Let’s create an economy for everyone.

Based on extensive research with organizations and companies that are boldly breaking out of business as usual, Beloved Economies offer readers an imagination-expanding vision of what work could be.

Authors Rimington and Cea explore possibilities for how we work, learning with more than sixty people from a wide array of enterprises. What these groups have in common is that they are generating forms of success that audaciously prioritize well-being, meaning, connection and resilience—alongside conventional metrics like quality and financial success.

Beloved Economies offers readers seven specific practices as a springboard for changing how we work. As the book reveals, it’s not only what we do, but how we do it that can be a powerful lever to move us into economies that all of us can love.

Jess Rimington is a next economy strategist focused on the design and ethics of emerging post-capitalisms. Her practice and research is grounded in historical analysis, accessible truth-telling, and present-day experimentation. She is focused on supporting the imagination of small business and organizational leaders to step out of the current extractive systems into more resilient paradigms by transforming how we work. Jess’s work is informed by over a decade of experience leading two global organizations–as both an Executive Director and Managing Director–building cross-cultural staff teams with innovative work cultures rooted in power-sharing. Jess served as a Visiting Scholar with Stanford University’s Global Projects Center where she co-facilitated research with more than 200 collaborators to identify co-creative practices that awaken next economies.

Joanna Levitt Cea is dedicated to reimagining investment and funding practices to lift up the well-being of all. She has worked in community-driven efforts to stop destructive investments that threaten local livelihoods and ecosystems, and she has also helped launch solutions that enable communities to determine our own economic futures. Joanna led the human rights organization International Accountability Project for eight years, and served as founding director of the Buen Vivir Fund with Thousand Currents. She served as a Visiting Scholar with Stanford University’s Global Projects Center where she co-facilitated a research initiative with more than 200 collaborators to identify co-creative practices that awaken next economies.
