Martin, an influential and prolific thinker who is dean of the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management, believes the way to "fix" capitalism is to change the way markets are regulated. No, he's not arguing for more rules. In fact, he's a harsh critic of Sarbanes-Oxley and its offspring, the 848-page Dodd-Frank. He thinks both laws are expensive overreactions to financial crises and solve little by trying to solve all.
Instead, Martin, who specializes in "integrative thinking" -- essentially a holistic approach to working through business problems -- wants our regulators to take a page from the National Football League. That's right, the association that oversees America's favorite big-dollar, helmet-smashing pastime.
