FISHING WITH DYNAMITE is the true story of how corporations and Wall Street — with their obsession with short term profits — are blowing up American capitalism, and the role we all play in putting it back together. The film exposes the destructive effects of maximizing shareholder value capitalism and celebrates stakeholder companies that meet the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, investors, and the community and environment.
FISHING WITH DYNAMITE, produced in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the Institute for Business in Society, features interviews with professors, authors, and CEO’s, including Robert Reich, economist, professor, author, and political commentator; Arthur Brooks, former president of the conservative think tank the American Enterprise Institute; Jim Collins, author of “Good to Great,” Bethany McLean, author of “The Smartest Guys in the Room,” R. Edward Freeman, Darden professor and father of stakeholder theory, and features companies and CEOs from The Container Store (Melissa Reiff and Kip Tindell), Eastman Chemical (Mark Costa), Luke’s Lobster (Luke Holden), Whole Foods (John Mackey and Walter Robb), and Costco Warehouse (Jim Sinegal), among others.
