Good helpful stuff to do with your filthy lucre, if any.

Margaret Atwood, author
Handmaid’s Tale

by Joel Solomon with Tyee Bridge

$50 trillion will change hands in North America by 2050

From Boomers to Millennials, the largest intergenerational wealth transfer in history is underway and the ramifications will remake the world.

The dirty money and greed of “business as usual” is on the brink, wedged between catastrophic climate change and the demographic tidal wave of Millennials pounding the consumer table for real change. These forces are transforming the very nature of capitalism into something different and powerful, towards a clean money revolution.

Joel Solomon, pioneering clean money investor and change agent, lays it on the line. The revolution is underway, the opportunities are everywhere, and the challenges and rewards are immense.

A must-read for investors, aspiring business leaders, and entrepreneurs looking to align values with assets and chart a unique and profitable life course.

The Clean Money Revolution is underway. Join it!

It’s time for the business world to think outside of the box. This is a new era.

Joel sees the future more clearly than Ray Kurzweil. He has already made the world a better place than he found it. I think his Indian name just may be “sees many trillions”.

The Clean Money Revolution lays out a hopeful plan for the future of capitalism.

Anyone who feels we can’t possibly influence the direction of society and change our present course of greed may I suggest you take a leap into the pages of the possible.

My favorite book of the decade!

If you want to be socially adventurous, I can’t think of a better start than Joel’s book. It’s a great field guide to investing with purpose, and it’s also full of the honesty and wisdom that older age hopefully brings.

Clean Money Philosophy

Reinvent capitalism for just prosperity and true security with fair taxation, priority for the commons, and a strong social safety net. Our moral power is to know what our money does to people and places. That is the ‘purpose biography’ of what we love most as ancestors of the future. Wealth management must align. A movement grows. Trillions will shift.

  • What is Clean Money?
  • Is there hope for the future?
  • Why a revolution?
  • What can I do to help?

We need to reconsider the relationship between wealth and social change and the next 20 years offers a remarkable opportunity for a systemic, long- term transformation. With advice and anecdotes from highly successful business leaders and examples of homegrown, successful businesses: The Clean Money Revolution is a practical next step for anyone looking to join the clean money revolution.

Articles & Updates

Money is charged with symbolic meaning. For some it's the Holy Grail, the central quest of life. Others see it as a mere measure of greed, all of it tainted. For Joel Solomon it is raw energy, a latent force that can be harnessed and channeled for the social, ecological and political transformation the world so desperately awaits. His is a fresh vision, insightful, wise and profoundly hopeful.
