Insightful view of how our economy will work in the future
August 13, 2011
This was probably the most influential books that informed my basic understanding of what is wrong with the way we do business with capitalism. Hawken draws a comparison between the natural world: where everything that dies become food for something smaller; and the way of business, where materials are created in a linear fashion and end up clogging our landfills. This textbook is real eye opener - but a blueprint for why organic food SHOULD cost less than pesticide laced foods. He also goes into social implications of bad business practices. Well written and researched. Paul Hawken is a visionary. I have real respect for this man, and have seen him on the stage with the Dalai Lama. I have purchased multiple copies of this textbook in the past and given it as a gift. A MUST read!"
