 Te thical conomy 
Rebuilding Value Ater the Crisis 
ADAM ARVIDSSON AND NICOLAI PEITERSEN
A NEW, MORE BALANCED SYSTEM OF ECONOMICPRODUCTION AND WEALTH DISTRIBUTION THATFUNDAMENTALLY RETHINKS THE DEFINITION OF VALUE.
A revolutionized global economy now oers theopportunity or a more ethical system to take root,one that recties the crisis spots o our currentdownturn while balancing the injustices o extremepoverty and wealth. Adam Arvidsson and NicolaiPeitersen outline the shape such an economy wouldtake, identiying its echoes in innovations already inhabiting our system, such as open-source sotware,social-media platorms, socialized production, andother diuse applications.Arvidsson and Peitersen’s model encompasses pro-ductive publics held together by socialized networkso wealth creation that unold beyond the controlo markets and organizations, such as a customer’smeaningul attachment to products and services;nancial markets that act as the main mechanismo the distribution o wealth; and a new globalreputation economy that sets the value o wealth.As nineteenth-century entrepreneurs, philosophers,bankers, artisans, and social organizers planned amore economically ecient and ethically desirablecourse or modern capitalism, today we can con-struct new instruments, institutions, and inrastruc-ture to reverse the trajectory o a ast-deterioratingeconomic regime. Te authors show wealth creationcan be the result o a new kind o social productioncombining the pursuit o individual interests with arealization o the common good.
