    Welcome to our blog, “The Future of Finance”. Here you will find expert opinions and analysis on the critical challenges of finance in the context of forging a just and sustainable economic system. We will highlight fundamental issues requiring long-term attention, and we will provide commentary on the financial events and issues of the day looked at through a Capital Institute lens. I will be doing regular blogs, and will be joined by our brain trust of Directors, Advisors, and guest bloggers. We welcome your submissions on topics relevant to our work.
