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.

The Clean Money Revolution, by pioneering investor Joel Solomon, calls for the reinvention of power, purpose and capitalism, that will generate the biggest money making opportunity in history.

$50 trillion will change hands from Boomers to Millennials in North America alone by 2050. It will remake the world. We are ancestors of the future. We must know what our money does to people and places, then take actions to align our dollars with our values.

"An inspiration for new investors!! Joel has a wealth of experience and wisdom to impart, and he does so brilliantly in this book. From the foreword, where he advises to "watch the fringes to know where the mainstream is headed", and where Tyee Bridge notes that "Organics are a revolution of ethics as much as they are of agriculture" - you know that this will be a great thought-provoking experience. What is to follow however, is an inspiring read that challenges pre-conceived notions, and imagines and dares the reader to think differently about how wealth and capital can help to build better communities. If you are an investor, entrepreneur, or community advocate you'll take value from this book."
