Capital for Purpose

22nd January 2019 (Tuesday) : AIMA, Lajpat Nagar - New Delhi

Capital, as defined by economists, has been applied to various purposes for the past four hundred years. It has served as the foundation for many of humankind’s most extraordinary achievements, including economic prosperity and social improvements. Thanks in part to capital, today’s society enjoys technological and medical progress, as well as declining poverty and hunger. Yet, the world still faces complex challenges and is constantly changing. The use of capital, too, must be adapted to new factors such as climate change and the cultural shifts brought by millennials. In this context, individuals, civil society, businesses and governments may recalibrate the purposes for which capital is used in an effort to mitigate unwanted externalities. Focusing capital on long-term purposes has the potential to address many of today’s challenges, from data privacy scandals to the calamity of plastic waste. The time has come to counter excessive short-termism and start doing business as unusual.
