“When would we know our financial system is working?” is the question underlying Long Finance’s goal to improve society’s understanding and use of finance over the long-term. In contrast to the short-termism that defines today’s economic views the Long Finance time-frame is roughly 100 years.
The Long Finance initiative offers an innovative approach to long-term financial thinking. Its core objectives are to:
•expand frontiers – develop methodologies to solve financial problems;
•change systems – provide evidence-based examples of how financing methods work and don’t work;
•deliver services – including conferences and training using collaborative tools;
•build communities – through meeting, networking and events.
