Towards a sustainable and just financial system

An Evangelical Perspective to Guide Reform Steps towards a Social and Ecological Transformation of the Financial Economy

Financial crises and the growing economic inequality are unmistakable indications, both nationally and globally, of deficiencies in the financial economy and its supervision. And yet the current challenges of globalization cannot be overcome without an economy directed towards ecological and social sustainability. With this discussion paper, the EKD wants to carry out “literacy work in relation to the financial economy” and − as “admonisher, mediator and driving force of sustainable development” – to contribute to transforming the financial system along these lines.
