Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer ask, why do we collectively create results body wants? Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our ecomic logic and operating system from an obsolete ego-system focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole.
