The world as a whole must move beyond our current economic structure to avoid a catastrophic environmental, economic and social collapse. Our structure of capitalism and socialism needs to be replaced by the principles of a regenerative economy. Regenerative economics is based on a concept of "holism" meaning that everything is organized into systems that are interlinked and function together; when these pieces function together they form a larger pattern. This form of holism is something that we have observed in everything. The universe is organized into systems. These systems are so incredibly broad they can be applied to the sacred geometries of the ancient Greeks to the study of ecosystems and social media today. The way that regenerative economics differs from the current approach to sustainability is that instead of using the reductionist logic to solve the problems, it aims directly at building healthy human networks, by using these universal principles and patterns.
