9781422171646: Fixing the Game: Bubbles, Crashes, and What Capitalism Can Learn from the NFL

American capitalism is in dire straits, caught in a perilous pattern of increasing volatility, decreasing investor returns, and ongoing bad behavior by executives. And it’s getting worse. Since the turn of the twenty-first century, we’ve seen two massive value-destroying market meltdowns and a string of ethics breaches, including accounting scandals, options-backdating schemes, and the subprime mortgage debacle.

Just what is going on here? Is it the inevitable decline of the American economy? Is it the new normal in a technology-enabled global marketplace? Or is it possible that the very theories we’ve embraced to underpin our capital markets are actually producing these crises?

In Fixing the Game, Roger Martin reveals the culprit behind the sorry state of American capitalism: our deep and abiding commitment to the idea that the purpose of the firm is to maximize shareholder value. This theory has led to a massive growth in stock-based compensation for executives and, through this, to a naive and wrongheaded linking of the real market the business of designing, making, and selling products and services with the expectations market the business of trading stocks, options, and complex derivatives. Martin shows how this tight coupling has been engineered and lays out its results: a single-minded focus on the expectations market that will continue driving us from crisis to crisis unless we act now.

Using the National Football League as his primary example, Martin illustrates that it is possible to take a much more thoughtful and effective approach than we now do to the intersection of the real and the expectations markets and to governance in general in the capital markets. Martin shows how we can act to end the destructive cycle, including:

Restructuring executive compensation to focus entirely on the real market, not the expectations market
Rethinking the meaning of board governance and role of board members
Reining in the power of hedge funds and monopoly pension funds

Concise, hard-hitting, and entertaining, Fixing the Game advocates seizing American capitalism from the jaws of the expectations market and planting it firmly in the real market and it presents the steps we must take now to do so.

About the Author:

Roger Martin is dean of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and a professor of strategic management at the school. He authored The Responsibility Virus, The Opposable Mind, The Design of Business and many articles in leading business publications including Harvard Business Review, BusinessWeek, Fast Company, and Barron's.

Review:

excellent book” The Guardian

All business leaders, not just the one who wants to be chief executive of the American company” should take notice.” Professor Martin makes the point particularly vividly, observing that the way we currently reward corporate C.E.O.’s is roughly equivalent to rewarding football teams for exceeding expectations rather than winning games.” The New York Times Economix blog

"As Roger Martin details in his brilliant, Fixing the Game: Bubbles, Crashes, and What Capitalism can Learn From the NFL, CEO pay exploded when companies adopted reward systems based upon maximizing shareholder value.” Huffington Post

what the reader gets in Fixing the Game is deeply thoughtful business commentary with an excellent marketing case study to boot, namely the NFL” Graziadio Business Review

One of the few business school leaders to confront the disgrace of business leadership through the economic crisis, Martin is also a big football fan, and draws provocative lessons from his enthusiasm for the sport.” - CBS News

Named the Best Management Book of 2011 by strategy+business magazine

Fixing the Game is a passionate, timely, and incisive look at how today’s capitalist system, with its commitment to shareholder value, is leading to bubbles and crashes. He presents some tough-minded solutions.” The Globe and Mail

American capitalism hangs in the balance, writes Martin. His book gives a clear explanation as to why this is so and what should be done to save it.” Brilliant new book ” - Forbes.com

His conclusions have a global relevance” Financial Times

recommend Roger Martin's new book, Fixing the Game, which explores the demands of Wall Street vs. the common sense decisions of Main Street Martin is clear where successful CEOs and their Boards need to focus -- and that's on the actual game on the real field, not the one played by the bookies.” Huffington Post

very accessible text with suggestions for reform that will improve both authenticity and the bottom line.” - Publisher’s Weekly

a lively, intricate but accessible argument, neatly stitched together with references to the NFL and other sports when analogies are helpful.” - Globe & Mail

it often offers the additional feel-good fillip of a practical path toward improvement. It is a universe of engaging stories and ultimately uncontentious outcomes -- think the wildly popular oeuvre of Malcolm Gladwell.” - Reuters

Roger Martin has written a book that is at once original, insightful, and inspirational. With his tell-it-as-it-is’ bluntness, he chronicles the failures of modern-day capitalism and offers clear and realistic policy recommendations for fixing the game’ and building a better world for investors. If you enjoy wit and seek wisdom, this is the book for you.”
John C. Bogle, founder and former chief, The Vanguard Group

We’ve gone from an economy based on making things to one based on making things up. Wall Street has been remodeled as a casino in which the expectations market, reflected in stock prices, has become more important than the real market in which real factories are built, real products are developed and sold, and real dollars show up on the bottom line. Roger Martin offers a riveting account of how the expectations game is beginning to destroy the real game, threatening the future of American capitalism. Through his brilliant analysis of the NFL (which will entrance even those who don’t follow the market), he shows us how we can get back to the real game of building for the present and the future. Fixing the Game is a must-read for all who care about business being a positive agent for change in the world. And that should be all of us.”
Arianna Huffington, cofounder and Editor-in-Chief, The Huffington Post

Fixing the Game is an essential book, one that should be read by leaders in the business community and financial regulators worldwide. Martin identifies the insidious trap that can so easily seduce entrepreneurs and CEOs the temptation to simply trade value rather than create it and provides clear, compelling advice on how to keep focused on the real game of creating and satisfying customers, running a business legally and ethically, and staying true to a well-thought-out real-world’ strategy.”
Nandan Nilekani, Chairman, Unique Identification Authority of India, and former CEO, Infosys Technologies Limited

Fixing the Game artfully links theory and practice, and reminds us that getting both right is important if we are going to fix capitalism. Roger Martin asks provocative questions about what constitutes good management, and forces the reader to consider the ways in which elegant logic or a compelling theory actually undermines commonsense business practice. And along the way he identifies changes in regulation, business, and governance that will realign private incentives with the public good.”
Judith Samuelson, Executive Director, Business and Society Program, the Aspen Institute
