Report / 1st October 2012

Report / 1st October 2012

Part 1 of the report Financing the Global Sharing Economy demonstrates how systems that facilitate 'economic sharing' are increasingly being eroded by policies that widen inequalities and leave families in a state of poverty or destitution across the world. The result is a silent humanitarian emergency that should be treated as a foremost priority by the international community.

Report / 1st October 2012

Part 3 of the report 'Financing the Global Sharing Economy' introduces the 10 policies that could enable the international community to mobilise more than $2.8 trillion within a short number of years, money that governments should use to strengthen and scale up the sharing economy both nationally and globally.

Report / 1st October 2012

Report / 1st October 2012

This section of the report Financing the Global Sharing Economy makes the case for redistributing the IMF's assets through its Special Drawing Rights facility and gold sales.

Report / 1st October 2012

This section of the report Financing the Global Sharing Economy argues that civil society must step up their advocacy for carbon taxes. With time for effective action to tackle CO2 emissions fast running out, carbon taxes remain an important policy tool for reducing climate change and financing mitigation and adaptation programs.

Report / 1st October 2012

This section of the report Financing the Global Sharing Economy argues that debt cancellation is an essential prerequisite for ensuring a more equitable sharing of global financial resources, and the absolute and unconditional cancellation of unjust debts should constitute an urgent priority for the international community.

Report / 1st October 2012

This section of the report Financing the Global Sharing Economy argues that a dramatic change of paradigm is needed if rich nations and global institutions are to stop forcing developing countries to liberalise their economies through unfair trade rules.

Article / 31st August 2012

What would the world look like if money embodied our values, if the best business decision was the best decision for society, and if wealth was defined by how much we give, not how much we have? Charles Eisenstein shared his insights during a workshop attended by STWR's Adam Parsons.

Report / 27th June 2012

If world leaders and policymakers are paying merely lip service to the unfolding human and environmental catastrophe, is the growing power of the people's voice sufficient to challenge the immense forces that stand in the way of creating a just and sustainable world?

Blog / 27th June 2012

Almost a week since the Rio+20 Earth Summit ended, civil society is coming to terms with the ‘epic failure’ of global leaders to agree meaningful action for addressing the worsening planetary and social crises.

Blog / 27th June 2012

Following the ‘hoax summit' and failure of political leadership at Rio+20, it is clear that the responsibility for change rests with ordinary, engaged citizens to forge a united and informed world public opinion that is stronger than any government or vested interest.
