“Another economic world is here, and hazel henderson is its John the Baptist and Tom Paine, its chronicler and unabashed cheerleader. Read this thrilling and lucid book about the transformation of life-destroying economics into a healing force that turns daily financial transactions into net producers of the common good. Hazel’s writing is clear and inspiring; the picture she paints so plausible and fact-based that optimism about the future is the natural response.”
