Rebalancing the Economy – New book from Green Economics Institute

Rebalancing the Economy, edited by Christopher Brook and Miriam Kennet Green Economics Institute Publishing House, UK, 2014 The current generations are at a turning point. Wealth inequality is growing all over the world. This is leading to social unrest and increasing levels of unhappiness in society. This is leading to a decline in social capital.

If companies, people and governments are measured by new yardsticks then growth, wealth and profits will not be the [...]

By Hazel Henderson © 2014 Much has been written about the disruptive shifts in many industrial sectors, from retailing, publishing, manufacturing, entertainment, medicine, law, architecture, transport and public services caused by computers, automation and the digital revolution. Since the robotization of automobile production in the 1960s, debates have raged over the social impacts on employment, cities, education, technological obsolescence, socio-economic policies and globalization. Now the two pillars of all economies are falling: energy and finance.
