The way we organize our economy and society creates increasing negative pressure on people and the planet leading to depletion of resources, collapse of services provided by nature, increased inequality and loss of social cohesion. We are experiencing a exhaustion of economic, social, political and environmental systems, in a dynamic that feeds back, caused by the way the predominant economic system is structured. The system is driven by 3 interconnected factors: the way business operates, the culture and narrative about business and consumption, and how economic, political and legal systems are structured.
