New Economics Institute
Last weekend, Capital Institute was privileged to present at and attend the New Economic Institute’s Strategies for a New Economy<http://neweconomicsinstitute.org/conference> conference. The conference was an unmitigated success, bringing together a diverse group of new economy movement builders including small business people, community organizers, advocates of alternative currencies, local bankers, campaign finance reformers, and many more. We enjoyed getting to meet a great number of the over 500 attendees and to learn more about all of their exciting work from the local to the national level.
Former Executive Director of Ceres Robert Massie has been appointed CEO and President of the New Economics Institute effective March 19. Massie led the launch of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) from the helm at Ceres. As President of NEI, Massie will oversee the upcoming Strategies for a New Economy conference where the Capital Institute will host a track on finance. We look forward to continuing our close relationship with NEI as they continue to drive the transition to a new economy with Massie leading the way.
