Transforming Banks

The history of banking is at the center of cultural evolution from Sumerian tallies of agricultural debts, to the Medici, all the way to the current Global Masters of Capital. But banks today are being called to evolve into more democratic institutions that can foster and nurture human community rather than continuing to prioritize private profits above public interest. Our guests today discuss how some banks are already taking breakthrough roles in stabilizing communities and fostering well-being returns on civic investments. Notable activist banker Kat Taylor, Chair of Beneficial State Bank, joins Foresight Lab directors Ed Quevedo and Mackinzee Macho and ecological economist Mark Anielski to discuss the changing foundations of banking and the transformative prospects that offers.
