"The current economic system is a threat to democracy, social peace and human rights. (...) It is important that we commit ourselves to alternatives for democracy, solidarity and the environment Economy for the Common Good is a comprehensive alternative model that combines all of these values and is already taking root in practice."
"Bhutan’s philosophy of Gross National Happiness is an attempt to implement an alternative development paradigm that is centered on the Happiness of all the people and Wellbeing of all life forms. One fundamental condition to implement GNH is to change the way we conduct our economy. The Economy for the Common Good is key to forstering such a society based on collaboration, altruism, compassion and mindfulness. It is not an utopia, it is the very condition of the survival of our planet."
Economists who support the ECG

The ECG Matrix is an awesome tool to self-evaluate! At Business School Lausanne, it highlighted important blind spots that allowed us to sharpen our mission and embrace entirely new actions. Possibly the most significant strategic impulse at BSL in the past decade!"
