Impact : Reshaping capitalism to drive real change



Changing the world and making a profit can go hand in hand.

'A fascinating blueprint for a hope-filled future underpinned by the social power of impact investing.' - Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Former CEO, World Bank Group

"Capitalism isn't immoral, it's amoral - it's a wild beast that needs to be led. Here Sir Ronnie provides the core operating manual for those seeking to do good while also doing well." - Bono, Lead Singer of U2 and Co-Founder of The Rise Fund

'Impact is a new and very important idea to reshape and save our economic system.' - Paul Romer, Nobel Prize in Economics, 2018

'The book is timely, visionary, bold...and thoroughly persuasive.' - Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

"The most genuinely hopeful and important work on finance and society I've read or imagined reading in decades." - Peter Sacks, Professor of English and American Literature and Language, Harvard University

Throughout the world, capitalism and democracy are being challenged with great force. The world must change, but we cannot change it by throwing money at old ideas that no longer work. We need a new path to a new world where inequality is shrinking, where natural resources are regenerated, and people can benefit from shared prosperity.

This is the world being created by the Impact Revolution.

Pre-eminent international investor, entrepreneur, philanthropist and social finance innovator, Sir Ronald Cohen, has dedicated two decades to leading the Impact Revolution to achieve real social and environmental change. As one of the founders of venture capital, which ushered in the Tech Revolution, he builds on his years of personal experience to deliver a compelling account of how impact investing is reshaping capitalism.

Whether you're an aspiring young entrepreneur, an established business person, an investor, a philanthropist, or somebody in government - or are interested, as a consumer or employee, in companies doing good and doing well at the same time - this book is a sure fire way to find out how you can play a role in changing the world.
