Innovative Finance and the Visible Hand

Capital and the Common Good

“In this book, we will examine how creative configurations of nonprofit, commercial, and public-sector entities come together to harness market forces in the face of market failure. When these partnerships develop new or improved ways to pay for investments in public goods and social and economic development, we call it innovative finance.” — Georgia Levenson Keohane
