Though I dislike corporations and the concept of money because of conspicuous consumption and the other factors that you mentioned, I think there is some middle ground that can be reached. I remember a book stating that a successful paradigm shift for future businesses would be to not only hold an obligation to their shareholders but also to their stakeholders. The stakeholders being the local community, the environment, and anyone or anything else that feels the positive or negative ramifications of their actions. I think if businesses emphasized empathy over profit than workers would be less prone to dissatisfaction in the work-place, though obviously this can’t apply to all jobs.
