Seven Leverage Points for the Passage from Economy to Œconomy

Created date

The concept of leverage points is very well adapted for a coalition wanting to act in favor of the great transition. We need to identify some concrete issues which we think should have a strong leverage effect as it would imply changes in the whole system.

And looking at what is the systemic change about, it would not be a surprise that these leverage points relate either to concepts or to actors or to the very tools which are used in present economy. Here are seven proposed leverage points :

_ 1. Adopt the new word “œconomy” to describe the systemic change
_ 2. Adopt the Charter of universal responsibilities
_ 3. Create a multi-dimensional currency
_ 4. Support a multi-level governance of production, exchange and consumption
_ 5. Adopt relevant governance regimes for the different goods and services
_ 6. Promote global sustainable supply chain, notably through WTO
_ 7. Acknowledge territories as pivotal actors of the œconomy and give territories the means to manage their natural, material, human and immaterial capital
