Alternative Finance System Map | All Street

Alternative Finance System Map | All Street | The Social Life of Money | Scoop.it

As the current state of financial system matures and reaches the development plateau, new forms of finance powered by technological changes and higher social and environmental awareness slowly begin to arise and set up the basis of a very different financial system. The map depicts the fundamental reconfiguration of the existing financial system which is moving away from the current model of vertically-­integrated monoliths towards a financial ecosystem of firms that compete along different banking function, recreating a more distributed value chain of the industry. This alternative finance system was designed with the purpose to engage a debate and give a head start in mapping the new financial system that is currently emerging.

Realism about "Green Finance" ... in an Age of Financialization

Proposals for greening the economy necessarily involve the greening of finance as well. But how is a greener finance to be achieved? Activist strategies that fail to take stock of where finance is today in the wake of the 2007-08 breakdown -- and the struggles that are continuing to develop between neoliberalism and the commons -- are unlikely to succeed, and may actually do harm.
