WHAT WE VALUE >

“In recent times our economic life has begun to require more of us than we are ethically, religiously, capable of achieving…Study the sociology of the present day and you will find: The social conflicts are largely due to the fact that, as economic systems expanded into world economy, it became more and more needful to be altruistic…At the same time, in their way of thinking, human beings did not get beyond egoism and therefore kept interfering with the course of things in a clumsy, selfish way.” Rudolf Steiner, Economics: The World as One Economy

January 2011

Happy New Year!  We are so excited to kick off another great year here at RSF. We wrapped up 2010 with some great reflections on investment and our current financial system. Don Shaffer contemplates a “Wall Street Wake-Up Call” and we look at some interesting events bringing together the impact investment community. Also check out the great kudos received from our friends at B Corp!

From an economic standpoint, from the perspective of how we work in the world to meet each other’s material needs, such fiction is used to justify how one person can benefit from another’s sacrifice and how we can continue to consume and waste nature for the sake of undue profit…Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.

RSF Discusses Slow Money Investment

The Slow Money movement has received some great coverage in a mainstream financial industry publication.  A recent InvestmentNews article discusses the growing market for small, local, and deliberate investments intended to keep capital flowing through local economies…Read more in the RSF Newsroom.

Don Shaffer Named B Corp MVP!

Our very own President & CEO Don Shaffer was given the MVP award at this year’s B Corporation Champions’ Retreat in recognition for his consistent and significant support of all B Lab initiatives.  In honor of all of his work, Don was awarded a Roman helmet to symbolize how he’s gone to battle for B Lab…Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.
