„Die gegenwärtige Wirtschaftsordnung ist eine Gefahr für die Demokratie, für den sozialen Frieden und die Menschenrechte. (...) Es ist wichtig sich zu engagieren für demokratische, solidarische und ökologische Alternativen. Die Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie ist ein vollständiges Alternativmodell, das all diese Werte vereint und bereits in der Praxis Fuß fasst.“

Stéphane Hessel, französischer Résistance-Kämpfer, Überlebender des Konzentrationslagers Buchenwald, Diplomat, Lyriker, Essayist und politischer Aktivist (*1917 - +2013)

"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

Economists who support the ECG

Stimmen der GWÖ

"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, Prof. in Sustainability & Responsibility, Business School Lausanne
