Profit Without Oppression

"While many of you view disruption as an innovative/clever product or service… my aim is to disrupt your thinking; to challenge the status quo; to scale welcoming and psychological safety."

-Kim Crayton, Antiracist Economist

Profit Without Oppression unapologetically identifies the systems, institutions, and policies that privilege the few while excluding and harming the many. This book charts an inclusionary strategic path forward that seeks to develop an economic ethos and series of business models that are supremacy, coercion, discrimination, and exploitation free.
