CREATED FINANCIAL CAPITAL

The FUNDING that is needed to run anything ... from personal life to the business of a large corporation, or a city or a country.
Money / Profit growth / GDP growth / Stock Prices / Cost push inflation / Wages chasing prices

STOCK MARKETS GO TOP
Stock markets
Stock markets have been an essential enabler for the growth of the modern economy. The stock market and the joint stock company made it possible for people with ideas to be funded by people with money in an efficient way. The first stock markets emerged in the 18th century and were an essential part of the ecosystem than made the industrial revolution possible.

The manner in which the prices of different sections of the stock market have moved is an indication of key structural changes in the created economy.
While people and nature change very slowly, the created economy can change very fast with a wide range of consequences, both good and bad.

The graphic is a help in remembering something about how finance works ... but it is not very helpful in figuring out how to measure the performance of finance in 'making the world a better place. It is more than anything else a teaching aid.
What is needed, more than anything else is a way to measure BOTH the money dimension of the investment and the impact on human capital, natural capital and all the elements of people built capital.

Presentation about Impact Investing by CASE at the Fuqua Business School ... Presentations only ... no text
This is a beautiful presentation, very clear and quite comprehensive ... BUT ... I have two issues with the message or content.

(1) In the end a better world is going to be not a result of how much MONEY is being made, but how much GOOD is being done. In the end the IMPACT described here is still constrained by how much money can be made! and,

(2) the system for measuring money performance (double entry accounting) is very powerful for money profit and wealth accumulation ... but the state of measurement for IMPACT is primitive (essentially anecdotes and questionnaires) that are expensive and very difficult to validate. We need multi-dimension impact accounting or true value accounting to get to a better way of numbering for everything that is going on, and that does not simplify back to the uni-dimensional idea that money growth economics must be at the center of everything! ..........

THE BUSINESS AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION ... Better-Business-Better-World-Executive-Summary-2017
From the executive summary: Over the past 30 years, the world has seen huge social improvements and technological progress. We have experienced unprecedented economic growth and lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. We’re benefiting from a life-changing digital revolution that could help solve our most pressing social and environmental challenges. Yet despite these successes, our current model of development is deeply flawed.
TPB observation: The commission has a lot right, but ignores the idea that better metrics would make a huge difference to decision making and the speed that better behavior by major organizations achieved!

The Business and Sustainable Development Commission was launched in Davos in January 2016. It brings together leaders from business, finance, civil society, labour, and international organisations, with the twin aims of mapping the economic prize that could be available to business if the UN Sustainable Development Goals are achieved, and describing how business can contribute to delivering these goals.
