Creating a thriving, sustainable future through a new and inclusive system
It's no surprise to read that neoliberal capitalism isn't working for everyone. Never before has there been such a huge disparity in wealth. The disconnect between the richest and poorest in our global society has never been more extreme.
A chance to build something new that works for everyone.
Choosing stability over growth.
Despite huge technological change, human progress has remained relatively static over the last 50 years. And with a global pandemic, some suggest we're taking a step back. Rather, I believe the pandemic offers a golden opportunity to build upon an unprecedented adoption of technology, a rise in collective consciousness and a chance to reimagine our world better.
So, what is an inclusive economy?
The concept that growth will “trickle down” to the poor and most disadvantaged among us has been proven to be fundamentally flawed. Instead, we have learned that when we invest in making economies more equitable from the bottom up, or the middle class out, economic growth is likely to be better for everyone’s pocketbooks, for longer periods.
But while growth and equity are critical ingredients for a more inclusive economy, they direct us away from a more constructive and nuanced conversation about other elements of what makes an economy more inclusive, particularly for the poor and vulnerable.
What is an inclusive economy, and how do we know if we’re making progress towards it, globally, nationally, locally and across our incredibly different contexts?
