Book Description

Today we have a chance to construct instruments, institutions, and infrastructure to reverse the trajectory of a quickly deteriorating economic environment. In this volume, Adam Arvidsson and Nicolai Peitersen show wealth creation can be the result of a new kind of social production, and the motivation of continuous capital accumulation can exist in tandem with a desire to maximize our social impact. They argue that financial markets could become a central arena in which diverse ethical concerns are integrated into tangible economic valuations. Indeed, such a common standard has already emerged, linked to the spread of social media, and Arvidsson and Peitersen recommend how to build upon these developments to initiate a radical democratization of economic systems and the value decisions they generate.
