Sustainable capitalism will be enabled by four types of Fintech driven innovation:

None of these innovations has any significant tech risk  – the solutions will use technology that already exists and that is well proven. I hope this innovation happens within a capitalist system. If capitalism fails to produce this innovation, populist authoritarians from both right and left will make the world a much worse place for all of us.
