‘We’re in a values crisis’: An in-depth conversation with Carol Anne Hilton, author of Indigenomics

Hilton’s book releases today, and argues for “igniting a $100 billion Indigenous economy”

Why It Matters

COVID-19 is a health and social crisis, but it’s also an economic crisis. With record high unemployment and poverty rates, and all of this unfolding along gender, race, and other socioeconomic lines, many agree it’s time for a new, far more inclusive — and decolonized economic system. Could Indigenomics be it?

For many across social impact and economic spaces, the pandemic has delivered a very clear message: Our mainstream economic system does not work. Or, more boldly, our economic system works, but was designed and continues to function on the basis of exclusion and oppression. 

That’s certainly the view held by Carol Anne Hilton, and has been since long before the pandemic. 

Hilton is the author of a new book called Indigenomics. Released today, Indigenomics makes the case for “igniting the $100 billion Indigenous economy” by increasing “the visibility, role, and responsibility of the emerging modern Indigenous economy and the people involved.” 

Future of Good’s publisher Vinod Rajasekaran sat down with Hilton to learn more about how Indigenomics can reshape a radically inclusive and decolonized economy for the post-pandemic world.
