Is it possible to have a non-profit stock exchange? Publicly held companies are usually not motivated by the greater good, but by profit – profit that is demanded by large institutional investors.
What if I could invest in a marketplace of ideas which returned social value rather than cash dividends? A Kickstarter for social good for lobbying corporations rather than Congress.
I think lobbyists are talking to the wrong people. Since corporations are responsible for legislation, social change will only be instituted by corporations. It has to be in their interest to be good. So, people can choose industries or companies that they would like to influence and start writing letters.
