Stéphane Hessel

"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."

Stéphane Hessel, french Resistance fighter, survivor of Buchenwald concentration camp, diplomat, poet, essayist, and political activist (* 1917 - + 2013)

"The ECG is a viable alternative economy concept that is spreading in Europe and that asks the all-important question: What positive contribution does your organization bring to society? 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!"

Dr. Katrin Muff, Professor of Sustainability & Responsibility, Business School Lausanne

Otto Scharmer

"Putting Economy for the Common Good into practice is perhaps the most important challenge of our generation."

Otto Scharmer, Senior Lecturer, MIT; co-founder, MITx u.lab

Ha Vinh Tho

"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."

Ha Vinh Tho, Program Development Coordinator of the Gross National Happiness Centre in Bhutan

"Christian Felber is focusing on the most neglected part of our future: the new governance that will be necessary for a digital age."

Prof. Bernard Lietaer, civil engineer, economist, author (The Future of Money)

Kate Raworth

"Enterprise that is fit for the 21st century will be managed and measured by a far richer set of metrics than last century's companies. Economy for the Common Good is a pioneering example of how this can successfully be put into practice. This movement is proving that another way is possible, and thus is inspiring far wider ripples of transformation."

Kate Raworth, Economist and author of "Doughnout Economics"
