Infographic: Inclusive Ownership Funds

Democratic Ownership

Recently, the Financial Times launched a full scale assault on the idea of “inclusive ownership funds,” containing, amidst much scaremongering, an analytic error so egregious 82 distinguished economists, including Thomas Piketty, Mariana Mazzucato, Kate Raworth, Yanis Varoufakis, and Ha-Joon Chang, felt compelled to correct it in a public response. While we’ve already, with our friends at Common Wealth, published a concise overview of the ownership funds framework for a more democratic economy, we felt it’d be prudent to offer a more succinct introductory overview in graphic form, especially as more and more of the business press is recognizing that this is an idea that will need to be reckoned with.
