The Divine Right of Capital shows how the corporate mandate to maximize returns to shareholders is out of step with democratic and free-market ideals. Marjorie Kelly's aim is to start a dialogue about the core problem of capitalism. The symptoms range from bloated CEO pay, sweatshops, and speculative excess to stagnant wages, corporate welfare, and environmental indifference. All spring from a single source: the mandate to maximize returns to shareholders. In major public corporations -- where there is little reason to so favor shareholders -- this mandate amounts to property bias, which is akin to racial or gender bias. It arises from the unconscious belief that property owners, or wealth holders, matter more than others. The system upholding this belief she calls economic aristocracy.
