This video discusses the idea of economic sustainability, and how businesses that are economically responsible are developing in response to environmental concerns.

  • 00:00:00 The video discusses ways to become more economically responsible, and discusses the concept of sustainability. It notes that in the 1960s, many people began to become aware of the fact that banks were financing things that they would never be able to condone, and the scandal reached its peak in the EU in the 1980s, when Christian organizations started to protest banks financing environmentally harmful projects. The video notes that the problem is not just limited to one country, or one industry, but is widespread and needs to be addressed globally.
  • 00:05:00 The video discusses how autosustentables, or businesses that are economically responsible, are developing in response to the Vietnam War. The demonstrators in Washington D.C. find that they are funding the war by investing their money in the stock market, and so begins to emerge the concept of an ethical bank. Banks that advertise they are going to invest money ethically, but then actually invest only in businesses and organizations that they believe have value, are called "ethical banks." In 12 years, the market for autosustentables has grown to include 250 families in the east coast of Mexico. By rotating their attention to several different businesses, each artisan is able to maintain a continuous presence in the market and sell their product at a fair price to customers. This system of self-regulation helps to shorten the gap between the producer and the consumer, and helps to support the growth of social enterprises.
  • 00:10:00 This video explains what an "incubator" is and how it can help with the development of a project, even if the person lacks technical expertise. The video also discusses the importance of project being productively oriented, having a local and long-term economic impact, and being democratically accessible. Finally, the presenter talks about how the festival market has helped small farmers in the city sell their produce directly to consumers. This type of economy needs to mature in order to provide everyone with their basic needs, and when people are able to meet their needs through self-sufficiency, social change will likely decrease violence and poverty.
  • 00:15:00 The presenter talks about the need to move from a materialistic economy to a cultural economy, and how this can be done by creating more jobs in education, research, cinema, theater, music, and art. He also suggests that the way to achieve this is to allow new forms of social and cooperative economy to compete with the current system. He argues that we have been resigned to surviving and that this is no longer the case. If we want to change our lives, we need to change our economy.
  • 00:20:00 The video discusses the idea of "economic sustainability" and how capitalism is not necessarily bad, but can be used to use human capital to create ideas and money with conscience. The video also discusses how the market for cars can be seen as being positive, and how it creates jobs but has a limit to its environmental and physical impacts. The video ends with the idea that we need a much broader transformation of the production economy in order to be sustainable, and that we should focus on human rights instead of money or profit.
