Government and the impact economy

A quiet revolution is changing the way our society seeks to create social good. A new generation of entrepreneurs, investors, and nonprofits leaders is working to develop profitable and socially conscious business and investment models. This is the impact economy.

With promising new vehicles such as social enterprises, social impact bonds, impact investments, and benefit corporations, we have a chance to use public and private investment in ways that generate real, measureable social impact. If the impact economy is to reach–or top–$1 trillion by 2020, the federal government will need to encourage its growth and activity, set the rules of the road, and help bring together a diverse community of players.
