IDEAS WE FRAME
The Bridge Tank advocates the intellectual, social, economic, and cultural thesis that the world is undergoing a renewed diversification. At odds with the vision of a “flat world”, we believe that emerging cultures, societies, industries, and economies are anything but homogenous, and rather selectively choose from among globalization models. Above all, actors in emerging countries innovate on the basis of their own trajectories, forge new links, and express their modern identities clearly and proudly.
This rediversification of the world complements a reinvention of the economic, social, and environmental fabric at local, national, regional, and global levels. As different kinds of economic, social, and natural capital are developed or enhanced, this new diversity grows and flourishes.
Today, the four types of tangible and intangible capital – technical, natural, human, and social – are recomposing rapidly. The financing of the economy is reconnecting to them through new tools. Questioning the growth of these varied forms of capital is what structures our entry points to the practical issues of our recombining world.
