A Change Maker’s Guide to Economic Paradigms

We are in the midst of a collapsing economic paradigm. This is evident in the widespread wealth inequality, absence of strong civic institutions, corrosive infusion of money into our broken democracy, and a deteriorated environment ravaged by a profound blindness to our impacts on the larger world.

As Change Makers, it is our job to understand the patterns of economic systems so we can participate in the creation of the next economy — one that must embody ecological principles if we are to survive on the Earth.

I want to help you understand:

How economic paradigms come into being;

The role of financial capital in driving boom-bust cycles; and

The ascension of a new paradigm that pulls society out of collapse.

We Change Makers need to understand this entire process if we want to transition to a sustainable form of civilization in the coming decades.
