Public debate around social impact bonds (SIBs) ranges from extraordinary expectations to passionate opposition and such a polarised debate can risk poor policy making. The GO Lab takes an agnostic stance and this report seeks to move beyond ideological debate to provide a constructive response based on robust academic evidence.
We need to bring impact to the center of our economic system, alongside profit, so that it can drive the systemic creation of positive outcomes.
Impact, Sir Ronald Cohen
