A shifting global economy now offers the opportunity for a more ethical system to take root to balance the injustices of extreme poverty and wealth. Wealth creation can be the result of a new kind of social production no longer only characterized by the pursuit of private interests, materialist consumerism, and individual financial gain. Financial markets could become a central arena in which a diversity of ethical concerns could be integrated into tangible economic valuations. Advocates use of innovations such as open-source software, social-media platforms, socialized production, and other diffuse applications; these developments help initiate a radical democratization of financial markets and the value decisions they generate.
