With each passing month, more business executives have been joining this unlikely crusade to save capitalism from itself.The loudest reform call yet from inside the system came last week from the Business Roundtable, which represents the chief executives of 192 of the nation's largest companies. Dalio, after all, founded Bridgewater Associates, one of the world's biggest hedge funds, and Dimon runs America's biggest bank.The skepticism is understandable, but it misses the larger political point: Corporate America fears the system is failing. As Dalio wrote, this is an "existential" moment. The guardians of capitalism seem to realize that they must respond to right-wing populists and left-wing progressives alike or face a worsening political crisis that is already hobbling the country.Today's corporate reformers share the same concern about saving a broken capitalist system as did President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the New Deal Era and President Theodore Roosevelt in the Progressive Era.This year's corporate revolt was previewed in "Can American Capitalism Survive?" a 2018 book by Washington Post writer Steven Pearlstein.
