The first edition of BANK 2.0 took the financial services world by storm and became synonymous with disruptive customer behaviour, technology shift and new banking models. In BANK 3.0, Brett King looks at the latest trends that are redefining financial services and payments. From the global scramble for dominance of the mobile wallet, the expectations created by tablet computing, the operationalizing of the cloud and the explosion of social media he explores: • How Social Media has exposed pricing, over-regulation, outdated processes and poor policy, • How mobile technology is completely changing the context of banking, • How customer advocacy is killing traditional brand marketing, • The growth of the 'de-banked' consumer who doesn't need a bank at all; and • Why Banking is no longer a place you go, but something you do BANK 3.0 shows that the gap between customer and financial services players is rapidly growing, leaving massive opportunities for new, non-bank competitors to totally disrupt the industry.

Despite social and economic advances around the world, poverty and disease persist, exacerbated by the mounting challenges of climate change, natural disasters, political conflict, mass migration, and economic inequality. While governments commit to addressing these challenges, traditional public and philanthropic dollars are not enough. Here, innovative finance has shown a way forward: by borrowing techniques from the world of finance, we can raise capital for social investments today. Innovative finance has provided polio vaccines to children in the DRC, crop insurance to farmers in India, pay-as-you-go solar electricity to Kenyans, and affordable housing and transportation to New Yorkers. It has helped governmental, commercial, and philanthropic resources meet the needs of the poor and underserved and build a more sustainable and inclusive prosperity. Capital and the Common Good shows how market failure in one context can be solved with market solutions from another: an expert in securitization bundles future development aid into bonds to pay for vaccines today; an entrepreneur turns a mobile phone into an array of financial services for the unbanked; and policy makers adapt pay-for-success models from the world of infrastructure to human services like early childhood education, maternal health, and job training. Revisiting the successes and missteps of these efforts, Georgia Levenson Keohane argues that innovative finance is as much about incentives and sound decision-making as it is about money. When it works, innovative finance gives us the tools, motivation, and security to invest in our shared future. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Georgia Levenson Keohane is executive director of the Pershing Square Foundation. She is also a professor in the Social Enterprise Program at Columbia Business School and a senior fellow at New America Foundation. She is the author of Social Entrepreneurship for the 21st Century (2013).

In one dramatic swoop, the Great Recession exposed flaws in the financial industry and the danger of bubbles. But the subsequent fallout has revealed more structural weaknesses so severe that they threaten our nation’s economic health and the welfare of our democratic society. The problems are immense: a scarcity of well-paid jobs, underemployment, heavy consumer debt, and a scandalous number of children living in poverty. Multinationals and the megawealthy tuck their money into tax havens, while the rest of us the middle class, the mom-and-pop businesses, the strivers grasping for a better life just barely hang on. What happened to the American Dream? Capitalism is not working like it used to, concludes Philip Kotler, a renowned business thinker and classically trained economist. Fourteen interlocked forces are undermining our once exceptional market economy, which now struggles to sustain its roles as the engine of growth and prosperity and as a rudder in turbulent times. Confronting Capitalism  delivers a sweeping assessment of the vulnerabilities in our system. Cutting through the noise the political squabbles, finger pointing, and strident ideologies it carefully analyzes what’s gone wrong. It synthesizes a vast amount of data, analysis, and ideas, considering opposing arguments and identifying the ones that stand up to scrutiny. And it offers dozens of suggestions for fixing problems and buffering weaknesses. From the impact of tax loopholes on income inequality to the corrupting influence of corporate lobbyists on politics, refreshingly clear explanations provide both the big picture and the depth and nuance needed to grasp the issues. The book looks at challenges in the global economy, then focuses its lens at home, including: • How worker well-being has plummeted as the minimum wage fails to meet sustenance levels, while companies rely on taxpayers to shoulder the gap  with ideas for how to raise the minimum wage while minimizing job loss and maintaining global competitiveness • How technology and automation have disrupted industries from music to retail to manufacturing, and threaten the steady demise of more jobs with strategies for expanding opportunities through entrepreneurship, apprenticeship programs, and more training in STEM fields • How the trough-to-peak business cycle intrinsic to capitalist market economies has triggered 33 recessions in the United States from 1857 to today with proposed policies for cooling down over-heated economies and reducing speculation as well as corporate strategies for moderating turbulence

How good companies build a culture of integrity In the present environment of corporate governance brought on by high–profile executive scandals, this book makes a strong case for encouraging business leaders to manage beyond compliance. Achieving the bare minimum of compliance isn′t enough. By making corporate responsibility and integrity a strategic priority–rather than something companies are forced to comply with–companies can realize tangible financial returns and benefits. This book provides practical advice, effective tools, and time–tested best practices for approaching corporate integrity strategically and managing an integrity program on a day–to–day basis. There is a growing realization that compliance with the rules is only a minimum standard of performance, and an increasing demand from stakeholders at every level — shareholders, employees, customers along the entire supply chain, consumers, advocacy groups, and the local community at large — for more transparency and accountability from corporations. But most businesses have little experience and few tools to deal with the urgent demand to increase corporate responsibility. Corporate Integrity provides practical tools and proven processes to manage complex integrity dilemmas and support implementation: Explains how to create a culture of integrity in your organization and how to motivate the appropriate corporate behaviors. Coverage includes: How to assess and measure integrity; how to align corporate integrity commitments and actions; how to design and implement dependable and strategic corporate accountability systems and processes; how to develop corporate integrity standards and report on them, and much more. Includes a wealth of practical business tools and best practices that readers can apply to improve the level of corporate integrity in their own company. Features three detailed case studies and numerous other examples that illustrate corporate integrity dilemmas and solutions in action. Shows how managing corporate responsibility strategically and proactively can go beyond a mere public relations exercise to foster a corporate "win" in the court of popular opinion and in the marketplace. Bridges the gaps between corporations, governments, employees, interest groups, and consumers. Offers tools and solutions that apply to both for–profit corporations and non–profit organizations.
