Overcoming the barriers to long-term thinking in financial markets - practical actions for change
Our society tends to have a short-term mindset. This results in damage to people and to the environment, as well as investment that is unlikely to be resilient. So encouraging long-term thinking in financial markets is crucial to the shift towards a more sustainable economy and society.
Forum for the Future’s new report Overcoming the barriers to long-term thinking identifies new ways to tackle this challenge and make long-term thinking mainstream. Funded by Friends Provident Foundation, this involved research into the behaviours, structures and incentives that reinforce short-termism within the economy.
Join Forum for the Future on 4th July as they launch the report, making 3 recommendations for action:
Forum for the Future will give you a summary of the practical recommendations for action arising from their report, and you will hear perspectives from speakers including Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director of Forum for the Future. They also want to hear from you about what your organisation is doing, and plans to do, to drive this agenda forward.
