The New Economics Institute (NEI) is an independent think-and-do tank dedicated to transforming the economic paradigm now prevailing in the United States. It seeks to forge the policies and practices needed for an economy that puts people and planet first and gives priority to sustaining human and natural communities. Mainstream policy-makers, businesses, and even many reformers are still prisoners of old economic assumptions, which cannot address the twenty-first century challenges of society and environment at home and abroad. www.neweconomicsinstitute.org
An outgrowth of the 30-year-old E. F. Schumacher Society, NEI is working in close partnership with the 25-year-old New Economics Foundation in London, which has already found success in creating new economy models, to leverage and expand upon the programs developed in the United Kingdom. Further, NEI’s Board of Directors includes prominent thought leaders in many relevant fields.
The new President will join NEI at a critical time in its evolution to promote the mission, build the organization, nurture relationships nationally and internationally, and implement programs that establish NEI as a force driving an understanding, appreciation and acceptance of the principles undergirding a new economy. S/he will bring the characteristics and experiences needed to help NEI achieve an ambitious but essential agenda: to go beyond questioning the current economic model and begin to develop and promote a new one, transforming traditional definitions of progress and exploring areas of priority and policy where transformative change is now essential.
