The book, Karaoke Capitalism: Management for Mankind co-authored with Kjell A Nordstrom, is a new manifesto for how to make it in the world of Karaoke Capitalism. Individuals with endless choices dominate the karaoke economy. The trouble for business is that the karaoke club is also home to institutionalized imitation. Copycats abound.

FUNKY BUSINESS: Talent makes capital dance - Jonas Ridderstrale launches a manifesto for the new world of business. Forget what has come before; this is the future for organizations and leaders. We are all condemned to freedom. We cannot delegate the understanding of what drives tomorrow's society to politicians and executives. The funky future is here and now it's all up to you. The new world is different. Forget the old world order. Forget what you knew yesterday. The revolutionary reality is that 1.3 kilograms of brain holds the key to all our futures. Competitive advantage comes from being different. Increasingly, difference comes form the way people think rather than what organizations make. Today, the only thing that makes capital dance is talent. In such times we cannot have business as usual--we need funky business. Technology, institutions and values are being subverted and overturned. They are the triad, the inter--linked drivers of change, transforming each other and creating a global village of turbulance, tribes and fusion. We are deregulating life for ourselves and our children. Whether you like it or not, we are all condemned to freedom-- the freedom to choose.
