#001 Regenerative Economics: A conversation with former Wall Street executive John Fullerton
May 18, 2017
Welcome to the first episode of Rescope Radio, featuring an extensive and inspiring conversation with John Fullerton, the former Wall Street executive who became the founding President of the Capital Institute, a non-profit organisation working to change our economic and financial systems. Hosted by Rescope Project Director, Anthony James.
John is a former Managing Director of 'the old' JP Morgan, as he puts it, and now founding President of the Capital Institute, a non-profit organisation in the US dedicated to bringing about new, regenerative economic and financial systems.
Given these systems are fundamental to the civilisational crisis we find ourselves in, and therefore how we need to deal with it, this is vital work, and a revealing conversation.
John draws deeply on systems thinking, a broad range of other contemporary and ancient schools of thought, and a range of ‘real world’ case studies, impact investing and other experiments on the ground. All this features in his extensive speaking and writing, including in his white paper, Regenerative Capitalism: How Universal Principles and Patterns Will Shape Our New Economy.
Speaking with John was every bit as inspiring and enlightening as we thought it would be. So it’s our great pleasure to introduce him as our first guest on Rescope Radio.
