Whole Person Economy transforms economic systems so that they serve the highest expression of the individual in harmony with society and a thriving planet.

Together with our members and partners, we create coherent and actionable alternatives to outdated economic ideas, work to prototype and scale new approaches, and drive resources to individuals and organizations that integrate holistic economics, finance, and business practices.

WHY WE NEED A WHOLE PERSON ECONOMY

 

The past sixty years have seen a massive proliferation of economic concepts and practices that can best be summarized as free-market fundamentalism; the notion that the highest outcomes for society (freedom, prosperity, wellbeing) are best achieved through extensive focus on free-markets.

However, exclusive focus on growth, consumption, and unbounded free markets has been historically proven to fail at producing beneficial outcomes for the majority. This pervasive ideology has been used to:

  • Compromise family and community bonds

  • Cause extensive environmental degradation

  • Usurp our political systems

We believe that economic systems that fail to serve the highest expression of the individual in harmony with society and ecology are not only ineffectual, but dangerous to our long-term biological, social, and economic well-being.
