Changing Structural Context of our Economy by Jeffrey Hollender
Static Preview

Published on Jun 27, 2012

Recorded live at the New Economics Institute Strategies for a New Economy Conference on June 9, 2012, Seventh Generation and American Sustainable Business Council Co-Founder Jeffrey Hollender speaks about initiatives to transform business from being the source of problems for our economy to being part of the solution. "As the co-founder and chair of the American Sustainable Business Council, which is a group of 140,000 small and medium sized businesses, we're involved in public policy initiatives like the Jobs Bill to create a more level playing field and a better public policy environment for a new economy to emerge," says Hollender. "I know that in most instances, business doesn't operate in a particularly responsible, moral, or sustainable fashion -- and that is something we need to correct," he continues. "But we don't have jobs without business, so we need to figure out how to change the structural context of our economy in ways that encourages businesses to behave differently."

Static Preview
The Biote D'Or experience with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). It is a control system established in 2003 to authenticate the provenance of diamonds. After it became known in the late 1990s that warring parties were abusing the trade with rough diamonds to fund their conflicts, this initiative was founded to put an end to the sale of so called blood or conflict diamonds. Today, more than 49 countries are part of the Kimberley Process, the European Community being counted as one member. The members commit themselves to strict rules and regulations to verifiably track the legitimate provenance of each diamond. Further detailed information about the Kimberley Process here.

Uploaded on Nov 14, 2011

November 3, 2011 - Cambridge, MA
"Buy local," "buy green," "buy organic" . . . we cannot buy anything without considering its moral implications. How has consumption become suffused with right and wrong? How effective has the ethical-consumption movement been in changing market behavior?

Ideas Matter, a joint project of Boston Review and MIT's Political Science Department, is a lecture series that brings our writers together with other experts and practitioners for substantive debate on the challenges of our times.

How Free is the Free Market by Raj Patel
Static Preview

Uploaded on Jan 13, 2010

Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing, examines the concepts of freedom and liberty in relation to the free market economy. He suggests Nobel laureate Elinor Ostrom's notion of collaborative governance known as "the commons" may be a better alternative to resource management.
If economics is about choices, who gets to make them? Activist and academic Raj Patel says that prices often mislead us, and he reveals the "hidden costs" of goods. To demonstrate his argument that the free market and corporations distort price and value, Patel suggests that the true price of a hamburger would be $200 if we factor in the hidden environment and health costs.

ECO:nomics: Should Companies Only Focus on Profit? Michael Duke of Walmart
Static Preview

Walmart Chairman and Former CEO Michael T. Duke says Walmart looks at more than just corporate profits when it considers sustainability. He speaks at the ECO:comics conference in Santa Barbara, Calif.Published on Apr 3, 2014

Smaller environmental footprint will lead to greater profit in the long run is Mr. Duke's main point in this excerpt of ana interview  Environmental sustainability is a narrow focus of the term ignoring the social - people - and prosperity elements, both of which Walmart plays a big role with a considerable impact on citizens. Walmart and Sam's Club employs roughly 2.2 million people worldwide and is the largest private employer in the United States.

In April, top CEOs and investors, pioneering entrepreneurs, environmental experts and policy makers convene at ECO:nomics, The Wall Street Journal’s conference in Santa Barbara, to discuss and debate the most critical issues facing leaders who are driving change at the intersection of business and the environment. 

We will have large corporations with infrastructures that have a smaller ecological footoprint and institutional self-promotional statements and conferences such as ECO:nomics, but our future will remain unsustainable as the mind-set of what Dr. Chet Bowers refers to as "deep cultural assumptions that support the individualistic/industrial/consumer-dependent culture that is ecologically unsustainable" remains the driving force in our Society and at Walmart.
