THE ETHICAL ECONOMY SEMINAR
“In fact, the building blocks of a different economic order are already here- even in the workings of financial markets- and if we institutionalize its value logic, we have an historic opportunity to enable a more rational and socialized economy that would meet a broader range of values than what the present system can do. At present, we are going through a value crisis.”
We are very honored to invite Mr. Nicolai Peitersen from United Kingdom to be our distinguished speaker for this seminar. Nicolai Peitersen, the co-founder of a number of companies and organizations, including The Ethical Economy Ltd, the UK based company behind a management tool of ethics that quantifies ethical performance, enabling the management of corporate ethics on a real time basis. Nicolai is trying to pioneer a more dynamic trend in corporate responsibility by combining it with algorithms and web 2.0 software and is helping global businesses, institutional investors and organizations to subscribe to it.
Nicolai started out with Economic Research at the Danish Central Bank and later at the investment bank JP Morgan where his team was voted the best global research team by ‘Institutional Investor’. A collection of his research notes were published by JP Morgan in a booklet titled ‘Europe in Transformation’ which he toured with for a while. During the same period, Nicolai started a cross-disciplinary think tank in Denmark with a charter in Russia which took off to such a degree that he decided to run it fulltime. Nicolai has written, edited and contributed to a multitude of papers, booklets and reviews. Finally, Nicolai is engaged around a number of global issues, in particularly sustainable development- where he holds a number of advisory positions- and global citizenship & governance – where he’s a founding member OCEAN (www.ocean48.org).
