• Future of Finance


Exploitative financial relationships and endless growth subtend trans/national inequities including racial capitalism, imperialism, settler colonialism, and climate catastrophe. Other worlds are possible, and they will require other financial systems, institutions, and relationships. With scholars from social movements and academia, we bring together knowledge producers committed to theorizing and enacting these worlds. Future of Finance convenes public programs, sustains scholar-practitioner-activist collaborations, and produces multimedia output including academic publications, documentary films, high profile op-eds, materials for political education, and more.
