Finance for future communities: equity partnerships and investment unions

Sep 10, 2011 Comments Off by

This week we are featuring two articles from Fleeing Vesuvius which explore ethical, equitable approaches to finance. Tim Helweg-Larsen describes his recent attempt to establish an equity partnership in North Wales, based on the model described by James Pike and Chris Cook earlier in the book. Oscar Kjellberg draws on the example of Mondragon in order to examine the role which community bankers could perform as intermediaries between local stakeholders in the future.
