The founder of Economy for the Common Good proposes a thorough overhaul of our capitalist system. In the world he envisions “companies still earn profits. But they are driven not by revenues and costs, but by their Common Good Balance Sheet.”


Ethical Systems; Business Integrity through Research

Markets may not be (completely) moral unless companies, their leaders and employees are. “Ethical Systems”, says the mission statement of this non-profit, “makes the world’s best research available and accessible, for free, to anyone interested in improving the ethical culture and behavior of an organization.”
