Jeremy Balkin: 'Absolutely Finance Is A Force For Good'

Jeremy Balkin, founder of Give While You Live, stopped by HuffPost Live at Davos to talk about using finance to make positive change.

"Absolutely finance is a force for good," Balkin said.

Balkin said there must be change in the banking industry, and it has to come from within.

"I'm not sure you can impose from the outside, cultural change... I think it has to come from within, I think it has to be organic," he said.

Balkin addressed the negative feelings many people have about the failures of banking.

"I think we've been in a really unique period of history where we've had moral and ethical failure... the difference is, we feel finance much more because it's an empty pocket, it's money... these other ethical failures, the tangible results of those failures we don't necessarily feel as directly," Balkin said.
