What is FairShares Economy?

The FairShares economy is one in which all who contribute to the creation of wealth have a legal and moral right share in it and participate in decisions on how to invest it. In a FairShares economy, there is a recognition that investment needs rethinking as a concept. Three types of investment create wealth: investments of financial and economic capital (committing money and resources); investments to build social capital (attracting customers and building supply chains); investments of human and intellectual capital by labour (developing skills and generating ideas).

It further recognises the special role of entrepreneurial labour (often providing all three investment types) and grants Founder members a protected right to shape power and wealth sharing arrangements during their lifetime.
