Abstract

Global consensus has been built around a few key issues, and there have been a slew of unifying declarations and commitments as a result. The climate is changing and those countries in the Paris Accord have committed to reducing carbon output in an attempt to slow it down. The world is inequitable and unstable, and those countries signed up to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have identified 17 areas in which we need to address global development. It is also becoming clearer to the person on the street that capital markets are not as effective at allocating risk as believed and this is putting everyone in danger. The financial crises over the last few decades are examples of how large miscalculations affect billions of lives, especially those who are most vulnerable to begin with.
