ISSUE 10 | CIVILIZING THE ECONOMY
CATALYZING the Conversation | In this issue, we explore the design of market exchanges in terms of capital flows and consider capital as a form of energy with restorative power. Capital is, quite literally, the lifeblood of communities. Financial systems are designed to act as arteries flowing capital to energize and restore communities, commerce and culture and the biospheric systems upon which all three depend. Our current system is not enabling this. It is a system that needs to be re-designed as well as reformed. Financial systems that enable access to capital and encourage its wise use are essential for the common good.
