BY GRAHAM BOYD & JACK REARDON
The climate crisis, 17 sustainable development goals, and the personal challenges we are facing cannot be solved if we just try harder. Just as Picasso and Einstein realised a century ago, when problems are insoluble, it’s because the way we’re looking at the world is the problem. Rebuild is a DIY toolkit for you to be regenerative, net positive, to solve wicked challenges, from your personal challenges through to our global ones. (Btw, they’re connected.)
An economy is just a method to provide living organisms with what they need to survive and thrive. It’s clear our human economy is failing us massively, the climate crisis is evidence enough. But we can create an economy that works for the planet, for people, and for profit, because we can reinvent the foundations, instead of just trying to patch the regulations.
About the Authors
We can rise, phoenix-like, from today’s burning global challenges. All of us, and our children, can thrive in the coming decades, because we can build a regenerative global economy: an ecosystem of regenerative businesses.
Today I apply the expertise gathered across three careers (particle physicist, manager with Procter and Gamble, serial startup founder) to bring that vision to reality. I incubate regenerative startups; am starting a seed stage investment fund for ecosystems of regenerative startups; consult to multi-nationals and start-ups on harnessing conflict to drive their own regeneration.. And I write books so that you can do it yourself.
With a doctorate in economics, I have become a tireless advocate of reforming and reconceptualizing economics education so that the discipline of economics can help solve the world’s numerous and interconnected problems. I am the founding editor of the International Journal of Pluralism and Economics Education IJPEE, which provides a global forum for educators committed to changing how we educate our students and how we conceptualize economics.
I have also written three books on economics, pluralism, and economics education. I am currently putting the finishing touches on a novel exploring the fluidity of gender. I currently teach economics at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

This book, by our colleague Robert Dellner, covers redesigning our self, our institutions, our economy, our system of finance, and what we mean by investment so that we can build the architecture we need to address the 17 UN SDG.
“It is a book that I spent a lifetime writing, a book that took me on a fascinating journey-a journey that I’m happy to share with you.”
