Our Mission

The mission of the New Economy Coalition (formerly the New Economics Institute) is to build a New Economy that prioritizes the well-being of people and the planet. 

The stakes are high. Climate change is accelerating. Inequality is at historic levels. The financial industry continues to teeter on the brink of collapse, threatening the global economy. And all the while, our political system has proven incapable of effecting the structural transformations necessary to — quite literally — save the planet. The time is now for a new approach, a New Economy.
