How can we build local economies that transform the distribution of wealth and power?
Putting forward entrepreneurship as a social change mechanism is a simplistic approach. We cannot apply business product development to social challenges. If we want to truly build resilient local economies we are going to have to address issues like racism, sexism, hunger, wealth distribution and many more. These are the issues which I believe lie at the root of our economic vulnerability.
Having a thriving entrepreneurial sector is important but not an answer in itself. We cannot put all our eggs in one basket - there is no silver bullet for change, it must happen on all fronts. The more connected the change leaders are the more accelerated their learning is and the faster we move through the eye of the needle.
I do think that there is a way to apply the entrepreneurial mindset to systems challenges - just as Rachel Sinha and Charmain Love identify in their article "Bringing an Entrepreneurial Mindset to the World's Failing Systems". Well, no answers here and lots to think about for me.
