On Wednesday, May 21, 2014 in Zagreb, Croatia, the new set of essays by Steve Young, Global Executive Director of the Caux Round Table ("CRT"), titled Moral Capitalism II, was formally introduced at a public lecture in Zagrab hosted by the National Forum and the Croatian Manager’s Association ("CROMA"). The book was translated into Croatian by CROMA, which in 2006, had previously translated Moral Capitalism into Croatian, as well.

An E-book version of Moral Capitalism II in English will be published later this year.

Moral Capitalism II covers the following topics: CSR and Public Goods; The Social Ecosystem of CSR; Contribution of Markets – Pricing; Why Did Wall Street Collapse in 2008?; Moral Capitalism and the Great Financial Meltdown of 2008; Is There An Agency Problem?; Sustaining the Agency Problem – Anxiety; Exacerbating the Agency Problem – Money; Agency Problem Adds to Moral Hazard; Overcoming the Agency Problem – Values; I/Thou; Friendship; Do We need Wall Street?; Dodd Frank Reforms – Not Enough; and The Existential Grounds for Moral Capitalism.

While in Zagreb, Steve also spoke at the private university for law and finance, Effectus, and met with leaders of the Croatian Employers Association. He was interviewed by leading newspapers and on the government TV network. Young called on President Josipovic, who agreed to become an advisor to the CRT. Young also met with the Rector and Vice-Rector for Curriculum of the Catholic University of Croatia.

The National Forum has proposed sustainable development goals for Croatia, which reflect the CRT Principles for Business and Principles for Government. The Forum has suggested that those who seek and obtain elected office subscribe to an oath of stewardship commitment, exactly the same in jurisprudence and ethics as the CRT Principles for Government.
