New Stories about the Purpose of the Economy
New stories must establish three new core beliefs around the economy:
1.Humans are part of nature, and thus dependent on it
2.The economy’s purpose is to support life
3.The measure of an economy’s success is the creation of wellbeing for all
Give this thought a chance: “Economy is care!”

Wellbeing Economy Stories are Diverse
There is not one blueprint for a Wellbeing Economy; the shape, institutions, and activities that get us there will look different, both across countries and between different communities within countries. However, the high-level goals for a Wellbeing Economy are the same everywhere: wellbeing for all, on a flourishing planet.
To tell new stories, we must use our collective imagination. What might a Wellbeing Economy look like in your community?
