Live tweeting @mikeeisenberg’s speech to the impact entrepreneurship summit at 125th anniversary of the first Zionist Congress in Basel. On covenantal capitalism, Herzl’s vision, and the role of Israel in this 🧵
1. Herzl and the first Zionist congress rebirthed a covenant. Now we need to do that again. Israel is proof that dreams need not just be dreams.
2. Herzl’s dream is a reality. We have shared values and sacrifices. We are turning from a startup nation to a scale up nation. Now is the time to build Israel’s new economic covenant.

This is a learning thread.

A lesson in #language, "purpose" & #NewPower.

From inception, #NetZero was devised as the language to garner uptake/demand from citizenry while simultaneously building a framework to propel #CarbonMarkets, #CCS technology, #NETs, & #nuclear.
Note the panel. Nicole Schwab as moderator (daughter of Klaus Schwab), #naturebasedsolutions, 1TDOTorg, #Gates, #Carney (#ImpactInvesting), Nazareth (regulation), & Bill Winters, chair, Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary #CarbonMarkets.

Feb 25 2021: "An expected dash by big corporations for #offsets to meet their climate targets has prompted financial exchanges to launch #carbon #futures contracts to capitalise on what could be a multi-billion dollar market."

"...their market is expected to grow to as much as $50 billion by 2030. Among the major corporations that say they expect to use them to compensate for any #emissions they cannot cut from their operations & products are #Unilever, EasyJet, Royal Dutch #Shell & #BP."
"The Institute for International Finance's Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets, launched by U.N.’s Special Envoy for Climate Action Mark Carney" aspires to "create a multi-billion dollar offset market in the coming months."

1/ With financial innovations such as #sustainablefinance and #impactinvesting increasingly viewed as key to the solution of current social and environmental crises, let’s take a look at how we got here, what might be problematic about that and what to do about it. 👇
2/ This is a thread about the empirical part of my book that traces the history of #socinv in the UK. I’ll leave the theoretical argument based on Fligstein & McAdam’s strategic action field theory & pragmatist action theory for another time.
springer.com/gp/book/978303…
3/ Financial innovations such as #impinv or #socinv mean that firms succeed to make money from financial intermediation where they haven’t done before. To do so, these firms have to make others participate: investees wanting finance, gov to regulate (and often subsidize), etc.

"Very soon #pensions worth trillions of dollars could become the frontline of sustainable investing."

#GreatReset #ImpactInvesting #SDGs #GlobalSouth #SouthAsia #TCFD #EmergingMarkets

"... the greatest commercial opportunity of our time." — Mark Carney

The ecologic crises will not be solved in the same economic system that created it. The planet will not be saved by those that have destroyed it.

Another quote from the film:

"Over the next decade, approx. 95 trillion dollars is needed for infrastructure."

It's not "fossil capitalism". It's #capitalism. Capitalism serves capital (profits). #Socialism serves society.

"Imagination", as framing, is being heavily employed by those tasked w/ obtaining social license for the #greatreset being foisted on the global citizenry. #Language ImageImageImageImage
For those who are not familiar with the SDGs referred to in the #Brookings #GreatReset screenshot - The UN-WEF partnership firmly positions Word Economic Forum at the helm of the #SDGs (Sustainable Developments Goals). Not because they care about climate...

Not because they care about poverty, #biodiversity, or world hunger. #SDGs represent the new global poverty economy of #impactinvesting & emerging markets. #3 (chart) is very high, because of the coming "#vaccine revolution" being manufactured by WEF in partnership w/ WHO. Image

With #Covid19 as the ultimate catalyst, the push is on to implement the financialization of nature.

The Natural Capital Coalition is made up of approx. 300 orgs/corps while working w/ thousands. Partners include #CocaCola, #Shell, #Walmart.

Those with money will own #nature.
Those w/ $ will own #nature.

The very corporations that have brought us to the precipice of #ecological #collapse - will now be appointed as the new stewards of nature. This has been dubbed (#XR Business - Elkington/Volans) as the new biosphere economy.

#NewDealForNature
Let's take a look at how #Covid19 has been successfully leveraged (both fear & distraction) in order to aid the largest transformation of the global economic system in modern history. Assigning monetary value to nature ("natural capital") will replace #GDP.

Over the years, I've had friends criticize the endless @Forbes 30 Under 30 lists. I've heard stories that undermine the 'credibility' of these lists, shining glaring holes into what seems to be purely a hype machine aka the 'Forbes Hustle'. Today,I had my own experience: (1/13)
My story involves the #impactinvesting ecosystem in #Africa, and a white expat founder...which many have commented are catalysts for the Forbes Hustle. I discovered this social enterprise doing some desk research and reached out via email, this is what happened next (2/13)
1) My initial email indicating the fund I'm affiliated with and expressed interest in a call. He responds, and tells me his earliest availability was 7 weeks away. 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 #𝟭: Why type of entrepreneur pushes off an investor for 7 weeks? (3/13)

Grateful to @arc_gov_au for funding my project on #impactinvesting for #biodiversity #conservation & #naturalcapital
And thanks to @PolicyFuturesUQ @HASSUQ for their support. Congrats to fellow new DECRAs, and commiserations to the many great researchers who missed out this time
Broken link: list here uq.edu.au/news/article/2…
(I'm down the bottom, as the grants are ordered by $ value 🤮)
Very grateful to be funded (I'm in the 16%), though the excitement has certainly dulled over the last 4 weeks of embargo and handling of the announcements 🤷‍♀️ Not a fun time for successful & unsuccessful DECRA candidates theconversation.com/research-fundi…
