Episode 96 – John Fullerton, Founder, The Capital Institute, on Regenerative Economics

Y on Earth Community Podcast

John Fullerton, founder of The Capital Institute, is a global thought leader in regenerative economics. In this episode, you’ll hear John describe the eight principles of a regenerative economy that he has articulated via several publications, including the booklet: “Regenerative Capitalism: How Universal Patterns and Principles Will Shape the New Economy” (2015). In his more recent piece, “Finance for a Regenerative World,” he evokes the epic and monumental choices that we face as a society, quoting scripture: “You cannot serve both God and Mammon [greed/power/empire/domination].” Citing Thomas Berry, Buckminster Fuller, Dana Meadows, E.F. Shumacher, Kenneth Boulding, Jane Jacobs, Willis Harman, and Rudolf Steiner as his “intellectual heroes,” John lays out a comprehensive framework for an ethics based, equality focused, stewardship oriented, and heart-centric economic system.In a profoundly poignant and pertinent thought experiment, John asks: “What if we considered the human economy as a living system?” From this inquiry, he has researched various ecological disciplines and biological sciences, arriving at the analogous characteristics required (or endemic to) a regenerative economic system – these are his eight principles: (1) Seeks balance, (2) In right relationship, (3) Views wealth holistically, (4) Innovative, adaptive, responsive, (5) Empowered participation, (6) Honors place & community, (7) Edge effect abundance, (8) Robust circulation.Asserting that our current economic system is both insolvent and bankrupt from the standpoint of ecological laws of nature, John further exhorts us: “We’re at a pivotal, epic, defining moment ~ we’re at the end of the Modern Age… We either grab on to this regenerative paradigm… or we go back to another dark age.”John Fullerton is an unconventional economist, impact investor, writer, and some have said philosopher. Building on and integrating the work of many, he is the architect of Regenerative Economics, first conceived in his 2015 booklet, “Regenerative Capitalism: How Universal Patterns and Principles Will Shape the New Economy.”After a successful 20-year career on Wall Street where he was a Managing Director of what he calls “the old JPMorgan,” John listened to a persistent inner voice and walked away in 2001 with no plan but many questions. A few months later he experienced 9-11 first hand. The questions crystalized into his life’s work with the creation of the Capital Institute in 2010 where his work reflects the rising evolutionary shift in consciousness from Modern Age thinking to Integral Age thinking. Capital Institute is dedicated to the bold re-imagination of economics and finance in service to life. Guided by the universal patterns and principles that describe how all healthy living systems that sustain themselves in the real world actually work, the promise of Regenerative Economics and Finance is to unlock the profound and presently unseen potential that is the source of our future prosperity and the reason for hope in our troubled times.During his Wall Street career, John managed numerous capital markets and derivatives businesses around the globe and was JPMorgan’s Oversight Committee Representative that managed the rescue of Long Term Capital Management in 1998, and finally was Chief Investment Officer for Lab Morgan before retiring from the firm. A committed impact investor, John is the Chairman of New Day Enterprises, PBC, and the co-founder of Grasslands, LLC. He is a board member of First Crop, the Savory Institute, and Stone Acres Farm, is an advisor to numerous sustainability initiatives, and is a member of the Club of Rome. John speaks internationally to public audiences and universities, and writes a monthly blog, The Future of Finance.RESOURCES:https://capitalinstitute.org/https://capitalinstitute.org/8-principles-regenerative-economy/https://capitalinstitute.org/regenerative-capitalism/https://capitalinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Regen-Finan-RVSD-ACT-1-Interactive.pdfhttps://capitalinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ACT-IV-FINANCE-FOR-A-REGENERATIVE-WORLD.pdfhttps://www.facebook.com/CapitalInstitutehttps://twitter.com/CapInstitutehttps://www.linkedin.com/company/capital-institute/https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-fullerton-a5abbb4/John Fullerton, founder of The Capital Institute, is a global thought leader in regenerative economics.
