How much is Etsy worth? $65? $70? Maybe $75? Try $8 billion, Fool! Because of course we're talking market cap, not share price. And if you know the market cap, you know the price tag of the business. And if you know that, you might just beat Emily Flippen on this week's Market Cap Game Show!
It's now been two years since David picked "5 Winners in a Thinking World" here on the podcast. Those stocks were indeed winning after one year, but how have they fared to date against the stiff competition of a raging bull market? Then, continuing this month's theme of Conscious Capitalism, we bring you a conversation with the remarkable CEO of Middleby Corp., Selim Bassoul.
One of the earliest articulations of what we now call the "stakeholder theory" in business management comes from author and academic Ed Freeman. This delightful conversation from the floor of the Conscious Capitalism 2018 Conference in Dallas, TX will leave you loving business, hating chickens, and looking forward to the next generation of leaders.
Were you taught that the goal of business is simply to maximize shareholder value? Think again! Today David looks at the future of business with two of of the brightest luminaries in the Conscious Capitalism movement, Raj Sisodia and Alexander McCobin. Taped on location at the Conscious Capitalism 2018 convention in Dallas, TX.

Does the company where you work, or in which you're thinking of investing, have a rich culture?

Are you a “Visionary” who sees the world from 10,000 feet, eyes on the future? Are you an “Operator” who loves to break down barriers and get stuff done? Maybe you’re a “Processor” who creates frameworks and craves efficiency. Or a “Synergist” able to set your ego aside and pull the team together. According to our guest, Les McKeown, each of these types are essential to building and scaling a successful business, but each is particularly suited to a different stage of a company’s lifecycle. Getting the right balance and working to move your business through its growth stages is key to building Predictable Success.
Come on down! You're the next contestant on The Market Cap Game Show! Can you claim the #IBeatMatt hashtag bragging rights? Join the fun as we endeavor not to under or over-estimate the size of 10 stocks from David's Supernova Universe.
