Can businesses have both endless growth and be fair and sustainable? Is it possible to conceive an economic model that’s not tainted by our current financial system?
Christian Felber’s initiative ‘Economy for the Common Good’ started in 2010 and is now supported by more than 2000 businesses from 40 countries. It aims to create change by awarding legal benefit points to socially responsible companies and encourage their pursuit of the common good. This model can operate within our current legislation framework and aims to flourish within an ethical and truly liberal market economy. The final goal is to shift the fundamental rules of the game from competition to cooperation. At the RSA, Christian Felber shows how we can achieve this systemic shift.
