Economic systems and markets are simultaneously beneficial and harmful forces in the world. However, it’s eminently possible for economic systems to provide for all aspects of the individual and society. Not only through financial stability, but also by engendering purpose in people’s lives, promoting healthy lifestyles, and enabling the full expression of the individual. To achieve this goal, our personal values must guide our economic activities. A Whole Person Economy provides a deeply human perspective on the changing landscape of business and economics, exploring how these topics are informed by personal values, spiritual practice, and connection to a higher purpose.
This talk was recorded at CoCap 2017 at Impact Hub Oakland, in Oakland California, on October 9-10, 2017.
