Publisher Description

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! A young entrepreneur makes the case that politics has no place in business, and sets out a new vision for the future of American capitalism.
There’s a new invisible force at work in our economic and cultural lives. It affects every advertisement we see and every product we buy, from our morning coffee to a new pair of shoes.  “Stakeholder capitalism” makes rosy promises of a better, more diverse, environmentally-friendly world, but in reality this ideology championed by America’s business and political leaders robs us of our money, our voice, and our identity.
 
Vivek Ramaswamy is a traitor to his class. He’s founded multibillion-dollar enterprises, led a biotech company as CEO, he became a hedge fund partner in his 20s, trained as a scientist at Harvard and a lawyer at Yale, and grew up the child of immigrants in a small town in Ohio. Now he takes us behind the scenes into corporate boardrooms and five-star conferences, into Ivy League classrooms and secretive nonprofits, to reveal the defining scam of our century.
 
The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people.  By mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we as Americans lack both.
 
This book not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, it offers a better way forward. America’s elites may want to sort us into demographic boxes, but we don’t have to stay there. Woke, Inc. begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be an American in 2021—a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope.

Arbaman ,

Beware the new religion.

Wokeism needs to die a timely death. Fortunately it’s getting a lot of blow back. This book did a great job of breaking down this mind virus.

Great overview

Vivek uses both direct personal examples and examples ripped directly from the headlines to show why corporate wokeness is just a smokescreen for corporate misbehavior.

My only critique would be I felt like all the solutions be outlines through out (national civic services, shoring up the business judgement rule) could have been better summarized and expounded upon at the end in their own separate chapter.

Literally garbage.

Do yourself a favor, and watch this guy on Fox News. If you’d still buy this book, you’re insane. This guy is a massive clown and does nothing but cry about a changing world.

Garbage.
