As we come upon the 50th anniversary of Milton Friedman’s Shareholder primacy letter to the New York Times on September 13. 1970, we find our world and most if not all of its systems to a degree, crumbling. Climate crisis, pandemic woes, ever widening wage gap, demand that we create, reimagine the economy and the ecosystems around it. “Social justice must dictate our economic response”. Shifting to a stakeholder economy can get us to a solution. Nothing short of an “Impact Revolution” will do. Sir Ronald Cohen together with others in the impact ecosystem will tackle and share recommended solutions that each stakeholder group can implement. Impact Investing is critical to our success. If done correctly and collaboratively, we will rebuild a new and better world, one that is socially just and safe for our planet.Learn moreCurated Networking Events
