Ethical Markets

40 years of foresight, insight and integrity

ETHICAL MARKETS© showcases the organizations, trade associations, shareholder activities, the mutual funds and pension funds asset managers, financial planners, venture capital groups, innovative technologies and companies, as well as this vision of maturing, socially-responsible, ethical capitalism fitting humanity’s aspirations for a more peaceful, just and ecologically sustainable world.

ETHICAL MARKETS’ TV series seeks to foster public understanding of all these issues…and awareness of the new players and the choices they offer to consumers, employees, investors, asset managers, financial planners and citizens to align their own lives, work, investment decisions and daily activities with their own highest goals. By showcasing all these groups and individuals spearheading the new ethical markets, we seek to grow this emerging, job-creating sector and expand its market share — globally and locally.

Public Banking Institute

Banking in the Public Interest

The Public Banking Institute (PBI) was formed in January 2011 as an educational non-profit organization. Its mission is to further the understanding, explore the possibilities, and facilitate the implementation of public banking at all levels — local, regional, state, and national.

PBI’s vision is to establish a distributed network of state and local publicly-owned banks that create affordable credit, while providing a sustainable alternative to the current high-risk centralized private banking system.

PBI’s mission includes analyzing U.S. and global financial events to facilitate public banking, sharing best practices and lessons learned from research and initiatives in the U.S. and globally, using PBI’s online resources, website, webinars, blog, and in-person conferences.
