A New Capitalism

Creating A Just Economy That Works for All

What if capitalism could work for everyone, not just the privileged few? What if we could create a just economy that works for all? A New Capitalism with Frank Altman explores answers to these questions through stimulating conversations with leading change makers in the environmental and social impact investing movement. He focuses on the practical steps that you can take to make a positive difference with your money. Altman is a pioneer in the field of community development finance. Over an illustrious 35-year career as founder and CEO of Community Reinvestment Fund, USA, he has created market solutions to drive investments to under-resourced communities. CRF has since financed thousands of job-creating small businesses, owned primarily by women and people of color, community facilities, and affordable housing in more than 1,000 primarily low-income communities in all 50 states.
