A World in Trouble: Capitalists Call For Market Revolutions

A World in Trouble: Capitalists Call For Market Revolutions | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

March 18, 2013 - CSRwire Talkback

'A World in Trouble: Capitalists Call For Market Revolutions' blog post by John Elkington.

The world must be in real trouble if even capitalists are beginning to call for “market revolutions.”

Peter Bakker, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, calls for a “revolution of capitalism.” What he means is that markets must learn how to value and manage multiple forms of capital, including the human, social and natural forms. Like-minded leaders include Sir Richard Branson (founder of the Virgin Group), Paul Polman (CEO of Unilever) and Jochen Zeitz (former CEO of German sportswear brand PUMA).

Old Order A Global “Suicide Pact”

We have been tracking this trend for some time. At our Breakthrough Capitalism Forum last year, speaker after speaker stressed that the inertia of that old economic order is now a massive constraint on the necessary system change. “The system is blind to potentially existential threats,” warned Jeremy Leggett, a leading solar energy entrepreneur. He argued that the current order is “dysfunctional almost to the point of being suicidal.”

Nor is he the only one to have reached this conclusion. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has also stressed that our economic mindset and models increasingly look like “a global suicide pact.” We “mined our way to growth,” he said. “We burned our way to prosperity. We believed in consumption without consequences.”...  http://www.csrwire.com/blog/posts/763-a-world-in-trouble-capitalists-call-for-market-revolutions

Balance of economic power will shift dramatically over the next 50 years

Balance of economic power will shift dramatically over the next 50 years | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

The balance of economic power is expected to shift dramatically over the next half century, with fast-growing emerging-market economies accounting for an ever-increasing share of global output, according to a new OECD report.

Divergent long-term growth patterns lead to radical shifts in the relative size of economies. The United States is expected to cede its place as the world's largest economy to China, as early as 2016. India’s GDP is also expected to pass that of the United States over the long term. Combined, the two Asian giants will soon surpass the collective economy of the G7 nations. Fast-ageing economic heavyweights, such as Japan and the euro area, will gradually lose ground on the global GDP table to countries with a younger population,  like Indonesia and Brazil (see chart).

New Participatory Guide: LINKing Smallholders: A guide on inclusive business models | Systemic Innovation & Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

CIAT’s research area Linking Farmers to Markets, is pleased to announce the release of a new participatory guide to inclusive business models, a project that has been developed in a in close collaboration with the Sustainable Food Lab, IIED, CRS and Rainforest Alliance and with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The LINK Methodology aims to promote the engagement of small holder producers with modern markets by guiding a multi-stakeholder process of shaping or upgrading inclusive trading relationships with the potential to create win-win situation for all actors involved. For that reason, four key tools are designed to kick off, implement and conclude a participatory innovation process in the iterative manner of a “design-test-check-act” cycle.
