A Banker Reflects on Money, Love, and Virtue
Maria José Pereira
When money, love and virtue are raised in the same conversation, most people respond with surprise and scepticism. What do these concepts have in common? They belong to different realms. When they are raised by a former banker and elaborated into an approach that could transform the way we think about our world and the way we structure our organisations and society, then something truly radical is afoot.
It does not propose a detailed programme for reform. Instead it offers a way to bring qualitative discussion into a material area, so as to allow for construction of a world where money, love and virtue work together, not in contradiction.
"This book will not be comfortable reading for many in finance today. But because of that, and because of finance’s urgent need to rebuild its relationship with society, it is all the more necessary that it be widely read."
John Nugée, retired central banker – (Bank of England and Hong Kong Monetary Authority).
