import of free choice, an abundance mentality, teaching everyone to lead, creativity and caring collaboration—to show how they fit with and support the basics of good business. He will get you thinking and leave you with a wholly different view of what anarchism—and good business—is all about.
