The talk will be followed by a panel discussion including social impact entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors, Tony Brown, Alicia DeLia, and Julia Wilkinson, moderated by Miriam Altman-Reyes ('08).

In his book, Frank Altman takes modern capitalism to task. As CEO of Community Reinvestment Fund, USA, and a pioneer of the community development and reinvestment industry, Altman's new book, A New Capitalism, examines our economy from several perspectives, including history, politics, culture, and economics. He also illuminates how systemic racism in policies like redlining endures despite attempts to eradicate them.

A problem-solver by nature, Altman's work isn't just analytical. Deploying innovative approaches, Altman has used capital markets to fund small businesses, affordable housing, charter schools, community organizations, and community transformation. His results are an object lesson in how capitalism can be profitable while also being just.

"Today, we stand at a unique moment of opportunity. There are trends that point to evolving American values in support of inclusion of those too long denied full participation in the marketplace and society itself," Altman said. "Stakeholders of all natures are placing new demands that markets act upon values of diversity, equity, inclusion, excellence, and sustainability. The long-held status quo belief that corporations must only focus on maximizing shareholder profits is eroding. We live in a time when change feels possible, and a new, more just form of capitalism is at hand."

A New Capitalism: Creating a Just Economy That Works for All, by Frank Altman, is now available. The book is published with Forbes Books, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes, and is available on Amazon today.
