What is the Solidarity Economy?
The concept solidarity economy has diverse origins and varied meanings, all of which revolve around the effort to root economic activity in principles of solidarity, participation, cooperation, and reciprocity as opposed to the competitive individualism characteristic of mainstream capitalist paradigms.
Following the merger of Nef (France), the Banca popolare etica (Italy) and Fiare (Spain), the first alternative ethical bank was launched in 2010 as a European cooperative. The objective is to provide a financial institution dedicated to the growing demand for financing for humanity for the social and solidarity economy.
