    One part of dealing with this systemic inequality is to take the maximization of private profit out of business (or at least demoting it from Priority #1). The Post Growth Institute is currently developing the Not-for-Profit World model, which changes the fundamental rules and ways of doing business. The new generation of not-for-profit enterprises are entrepreneurial, innovative and do make profits, but rather than privatizing those profits, they recycle them back into their work and/or projects that benefit the community. In contrast to traditional non-profit organizations that are dependent on philanthropy and volunteers, not-for-profit enterprises are thriving businesses whose employees are paid fair wages, but profits (i.e.- money made in excess of providing for operational costs) are not privatized. The book we’re working on, “How on Earth? Flourishing in a Not-for-Profit World by 2050”, will explain why this model is viable, sustainable and even inevitable.

    We’re talking about businesses and an economy fit for purpose.

    Thanks!
