What is value? Can the very act of valuation shape our values and constrain our choices? How do the valuations of markets affect the values of our society? In his new book Value(s), Mark Carney examines the relationship between value and values. Bringing a truly international perspective to the three major crises before us of credit, climate and Covid, he sets out a framework for the change needed for an economic and social renaissance in a post-Covid world.
The book has been described as “Indispensable” by Christine Lagarde, “radical” by Bono, “thought-provoking” by Gordon Brown – and Antony Gormley has called it, “A roadmap to a fairer and more responsible, resilient world. […] What do we invest in – profit or human potential? This book is irradiated with the inspiring and critical conviction that money can be transformed into a tool of collective good.”
Mark Carney is the UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance and Prime Minister Johnson’s Finance Adviser for COP26, to be held in Glasgow in 2021. He was previously Governor of the Bank of England (2013-2020), and Governor of the Bank of Canada (2008-2013).
