Designing for Disruption

Tomorrow’s financial system will not look like today’s. Possibilities will be shaped by new entrants and technologies and by shifts in the global economy’s centre of gravity. Crises and innovation may present unpredictable and alternative pathways of change.

The Inquiry, with support from the OECD, therefore developed a set of scenarios to frame discussions of the possible future policy contexts within which a sustainable financial system needs to evolve. Each of the four scenarios (Global Nudges, Emerging Accords, State Patchworks and Technology Edges) reflects a potential future in which the financial system is aligned with sustainable development, albeit in different ways.
