Eight Principles of a Regenerative Economy

Our regenerative story starts with a single core idea: The universal patterns and principles the cosmos uses to build stable, healthy, and sustainable systems throughout the real world can and must be used as a model for economic-system design. We then distill our research into a pattern of key interconnected principles that underlie systemic health and collectively represent the eight principles or qualities of a Regenerative Economy.

How Universal Principles And Patterns Will Shape Our New Economy

Today’s greatest challenge is to address the root cause of our systemic crises – today’s dominant (neoliberal) economic paradigm and the financial system that fuels it and rules it – by transitioning to a more effective economic system design that is regenerative and therefore sustainable over the long term.

The universal patterns and principles nature uses to build stable, healthy, and sustainable systems throughout the real world can and must be used as a model for a new design of our economic system and the financial system that fuels it.
