THEORY OF CHANGE

SITUATION

The past decades 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 does not lead to positive outcomes for large portions of our society. This pervasive ideology has been used to:

  • Usurp our political systems

  • Justify extensive environmental degradation

  • Break apart the bonds of our households & communities


ThIS extensive proliferation has been enabled by several forms of “key infrastructure”  

 

Think Tanks

Engaging in research, policy development, strategy, and setting a broader agenda.

 

Politicians

Adopting it as their economic and social platform.

 

Academia

Widely adopting it as foundational to the study of economics.

 

Technology

Enabling significant concentration of resources and power.

 

Public Policy

Cementing market centrism.
 

 

Massive Investment

From business and finance interests.
