Alternative models in business management & investment
New business models and investment opportunities for entrepreneurs, hybrid models and future sustainable models. The financial world has become more and more virtual and dominated by the sole value of money and profit. It has lost touch with underlying economic reality and, at the same time, with the basic ethical values which are a condition for ensuring that major economic and social imbalances are compensated for and that the Common Good is actually pursued.

Zermatt Summit's insight:

Antonin Pujos, Secretary General of the Zermatt Summit explains why the pursuit of the Common Good is a demanding exercise: Why making sure that the common sense prevails at all times and at all levels for the purpose of both developing a common vision of a common future and of translating it into collective and individual action is very difficult.

Vincent Thomas's curator insight, August 25, 2013 8:11 AM

Interesting piece but - the concept of “barefoot banking” perpetuates the misconception that credit unions are “poor peoples’ banks” when what we really need is “community banks”. Yes, the poorest people will suffer the most at the hands of predatory lenders but the whole community benefits from fair, ethical, safe and affordable financial services.

More importantly, credit unions that don’t serve the whole community will never make the kind of impact that’s needed.
