The responses to the last economic and financial crisis increased wealth and income inequalities, environmental degradation and financial instability. We believe the central guiding principle for political decision-making is resilience. We need to be prepared for crises, balancing efficiency with resilience. To avoid past mistakes, we aim to develop and disseminate transformative responses. By transformative we mean those plans generating structural reforms in the economic and financial system which promote and create the conditions for:

 

the achievement of long-term environmental sustainability, including the more or less complete decarbonisation of the global economy by 2050

 

 

a sustainable financial sector committed to the common good,

 

 

a significant reduction in inequalities of income and wealth within economies and between them

 

 

a redistribution of power away from wealthy elites towards democratic processes
