Co-creating the Regenerative Economy.
Understand. Inspire. Engage.
The Capital Institute is a non-partisan think tank launched in 2010 by former JPMorgan Managing Director John Fullerton.
Our mission is to explore and effect the economic transition to a more just, regenerative, and thus sustainable way of living on this earth through the transformation of finance. From analyzing the economic crisis to socially responsible investing to fossil fuel divestment to sustainable business models such as cooperatives, we seek to illuminate how our economy can operate as a restorative rather than a coercive agent.
John’s latest post was adapted from a chapter he wrote for John G. Taft’s new book, A Force for Good: How Enlightened Finance Can Restore Faith in Capitalism, published just this past week by Palgrave Macmillan.
John recently traveled to China to share his views on regenerative investing in natural capital.
In his essay “Limits to Investment” John says that checks on material consumption will require constraints on aggregate investment.
On the heels of our fifth anniversary, we are excited to share with you our second annual report: Co-Creating the Regenerative Economy.
Be immersed in the stories of the enterprises of an emerging, truly sustainable economy. Visit our Field Guide to Investing in a Regenerative Economy microsite.
Read our case study on Evergreen Direct Investing (EDI), an investment architecture that offers pension investors an alternative to the Wall Street investing paradigm. The investing method is both a reengineering and bold repurposing of time-tested techniques.
