Incremental Value of Social Bonds

Incremental Value of Social Bonds

In the last video to this series of Social Bonds, Keith discusses the concept of social additionality, the idea whereby positive outcomes accrue solely because of the issuance of social bonds, and that the true investment in the social economy is inflated due to refinancing. If only new projects were included in market volumes, the gross size of the market would reduce dramatically.
