Endorsements

"Written with wit, wisdom, and verve, this book is an important update on Henderson's pioneering work as the world's leading advocate of a pragmatic new economics of heart and good sense."

Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade

"Hazel Henderson has the unique gift of pointing directly to the roots of our complex economic, technological, and social problems. Like a Zen master, she often expresses her radical critique in terse, provocative, and yet disarming aphorisms. Her pioneering thoughts have influenced countless scholars, politicians, and business leaders."

Fritjof Capra, Founder and President, The Elmwood Institute

"As we fret and worry about the growing inequity and fragility of the crisis-torn global economy, count on Hazel Henderson to shine a penetrating light on the concept of progress...illuminating vital facets of life that mainstream economists too often obscure or ignore."

Morris Miller, former Executive Director, The World Bank, and author of Debt and Environment
