Resource: New Economy Working Group
September 14, 2015
The Institute for Policy Studies, YES! Magazine, the Living Economies Forum, New Economy Coalition, Institute for Local Self-Reliance and the Democracy Collaborative, plus individual member Gus Speth have joined together to launch the New Economy Working Group to put forward a bold vision and implementing strategy for a New Economy that works for people and the living systems on which their well-being depends.
The mission of the NEWGroup is to support the articulation and popularization of a bold, coherent, holistic, compelling, and accessible vision of unrealized economic possibility.
Rather than begin with what is currently politically feasible, we begin with what is necessary for a viable human future. It is a choice between accepting the future toward which we are currently headed or committing ourselves to making the necessary feasible.
