Behavioural Capitalism is a model of capitalism in which human behaviour becomes the central factor for the production and provision of goods and services. In isolated cases, and this should be noted, there are already further attempts to give the new era a verbalized form, of which in particular Shoshana Zuboff’s concept of SurveillanceCapitalism is to be mentioned, but this, and forgive me this word, does not go far enough to sufficiently explain the corresponding global changes and also concentrates strongly on possible negative aspects of a raging development, which can be both a blessing and a curse, the truth usually lies in the middle.
Behaviour means acting, tolerating as well as not acting. The processes can be conscious or unconscious. It is influenced and produced by stimuli. But now the conditions have changed, because technological development has led to new business models that have gained such an influence that they raise the question of whether they have long since developed into an independent form of capitalism, behavioral capitalism. This brings us to the central thesis of this paper, which is that new possibilities of behavioural skimming have turned the raw material into a factor of production and thus into a variant of capitalism in its own right. You can see this Video explaining what Behavioral Capitalism is.
Behavioral Capitalism concept was created by Andreas Herteux, a german economist, philosopher, publicist and author. Andreas Herteux founded Erich von Werner Society , a group dedicated to constantly analyze the global situation, arrange it, prepares it and designs appropriate models as well as theories for the representation of the reality. The Erich von Werner Society makes a significant contribution to the understanding of current and future world events.

Behavioural Capitalismis basedon the raw material and production factor behaviour, which is created by the reaction of the individual to stimuli. He must first win this by skimming. There have always been such attempts, but it was the technological progress driven by the change of times that made automated harvesting in large quantities possible.
Behavioural Capitalismhas therefore becomefirmly established, but without being perceived as such. State-of-the-art technology enables a never-before-seen embedding that can penetrate into the most intimate areas of the individual. A development that requires closer scrutiny and must not continueto take place in the shadows, for an unleashed Behavioural Capitalismwould be an even stronger force than Financial Capitalism ever was. He would be a means of domination. You can buy the book on Amazon : Behavioral Capitalism on Amazon – Direct Link(no affiliate).
The Erich von Werner Society assumes that the world is entering a new major period. These changes are because of or are accelerated by factors, which in combination and interaction with each other will trigger a new era: Change of the environment (e.g. due to climate change, resource exploitation, environmental degradation). Some of the world’s most threatening problems : Malaria: Malaria is a major health risk in tropical, developing countries, such as Kenya and the Congo. Approximately 3.2 billion individuals are vulnerable to Malaria – this is half of the world’s population. Young children are the most susceptible, and about 445,000 people died from Malaria in 2016. Although women make up approximately half of the population, there have historically been social barriers to economic and personal freedom for women. While much has been done to alleviate this, there is still quite a way to go, especially in the developing world. Women are disempowered from a young age, when they are held back from attending school for financial reasons or because of the perception that their education does not matter. Globally, women still earn less than men, and women with children tend to earn even less. This is a waste of potential and hampers progress on obstacles to global prosperity.
