Be a CFO and you can help make the World Happy is the motto on my blog thehappycfo.it. So I am super thrilled today to share with all my followers that a book has just been published by a famous person Bertrand Badré making concrete proposal on how Finance can help Improving the world well being. Paraphrasing Nobel prize Robert Schiller : Finance has the potential to offer hope for a more fair , just and Happy World I add - and Finance professionals can put their energy and intelligence to help serve that goal.
Thanks to those who beyond Emmanuel Macron have endorsed #canfinancesavetheworld. Thanks to Christine Lagarde and Angel Gurría from the International Monetary Fund and OECD - OCDE “Can finance be a force for good? When a PPP (a person with in-depth private practice and a profound public commitment) proposes that PPP (private public partnership) improves people’s lives and future, then it can prove transformational for the role and purpose of finance and help make progress on the road to the sustainable development goals.” —Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund “Colorful, confronting, and compelling! Bertrand Badré presents the case for reshaping the international financial architecture and mobilizing global financial flows as drivers of inclusive growth. This book is a call to action for all of us—as we continue to grapple with the legacies of the global financial crisis. We need fresh thinking and new approaches to make sure globalization works for all and to achieve the ambition of the Paris Agreement, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the tax transparency agenda. Finance has a critical role to play in these collective efforts.” — Angel Gurría, Secretary General, OECD /OCDE
