Not the Sort of Thing I Expect to See in Forbes

But this article sounds an awful lot like eco-socialism:
Capitalism has generated massive wealth for some, but it’s devastated the planet and has failed to improve human well-being at scale.


Corporate capitalism is committed to the relentless pursuit of growth, even if it ravages the planet and threatens human health

We need to build a new system: one that will balance economic growth with sustainability and human flourishing.
Personally, I would not be impressed with the article, it's advocacy for a sort of techno-utopian viewpoint common among Silicon Valley types who have their hand in your pockets, but I do not expect to see this in Forbes magazine.

It's significance is that it appears to indicate a shift in the Overton Window.
