Georgia Levenson Keohane’s Capital and the Common Good has received lots of great coverage over the past couple weeks, starting with a review by Brenda Jubin at Seeking Alpha. Jubin claims that “[t]his book may not be an antidote to the constant barrage of attacks on the financial industry, but it shows that finance can be, and often is, allied with the interests of the public good.”
On October 3, Keohane was interviewed by Diane Horn on the Sustainability Segment of Mind Over Matters on KEXP Seattle.
Keohane has also written a number of articles about the use of innovative finance in helping to solve major world issues, including climate change mitigation; health, disaster response, and poverty reduction; and the global refugee crisis.
