The economy must not just be about money

In the modern consumer capitalist system, profit is placed above all other concerns. Delivering ever greater returns for shareholders becomes the be all and end all of a company, with other considerations only taken into account in terms of how they affect that singular goal.

This compelling article makes the case that such a view is outdated and must be revised if we are to protect the planet we live on as well as our relative economic prosperity. It argues for a holistic view of economic functions, where it is not just money that drives change, but a concern for everything that makes up a better way of life.
